Abstract

A light-orange, aerobic bacterium, strain UST040201-001, that degrades casein, gelatin and Tween 20, was isolated in February 2004 from a sand-filtered seawater sample from Port Shelter, Hong Kong SAR, China. The strain possessed menaquinone-6 and its 16S rRNA gene sequence shared only 90.1 % similarity with that of IC156. Phylogenetic analysis showed that UST040201-001 formed a distinct lineage within the family . Its ecophysiological and biochemical characteristics suggest that this strain represents a novel genus and species within the phylum . The name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is UST040201-001 (=NRRL B-41434=JCM 13821).
