Abstract

A cellulose-decomposing bacterium, strain JB, was isolated from sediments along the Qijiang River, Zhongshan City, China. Results of morphological, biochemical and chemotaxonomic characterization and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain JB belonged to the genus . Insertion sequence-PCR fingerprinting patterns, DNA base ratio analysis and DNA–DNA hybridization data showed that strain JB differed from recognized species of the genus . Based on polyphasic analysis, strain JB represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is JB (=LMG 23926=CGMCC 1.6508=DSM 18832).
