Abstract

An aerobic, yellow-pigmented, Gram-negative bacterium, designated strain S13, was isolated from freshwater sediment of Taihu Lake in central China. The taxonomy of strain S13 was studied by using phenotypic and phylogenetic methods. Cells of strain S13 were rod-shaped, non-motile and with a size range of 0·35–0·55×1·5–2·5 μm. The nearly complete 16S rRNA gene of strain S13 was amplified and sequenced. A search and phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity showed that strain S13 was related to members of the genus , with the highest sequence similarity of 93·8 % to (ATCC 23463). Cells contained menaquinone-6 (MK-6) as the major respiratory quinone and the genomic DNA G+C content was 41 mol%. The major fatty acids were iso-C (28·2 %) and iso-C 9 (19·0 %). It is proposed that S13 (=CGMCC 1.3801=JCM 13331) represents the type strain of a novel species, sp. nov.
