Abstract

A phenanthrene- and citronellol-degrading bacterium, strain RLD-1, was isolated from the fly ash dumping site of a thermal power plant in Delhi, India. The 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that this strain belongs to the genus ; high levels of sequence similarity were found with respect to DSM 50332 (98.9 %), DSM 16612 (97.6 %) and DSM 14399 (97.5 %). Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences placed the strain within the clade represented by these three strains. Strain RLD-1 showed low levels of DNA–DNA hybridization with respect to DSM 50332 (36 %), DSM 16612 (4 %) and (13.7 %). Strain RLD-1 can also be distinguished from these three strains on the basis of several biochemical and physiological attributes. The novel strain contained high levels of cellular fatty acids 18 : 17, 16 : 0 and 16 : 17, along with 10 : 0 3-OH and 12 : 0 3-OH. Thus, strain RLD-1 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RLD-1 (=MTCC 7601=CCM 7361).
