Abstract

A Gram-negative, non-spore-forming, non-motile, rod-shaped, red-pigmented strain, designated YIM 007, was found as a contaminant on an agar plate in the laboratory of Yunnan Institute of Microbiology, China. The optimum growth pH and temperature for the isolate were 7.0–7.5 and 30 °C, respectively. The predominant respiratory quinone was MK-8. The polar lipid profile consisted mainly of various unknown phosphoglycolipids and glycolipids. The major cellular fatty acids were C 7, C, C and C 8. -Ornithine was detected in its peptidoglycan. The DNA G+C content was 64.1 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain YIM 007 showed 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity levels of 86.8–92.1 % to the other described species. Based on the high 16S rRNA gene sequence divergence and phenotypic differences, it is proposed that the unknown strain should be classified as a novel species in the genus with the name sp. nov. The type strain is YIM 007 (=KCTC 3962=DSM 17005).
