Abstract

A yellow-pigmented, Gram-negative, aerobic bacterial strain comprising rod-shaped cells devoid of flagellar and gliding motility, designated strain JC2129, was isolated from tidal flat sediment of Dongmak on Ganghwa Island, South Korea. Results from a 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that the isolate belonged to the family ; the highest level of nucleotide sequence similarity (91.9 %) occurred with DSW-5. The predominant cellular fatty acids were iso-C (19.8 %), iso-C G (14.0 %), iso-C 3-OH (13.7 %) and iso-C (6.4 %). Flexirubin-type pigments were absent. The major isoprenoid quinone was MK-6. The DNA G+C content was 43–45 mol%. Data from a polyphasic taxonomy study suggested that the isolate represents a novel genus and species in the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is JC2129 (=KCTC 12704 =JCM 14002).
