Abstract

A Gram-negative, strictly aerobic, short rod-shaped, non-motile bacterial strain designated 4M24 was isolated from cotton-waste compost. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain 4M24 revealed that it is a member of the genus , sharing 88.5–94.5 % sequence similarity with type strains of the genus and being most closely related to TR6-04 (94.5 % sequence similarity) and ATCC 33299 (92.2 % similarity). The major fatty acids of strain 4M24 grown on trypticase soy agar medium were summed feature 3 (iso-C 2-OH and/or C 7; 37.5 %), iso-C (29.5 %) and iso-C 3-OH (19.7 %). The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 42.3 mol%. On the basis of phenotypic and genotypic characteristics, strain 4M24 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 4M24 (=KACC 11313=DSM 18850).
