Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, short rod-shaped and motile bacterial strain, designated M48, was isolated from a soil sample contaminated with chloroethylene compounds. Strain M48 was able to biodegrade methanol as a sole carbon source. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequences, strain M48 was closely related to IPL18, DS-56, 9b and Cr7-05, showing sequence similarities of 96.0, 95.8, 95.6 and 95.5 %, respectively. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain M48 formed a distinct lineage within the family of the class . Strain M48 contains Q-10 as the predominant ubiquinone, and C 7c 11-metyl, C, C cyclo 8c and C 7c as the major fatty acids. The polar lipid profile includes diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine and dimannosyldiacylglycerol. The DNA G+C content of strain M48 was 60.3 mol%. Based on phenotypic, phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic data, strain M48 represents a novel species of a new genus within the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of the type species is M48 ( = KEMB 224-262 = JCM 30821).
