Abstract

A novel mesophilic, Gram-positive, cream- to pale yellow-pigmented, aerobic bacterium, designated MSL-15, was isolated from a soil sample collected from Bigeum Island, South Korea. The cells were catalase-positive, motile and irregular rods. The diamino acid content of the cell-wall peptidoglycan was determined to be 2,4-diaminobutyric acid. Strain MSL-15 grew well between 20 and 28 °C, with optimum growth occurring at 25–28 °C. The major fatty acids were anteiso-C, iso-C, anteiso-C and iso-C. The genomic DNA G+C content was 70.0 mol%. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain MSL-15 was associated with the genus and exhibited 96.6 % sequence similarity to JCM 13925 and 94.8 % similarity to JCM 1463. Phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data revealed that strain MSL-15 represents a novel species within the genus , for which the name is proposed. The type strain is MSL-15 (=DSM 19267=KCTC 19270).
