Abstract

A novel bacterium designated Mok-1-85 was isolated from a marine sediment sample collected from Okinawa Island, Japan. Cells of strain Mok-1-85 stained Gram-negative, were catalase- and oxidase-positive and were non-motile. In a neighbour-joining tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences, the novel strain clustered with the genus , a member of the family ‘’. The novel isolate shared low 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities (≤86 %) with the members of the genus and other related taxa. The major isoprenoid quinone was MK-7 and the predominant fatty acids of this organism were iso-C, C 5 and C 3-OH. The G+C content of the DNA was 38 mol%. Combined phylogenetic and physiological data showed that strain Mok-1-85 represents a novel genus and species for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Mok-1-85 (=NBRC 101625=KCTC 12970=CIP 109411).
