Abstract

A Gram-negative, strictly aerobic, rod-shaped, non-motile, non-spore-forming bacterial strain, designated Gsoil 104, was isolated from a soil sample from a ginseng field in Pocheon Province (South Korea) and was characterized taxonomically by using a polyphasic approach. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities, strain Gsoil 104 was shown to belong to the family , being related to DSM 12126 (97.0 %), LMG 22862 (96.9 %), DSM 14825 (96.8 %) and DSM 2366 (96.6 %). The phylogenetic distance from any other species with a validly published name was greater than 3.4 % (i.e. <96.6 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). DNA–DNA hybridization experiments showed that values for DNA–DNA relatedness between strain Gsoil 104 and its phylogenetically closest neighbours were below 37 %. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 43.6 mol%. The predominant respiratory quinone was MK-7. The major fatty acids were C 7, iso-C, C, iso-C 3-OH and iso-C 2-OH. These chemotaxonomic data support the affiliation of strain Gsoil 104 to the genus . On the basis of its phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness, strain Gsoil 104 represents a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Gsoil 104 (=KCTC 12576=LMG 23399).
