Abstract

A Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile, mesophilic strain, djl-6, able to degrade carbendazim, was isolated from a carbendazim-contaminated soil sample from Jiangsu province, China. The taxonomic position of this isolate was analysed by using a polyphasic approach. Chemotaxonomic analysis including peptidoglycan type, diagnostic sugar composition, fatty acid profile, menaquinones, polar lipids and mycolic acids showed that the characteristics of strain djl-6 were in good agreement with those of the genus . DNA–DNA hybridization showed that it had low genomic relatedness with DSM 44587 (31.8 %), DSM 43066 (23.8 %) and DSM 43954 (17.7 %), the three type strains to which strain djl-6 was most closely related based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis (99.78, 99.25 and 98.91 % similarity, respectively). Based on the phenotypic properties and DNA–DNA hybridization data, strain djl-6 (=CGMCC 1.6580 =KCTC 19205) is proposed as the type strain of a novel species, sp. nov.
