Abstract

Strain DCY16, a Gram-positive, spore-forming, rod-shaped, motile bacterium, was isolated from soil and characterized in order to determine its taxonomic position. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain DCY16 belonged to the genus ; highest sequence similarities were with JCM 9077 (94.4 %), WN9 (94.4 %), DSM 14203 (94.2 %), KCTC 3748 (92.8 %) and KCTC 10016BP (92.4 %). Chemotaxonomic data revealed that strain DCY16 possessed menaquinone MK-7 and the predominant fatty acids were C anteiso, C anteiso, C and C iso. The DNA G+C content of strain DCY16 was 50.9 mol%. Results of physiological and biochemical tests clearly demonstrated that strain DCY16 represents a distinct species. Based on these data, DCY16 (=KCTC 13141 =JCM 14928) should be classified as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
