Abstract

A Gram-negative, aerobic, slightly halophilic, non-motile and coccoid- or rod-shaped bacterial strain, SW-277, was isolated from seawater, Korea, and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Strain SW-277 was catalase- and oxidase-positive and grew optimally at pH 7.0–8.0 and 37 °C in the presence of 2 % (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain SW-277 belongs to the as part of the clade comprising the genera and with a bootstrap resampling value of 72.5 %. 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values between strain SW-277 and members of the genera and were between 93.8 and 94.7 %. Strain SW-277 contained Q-10 as the predominant ubiquinone and C 7 and C as the major fatty acids. The DNA G+C content was 59.7 mol%. Strain SW-277 could be distinguished from members of the phylogenetically related genera and by phenotypic differences and low 16S rRNA gene similarity values. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic, genotypic and phylogenetic data, strain SW-277 (=KCTC 12735=JCM 13604) should be classified as a representative of a novel species in a new genus, gen. nov., sp. nov.
