Abstract

A novel bacterial strain designated Gsoil 616 was isolated from a soil sample of a ginseng field in Pocheon province (South Korea) and was characterized taxonomically by using a polyphasic approach. The isolate was Gram-positive, strictly aerobic, non-motile, non-spore-forming and rod- or coccoid-shaped. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the isolate belongs to the genus in the family but was clearly separated from established species of this genus. The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities between strain Gsoil 616 and the type strains of species with validly published names ranged from 91.8 to 96.1 %. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 73 mol%. Phenotypic and chemotaxonomic data [major menaquinone MK-8(H) and major fatty acid iso-C] supported the affiliation of strain Gsoil 616 to the genus . However, the results of physiological and biochemical tests allowed phenotypic differentiation of the isolate from other species. Therefore, strain Gsoil 616 represented a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Gsoil 616 (=KCTC 19187 =DSM 18660).
