Abstract

The crude-oil-degrading strain BAS3 represents a novel species, according to a taxonomic study. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain BAS3 was most similar to that of (IMSNU 14028; 99 % similarity), but the DNA–DNA relatedness to this type strain was only 32 %. The physiological properties of strain BAS3 differ from those of (IMSNU 14028) and other species of . The diamino acid in the cell-wall peptidoglycan of strain BAS3 is -diaminopimelic acid and the major menaquinone is MK-8(H). The name sp. nov. is proposed for the novel species, since its type strain, BAS3 (=DSM 16090=NCIMB 14004), is able to degrade crude oil.
