Abstract

A reddish orange bacterium, strain K07-05, was isolated from soil during a study of the bacterial diversity of a cold desert of the Indian Himalayas and was studied by using a polyphasic approach. The organism had morphological and chemotaxonomic properties consistent with its classification in the genus . Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that strain K07-05 was closely related to DSM 20447 and MTCC 3702 (98.1 and 97.8 % sequence similarity, respectively), whereas the sequence similarity values with respect to the other species with validly published names were between 96.4 and 94.2 %. However, the genomic relatedness, as shown by DNA–DNA hybridization, of strain K07-05 and MTCC 3702 is 49.5 % and that with MTCC 2522 is 24.0 %. The DNA G+C content of the strain is 75.3 mol%. The above data in combination with the phenotypic distinctiveness of K07-05 clearly indicate that the strain represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is K07-05 (=MTCC 7020=DSM 44905=JCM 13326).
