Abstract

A Gram-staining negative, reddish-pink, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterial strain designated W29, was isolated from a hexachlorocyclohexane-contaminated dumpsite located in the northern part of India at Ummari Village, Lucknow. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain W29 formed a lineage within the genus and exhibited highest sequence similarity to MS7 (98.8 %), followed by AC-74 (97.1 %). The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain W29 and other species of the genus ranged from 93.3–98.8 %. The DNA–DNA relatedness between strain W29 and MS7 was 47 % and with other related strains was found to be less than 45 %, confirming strain W29 represents a novel species. The DNA G+C content of strain W29 was 46.2 mol%. Strain W29 was oxidase- and catalase-positive. The major fatty acids (>10 %) of strain W29 were iso-C, summed feature 9 (comprising 10-methyl C and/or iso-Cω9) and summed feature 3 (comprising Cω6 and/or Cω7). The respiratory quinone was MK-7. The polar lipid profile consisted of phosphatidylethanolamine, diphosphatidylglycerol, two unidentified aminolipids, an unidentified aminophospholipid, an unidentified phospholipid and unidentified lipids. On the basis of the results obtained from DNA–DNA hybridization, and biochemical and physiological tests in this study, strain W29 represents a novel species of the genus for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is W29 (=KCTC 42940=MCC 2876=DSM 100160).
