Abstract

The actinobacterial strain YIM 70185 was isolated from a saline soil sample collected from Qinghai province, north-west China, and subjected to a taxonomic investigation. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed 93.5–96.4 % similarity to members of related genera in the family . In the phylogenetic dendrogram based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain YIM 70185 formed a separate clade next to the genera and within the family . The peptidoglycan type was A4, -lys–-ala–-Glu. Cell-wall sugars contained glucose and tyvelose. The polar lipids were phosphatidylglycerol, diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylinositol, an unknown phospholipid and an unknown glycolipid. The menaquinones were MK-9, MK-10 and MK-8 (molar ratio 5 : 2 : 1). The major fatty acids were ai-C and i-C and the DNA GC content was 66.5 mol%. These chemotaxonomic profiles supported the assignment of strain YIM 70185 to a novel genus within the family . The name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is YIM 70185 (=DSM 17364=KCTC 19085).
