Abstract

An aerobic bacterium was isolated from saline soil located in Qinghai, north-west China. The bacterium, designated YIM 70157, was investigated using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The Gram reaction of the organism was positive. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis demonstrated the isolate to be a member of the genus , the closest phylogenetic neighbour of the unknown bacterium being DSM 20408 with a similarity of 99·4 %. The peptidoglycan type of YIM 70157 was A1, with -diaminopimelic acid as diagnostic diamino acid. The major fatty acids were ai-C, ai-C and i-C. The menaquinones were MK-7 and MK-6. The phospholipids were diphosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylinositol. The G+C content of total DNA was 48·5 mol%. On the basis of phylogenetic and phenotypic evidence and DNA–DNA hybridization data, this isolate should be classified as a novel species of , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is YIM 70157 (=DSM 16375=KCTC 19045).
