Abstract

A Gram-negative, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain AKS 1, was isolated from a desert soil sample collected from Akesu, XinJiang Province, China. A taxonomic study, including phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences and phenotypic characteristics, was performed on the novel isolate. The predominant menaquinone of strain AKS 1 was MK-7. The major fatty acids included i-C, ai-C B/i-C I and i-C 3-OH. The G+C content of the DNA was 51.4 mol%. Based on the results of phenotypic and genotypic characteristics, strain AKS 1 should be assigned as representing a novel species of the genus , for which the name is proposed. The type strain is AKS 1 (=KCTC 12758=CCTCC AB 206086).
