Abstract

A Gram-negative, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterial strain, designated DS-27, was isolated from a soil sample, and its taxonomic position was investigated by using a polyphasic approach. The organism grew optimally at 30 °C and in the presence of 0–0.5 % (w/v) NaCl. Strain DS-27 contained MK-7 as the predominant menaquinone and iso-C, C 7 and/or iso-C 2-OH and iso-C 3-OH as the major fatty acids. The DNA G+C content was 39.7 mol%. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain DS-27 is most closely related to the genus of the family . Similarity values between the 16S rRNA gene sequences of strain DS-27 and the type strains of recognized species ranged from 90.6 to 95.5 %. Differential phenotypic properties, together with the phylogenetic distinctiveness, were sufficient to categorize strain DS-27 as representing a species that is separate from recognized species. On the basis of its phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness, strain DS-27 (=KCTC 12559=CIP 108922) was classified in the genus as a member of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
