Abstract

A Gram-positive, rod-shaped, non-motile bacterium, designated strain wged11, was isolated from the root of ginseng, and its taxonomic position was established using a polyphasic approach. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that this organism formed a robust clade with recognized species of the genus . Strain wged11 was characterized by a high content of -cyclohexylundecanoic and anteiso- and iso-branched saturated fatty acids, MK-11 as the major menaquinone and -2,4-diaminobutyric acid in its cell-wall peptidoglycan. The DNA G+C content of strain wged11 was 66.4 mol%. Levels of similarity between the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain wged11 and those of the type strains of other members of the genus ranged from 94.7 to 97.6 %. The mean level of DNA–DNA relatedness between strain wged11 and DSM 15202, its nearest phylogenetic neighbour, was 35.3 %. Based on these findings, strain wged11 (=CGMCC 4.3491=JCM 13908) is proposed as the type strain of a novel species of the genus , sp. nov.
