Abstract

Three novel strains were isolated from a soil sample collected in Japan using GPM agar plates supplemented with superoxide dismutase and/or catalase. The strains were Gram-positive, catalase-positive, irregular rod-shaped bacteria with -diaminopimelic acid as a peptidoglycan diagnostic diamino acid, and the acyl type of the peptidoglycan was acetyl. The major menaquinone was MK-8(H). Mycolic acids were not detected. The G+C content of the DNA was 72–73 mol%. On the basis of morphological and chemotaxonomic properties and a phylogenetic analysis using 16S rRNA gene sequences, these strains were classified as a novel genus and species, gen. nov., sp. nov., in the family of the order . The type strain is KV-628 (=NRRL B-24347=JCM 12835=NBRC 100762).
