Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, crescent-shaped, non-motile, aerobic bacterium was isolated from a saltern at Nari along the Bhavnagar coast, Gujarat, India. The strain designated JC344 was oxidase- and catalase-positive. The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and sequence comparison data indicated that JC344 represented a member of the genus Lunatimonas and was closely related to the only species of the genus, Lunatimonas lonarensis AK24 (95.5 %). The DNA G+C content of JC344 was 43 mol%. JC344 has phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and four unidentified polar lipids. MK-7 is the only respiratory quinone. The major (>10 %) fatty acids of strain JC344 are iso-C15 : 0, anteiso-C15 : 0 and summed feature 9 (iso-C17 : 1ω9c and/or C16 : 0 10-methyl). On the basis of physiological, genotypic, phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic analyses, we conclude that JC344 represents a novel species of the genus Lunatimonas , for which the name Lunatimonas salinarum sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is JC344 (=KCTC 42988=LMG 29259).
