Abstract

A Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, rod-shaped bacterial strain (Mok-17) was isolated from marine sediment sampled in Okinawa Island, Japan. Based on analysis of the almost complete sequence of its 16S rRNA gene, strain Mok-17 was found to belong to the family . Strain Mok-17 showed highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity (91 %) to and . In a phylogenetic tree based on the 16S rRNA gene, strain Mok-17 formed a deep branch distinct from all other organisms in the family . The major quinone was MK-6 and the major fatty acids were iso-15 : 0, iso-15 : 1, iso-17 : 0 3-OH and summed feature 3 (16 : 17 and/or iso-15 : 0 2-OH). The DNA G+C content was 37 mol%. The phylogenetic distance to the type strains of all recognized species in the family and the phenotypic properties of strain Mok-17 supported its classification as representing a novel species in a new genus, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Mok-17 (=NBRC 101624=CIP 109219).
