Abstract

Strain T5-04, a Gram-negative, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium, was isolated from soil of a ginseng field in South Korea and characterized in order to determine its taxonomic position. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain T5-04 belongs to the -4 subgroup of the , and the highest degrees of sequence similarity determined were to IFO 10564 (97·5 %), JSS26 (97·1 %), IFO 15500 (96·7 %) and IFO 15498 (96·6 %). Chemotaxonomic data revealed that strain T5-04 possesses ubiquinone Q-10 predominantly, C as the predominant fatty acid and sphingoglycolipids, all of which corroborate its assignment to the genus . The results of DNA–DNA hybridization and physiological and biochemical tests clearly demonstrated that strain T5-04 represents a distinct species. Based on polyphasic evidence, T5-04 (=KCTC 12210=NBRC 100801=IAM 15213) should be classified as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
