Abstract

A Gram-negative, motile, rod-shaped, -like bacterial strain, ISL-52, was isolated from a marine solar saltern of the Yellow Sea in Korea and was subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic investigation. Strain ISL-52 grew optimally at pH 7.0–8.0 and at 30–37 °C. It contained Q-8 as the predominant ubiquinone. The major fatty acids (>10 % of total fatty acids) were iso-C, iso-C and iso-C 9. The DNA G+C content was 53.9 mol%. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain ISL-52 fell within the genus , joining the type strain of at a bootstrap resampling value of 100 %. Strain ISL-52 exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of 94.9–96.7 % with respect to the type strains of eight recognized species. The differential phenotypic properties of ISL-52, together with its phylogenetic distinctiveness, demonstrated that this strain is distinguishable from the recognized species. On the basis of phenotypic, phylogenetic and genetic data, therefore, strain ISL-52 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is ISL-52 (=KCTC 12971=CCUG 54359).
