Abstract

A novel marine bacterial strain, designated JAMH 043, was isolated from cold-seep sediment in Sagami Bay, Japan. Cells were Gram-stain-negative, rod-shaped, non-motile and aerobic chemo-organotrophs. The isolate grew optimally at 25 °C, at pH 7.0–7.5 and with 3 % (w/v) NaCl. The major respiratory quinone was ubiquinone-10 (Q-10). The predominant fatty acid was Cω7. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, the isolated strain was closely affiliated to members of the genus in the class , and 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of the novel isolate with the type strain of its closest related species, JC2049, was 98.4 %. The DNA G+C content of the novel strain was 58.0 mol%. The hybridization values for DNA–DNA relatedness between strain JAMH 043 and reference strains belonging to the genus were less than 14.1 ± 2.2 %. Based on differences in taxonomic characteristics, the isolated strain represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is JAMH 043 ( = JCM 30900 = DSM 100673).
