Abstract

A micro-organism, DCY12, comprising Gram-negative, non-motile, pale-yellow rods was isolated from soil from a ginseng field in South Korea and was investigated to determine its taxonomic status. It grew optimally at 30 °C and at pH 7.0, the G+C content of its DNA was 40.5 mol%, the major components of the fatty acid profile were C and C and the major ubiquinone was Q-8. A phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed that the novel isolate was most closely related to AP103 (89.2 %), Soe1 (88.8 %) and ATCC 10145 (83.2 %). The phenotypic, physiological, metabolic and phylogenetic properties of DCY12 suggest that it represents a novel genus (class ) and species, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is DCY12 (=KCTC 12834 =LMG 24014).
