Abstract

A taxonomic study was carried out on a Gram-staining-negative bacterium, strain SF-12, isolated from an unidentified starfish living in Sanya, PR China. Cells of SF-12 were non-spore-forming rods, 0.5–0.8 µm wide, 2.2–2.5 µm long and motile by means of flagella. SF-12 was facultatively anaerobic, heterotrophic, oxidase- and catalase-positive. Growth of SF-12 occurred at 15–38 °C (optimum, 30 °C), at pH 6.5–8.5 (optimum, pH 7.0), and in the presence of 2.0–7.0 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum, 3.0–4.0 %). The predominant fatty acids of SF-12 were Cω7 and/or Cω6. Ubiquinone 10 was the sole respiratory quinone of SF-12. The major polar lipids of SF-12 were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, three unknown aminolipids, and seven unknown phospholipids. The DNA G+C content was 61 mol%. SF-12 showed the highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to W11-2B (96.06 %), followed by CC-AMHB-3 (96.02 %), SMK-117 (96.0 %), CZ-AM5 (95.92 %), KU5D5 (95.92 %) and other species of the family (<95.9 %). However, phylogenetic trees based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that SF-12 formed a lineage with members of the genus in the trees. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analyses, SF-12 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is SF-12 (=MCCC 1K01154=KCTC 42911).
