Abstract

A Gram-negative, yellow-coloured, chemoheterotrophic, non-motile, strictly aerobic, rod-shaped bacterium, designated IMCC1914, was isolated from coastal surface seawater of the Yellow Sea, Korea. The temperature, pH and NaCl ranges for growth were 3–37 °C, pH 8.0–11.0 and 0.5–4.0 %. The DNA G+C content of the strain was 38.1 mol% and the major cellular fatty acids were iso-C (32.1 %), iso-C (20.6 %) and iso-C 3-OH (7.8 %). Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain IMCC1914 was related most closely to SMK-12, with a sequence similarity of 96.2 %. On the basis of phylogenetic data and several distinct phenotypic characteristics, strain IMCC1914 (=KCCM 42380 =NBRC 102040) could be assigned to the genus as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. In addition, an emended description of the genus is presented.
