Abstract

Two strains of Gram-stain-positive, aerobic, spore-forming and rod-shaped bacteria, designated U13 and U14, were isolated from soil of the Ukraine. Comparative analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that these strains belong to the genus , with the highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with Gsoil 1105 (95.48 % and 95.49 %, respectively). Strains U13 and U14 had iso-C and summed features 1 and 4 as the main fatty acids, and were able to grow at pH ranging from pH 5.0 to 9.0 (optimum pH 6.0–7.0), temperatures ranging from 25 to 42 °C (optimum 28–37 °C) and with 0–1 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum 0 %, w/v) on R2A agar medium. Chemotaxonomic data revealed that the cell-wall peptidoglycan type of the two strains was type A1γ (-diaminopimelic acid). On the basis of the evidence from this study, strains U13 and U14 represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is U13 ( = KEMB 7305-100 = JCM 19866) and a second strain is U14 ( = KEMB 7305-101 = JCM 19867).
