Abstract

Three Gram-stain negative, aerobic, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterial strains, Y1R2-4, Y3R2-3 and DC2N1-10, isolated from two crater lakes of the Daxinganling Mountains, northern China, were studied to determine their taxonomic position. They grew at 4–30 °C (optimally at 20–25 °C), at pH 6.0–7.5 (optimally at pH 7.0) and in the presence of 0–0.5 % (w/v) NaCl. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, these strains showed 95.3–96.6 % similarity to members of the genus , including DSM 5888, WT-MW11, ZS3-33 and HDW-19. All strains contained Q-10 as the predominant ubiquinone and C 7 as the major fatty acid. The main polar lipids for strains Y1R2-4 and Y3R2-3 were phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylcholine, one unidentified aminophospholipid, one unidentified aminolipid, three unidentified phospholipids and two unidentified lipids, and those for strain DC2N1-10 were phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylcholine, one unidentified aminophospholipid, one unidentified aminolipid, one unidentified phospholipid and several unidentified lipids. The DNA G+C contents of strains Y1R2-4, Y3R2-3 and DC2N1-10 were 61.9, 61.0 and 60.0 mol%, respectively. In addition, strain Y1R2-4 shared less than 50 % DNA–DNA relatedness to strain DC2N1-10. Based on these differences in genetic, physiological and chemotaxonomic properties, strains Y1R2-4, Y3R2-3 and DC2N1-10 were considered to represent two novel species of the genus , for which the names sp. nov. (type strain Y1R2-4=CGMCC1.14435=KCTC 52039) and sp. nov. (type strain DC2N1-10=CGMCC1.14433=KCTC 52040) are proposed.
