Abstract

A Gram-negative, almost straight, rod-shaped, non-motile bacterium, designated CL-GP79, was isolated from a highly eutrophic pond located within the campus of Seoul National University, Korea. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing showed that strain CL-GP79 belongs to the family , with as its closest relative (similarity of 95.7 %). The cellular fatty acids consist mainly of C 5 (mean±, 26.9±10.8 %), iso-C 2-OH and/or C 7 (19.2±2.3 %) and iso-C (12.1±1.3 %). The DNA G+C content was found to be 38.3 mol%. Phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analyses indicated that strain CL-GP79 could be assigned to the genus , but could be distinguished from . The strain CL-GP79 therefore represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with CL-GP79 (=KCCM 42271=JCM 13398) as the type strain.
