Abstract

A novel anaerobic, long-chain alkene-degrading, sulfate-reducing bacterium, strain LM2801, was isolated from brackish sediment of a wastewater decantation facility of an oil refinery (Berre lagoon, France). Cells of strain LM2801 were Gram-negative, motile, slightly curved or vibrioid rods. Its optimum growth conditions were 30–36 °C, 6–10 g NaCl l and pH 7.5. Strain LM2801 incompletely oxidized long-chain alkenes (from C to C) and fatty acids (C to C). The DNA G+C content was 45.5 mol%. Sequence analyses of the 16S rRNA and genes indicated that the strain was a member of the family within the . This novel isolate possesses phenotypic and phylogenetic traits that do not allow its classification as a member of any previously described genus. Therefore, strain LM2801 is described as a member of a new genus, gen. nov., of which sp. nov. is the type species. The type strain of is LM2801 (=DSM 18843 =JCM 14469).
