Abstract

A yellow-coloured bacterial strain, designated BP-5, was isolated from a water sample of a cold spring located in the Hsinchu area of northern Taiwan. Cells of the strain were Gram-negative, non-spore-forming rods with a polar flagellum. The isolate was able to grow at 15–42 °C, 0–1 % NaCl and pH 6–8. The predominant fatty acids were summed feature 3 (C 7 and/or iso-C 2-OH), C and C 7. The major respiratory quinone was ubiquinone 8. The DNA G+C content was 63.2 mol%. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that strain BP-5 belonged to the class and was a member of the family . Its closest phylogenetic neighbours were E4FC31 (95.0 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity), PRAA4-1 (95.0 %), ATCC 12472 (94.3 %), ATCC 19706 (93.8 %) and TRO-001DR8 (93.7 %). On the basis of the evidence from this polyphasic study, strain BP-5 is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is BP-5 (=BCRC 17727 =LMG 24211).
