Abstract

A bacterial strain (designated BB4), which has -glucosidase activity, was isolated from soil around the roots of bamboo plants. Cells were Gram-negative, aerobic, non-motile and straight-rod-shaped. Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed a clear affiliation with members of the family ‘’. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain BB4 showed the following sequence similarities: 97·7 % to XD53, 97·1 % to LMG 1558, 96·2 % to LMG 19981, 94·3 % to RP5575 and <90 % to other members of the ‘’. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 63·8 mol%. The major fatty acids were branched forms, especially large proportions of iso-C, iso-C and iso-C 9, similar to the profile of the genus . The results of DNA–DNA hybridization with XD53 and LMG 1558, in combination with phenotypic characteristics and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, demonstrated that strain BB4 should be classified as a novel species. The name sp. nov. is proposed, with strain BB4 (=KCTC 12359=NBRC 100831) as the type strain.
