Abstract

A taxonomic study was carried out on a bacterial strain, designated KM-45, isolated from forest soil collected near Daejeon, South Korea. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated a clear affiliation of this bacterium to the ‘’ and that it was related most closely to BCRC 17254, DSM 6150 and ATCC 33051 (92·4, 91·2 and 88·9 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, respectively). Cells were Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, motile and rod-shaped. The strain grew well on R2A medium and utilized a broad spectrum of carbon sources. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 58 mol% and the predominant ubiquinone was Q-8. Major fatty acids were C, C 7/iso-C 2-OH, C 7/9/12 and C cyclo. On the basis of the evidence presented, it is proposed that strain KM-45 should be placed in a novel genus and species, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is KM-45 (=KCTC 12358=NBRC 100961).
