Abstract

A Gram-positive, endospore-forming bacterium, designated strain BT080, was isolated from a soil sample in Jeju, Korea. Cells of the isolate were strictly aerobic rods that were motile by means of peritrichous flagella. The strain grew optimally at 30–33 °C and pH 5.5–6.5. Chemotaxonomic data (major isoprenoid quinone, MK-7; DNA G+C content, 43.3 mol%; major fatty acids, anteiso-C, iso-C, iso-C and iso-C) supported the affiliation of the isolate to the genus . Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses showed that strain BT080 formed a distinct phyletic line within the genus . The levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with respect to related species were below 96.4 %. On the basis of physiological, biochemical and phylogenetic properties, strain BT080 represents a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is BT080 (=KCTC 13934=DSM 17871).
