Abstract

A Gram-negative, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped, motile bacterium, strain Ko06, was isolated from soil from a ginseng field in South Korea and was characterized in order to determine its taxonomic position. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain Ko06 belongs to the , and the highest levels of sequence similarity were with LMG 21746 (98.4 %), LMG 21737 (97.7 %), A50-7-3 (96.5 %) and SGM-6 (95.8 %). Chemotaxonomic data revealed that strain Ko06 possesses ubiquinone Q-8 and that the predominant fatty acids are C iso, C iso and C iso 3-OH, all of which corroborated assignment of the strain to the genus . The results of DNA–DNA hybridization and physiological and biochemical tests clearly demonstrated that strain Ko06 represents a distinct species. On the basis of these data, strain Ko06 (=KCTC 12540=NBRC 101155) should be classified as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
