Abstract

Among a large collection of Taiwanese soil isolates, a novel Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming, yellow-pigmented bacterial strain, Soil-3-27, was isolated from farmland soil in Wu-Feng, Taiwan. The isolate was subjected to a polyphasic study including 16S rRNA gene sequencing, DNA–DNA hybridization, fatty acid analysis and comparative phenotypic characterization. The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that the organism belongs to the genus . The organism contains menaquinone MK-6 as the predominant isoprenoid quinone and 15 : 0 iso (43 %), 17 : 1 iso9 (17.5 %) and 17 : 0 iso 3-OH (16.6 %) as the major fatty acids. Phylogenetically, the closest relatives of strain Soil-3-27 are , and with 96.7–97.2 % sequence similarity. DNA–DNA hybridization showed relatedness values of 8.5–24.2 % with these species. The DNA G+C content is 36.8 mol%. Strain Soil-3-27 is clearly distinguishable from other species and represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is strain Soil-3-27 (=BCRC 17412=IAM 15317=LMG 23355).
