Abstract

A motile, Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain JS11-7, was isolated from forest soil from Halla Mountain, Jeju Island, Korea. It grew optimally at 28 °C, pH 6–7 and in the presence of 0–2 % (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain JS11-7 belongs to the family , with as its closest relative (95.0 % similarity). It contained Q-8 as the predominant quinone and summed feature 3 (comprising iso-C 2-OH and/or C 6), C and C 7 as the major fatty acids. The DNA G+C content was 62 mol%. On the basis of phenotypic and genotypic characteristics and the results of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain JS11-7 represents a novel genus and species, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type species is and the type strain is JS11-7 (=KACC 11608=DSM 18519).
