Abstract

An obligately aerobic, Gram-negative, non-spore-forming, non-motile, spherical bacterium, designated strain 04OKA010-24, was isolated from seawater surrounding the hard coral L., collected at Majanohama, Akajima, Japan, and was subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Phylogenetic analyses based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that the new strain represented a member of the phylum ‘’ and shared 84–95 % sequence similarity with cultivated strains of ‘’ subdivision 4. Amino acid analysis of the cell-wall hydrolysate indicated the absence of muramic acid and diaminopimelic acid, which suggested that the strain did not contain peptidoglycan in the cell wall. The G+C content of the DNA was 53.9 mol%. MK-7 was the major menaquinone and C, C 9 and C were the major fatty acids. On the basis of these data, it was concluded that strain 04OKA010-24 represents a novel species in a new genus in subdivision 4 of the phylum ‘’, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is 04OKA010-24 (=MBIC06463=IAM 15411=KCTC 12865).
