Abstract

A novel Gram-positive bacterium, strain 40, was isolated in the course of identifying bacteria from infective juveniles of the entomopathogenic nematode . Based on 16S rRNA gene analysis, strain 40 was found to be related to the type strains of recognized species of the genus , family . The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of strain 40 and IAM 14851, LMG 23118, LMG 23117, DSM 8803, CIP 108389 and CIP 108388, respectively, were 97.3, 97.5, 97.6, 97.6, 97.6 and 98.5 %. Chemotaxonomic analysis also supported the affiliation of strain 40 to the genus : the major menaquinone was MK-11, the peptidoglycan cross-linkage was of the B-type, the cell wall diamino acid was -diaminobutyric acid and the major fatty acids were anteiso-C (42 %), anteiso-C (34 %) and iso-C (16 %). Based upon the biochemical and genomic analyses, strain 40 is sufficiently distinct from the type strains of recognized species to warrant the description of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is strain 40 (=DSM 17402=CIP 108831).
