Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, rod-shaped, non-flagellated, mesophilic, yellow-pigmented, aerobic bacterium, designated strain KIS20-3, was isolated from a soil sample of Baengnyeong Island in Onjin county, Republic of Korea. According to 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, the isolate showed highest similarities with HY-50R (94.5 %), THYL-44 (94.2 %) and JCN-23 (93.7 %). The neighbour-joining tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain KIS20-3 formed a subcluster with members of the genus , and this subcluster was closely related to members of the genera , and within the family . The major fatty acids of strain KIS20-3 were iso-C, iso-C 3-OH and iso-C G, and the predominant isoprenoid quinone was menaquinone 7. The polar lipid profile comprised large amounts of phosphatidylethanolamine and one unknown polar lipid, and moderate or small amounts of four unknown aminophospholipids, two unknown aminolipids, three unknown lipids and one unknown phospholipid. The G+C content of the DNA of strain KIS20-3 was 55.7 mol%. On the basis of the results of the polyphasic characterization presented in this study, it is concluded that strain KIS20-3 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is KIS20-3 ( = KACC 17319 = JCM 19937).
