Abstract

Strain DCY14, a Gram-negative, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped, non-motile bacterium, was isolated from soil from a ginseng field in Korea and was characterized in order to determine its taxonomic position. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain DCY14 belongs to the family , the highest degree of sequence similarity being found with respect to Jip14 (95.8 %). Chemotaxonomic data revealed that strain DCY14 possesses MK-7 as the major menaquinone. The major fatty acids present were anteiso-C, iso-C, iso-C 3-OH and summed feature 4 (C 7/iso-C 2-OH). The results of physiological and biochemical tests clearly demonstrated that strain DCY14 represents a distinct species. On the basis of these data, DCY14 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is DCY14 (=KCTC 12984 =LMG 24069).
