Abstract

A bacterial strain, designated TTM-43, was isolated from a water sample taken from the Caohu River in Taiwan and characterized using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Cells of strain TTM-43 were Gram-stain-negative, strictly aerobic, motile by gliding, rod-shaped and surrounded by a thick capsule. The strain formed bright-yellow colonies. Growth occurred at 15–30 °C (optimum, 20 °C), at pH 5–9 (optimum, pH 6) and with 0–0.3 % NaCl (optimum growth in the absence of added NaCl). Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain TTM-43 belonged to the genus and was most closely related to R2A1-13, with 97.8 % sequence similarity. Strain TTM-43 contained iso-C (24.9 %), iso-C G (12.6 %), summed feature 9 (iso-Cω9 and/or 10-methyl C; 12.2 %), iso-C 3-OH (10.9 %), iso-C 3-OH (7.3 %) and iso-C (6.7 %) as the predominant fatty acids. The major isoprenoid quinone was MK-6. The polar lipid profile consisted of phosphatidylethanolamine and several uncharacterized aminophospholipids and phospholipids. The major polyamine was homospermidine. The genomic DNA G+C content of strain TTM-43 was 31 mol%. DNA–DNA relatedness of strain TTM-43 with respect to type strains of recognized species of the genus was less than 70 %. On the basis of phylogenetic inference and phenotypic data, strain TTM-43 should be assigned to a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is presented. The type strain is TTM-43 ( = BCRC 80913 = KCTC 42744 = LMG 29004).
