Abstract

A novel member of was isolated from a microbial mat growing on a geothermally heated dead tree trunk in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park (HI, USA). The rod-shaped, Gram-negative capsulated cells of strain PMMR2 were non-motile and catalase and oxidase negative. Growth occurred aerobically from 15 to 55 °C (optimum, 40 °C) and at pH values from 4.5 to 7.0 (optimum, 6.5). A limited range of sugars and organic acids supported growth. However, results of a genomic analysis suggested that various polysaccharides might be hydrolysed as carbon sources, and evidence for pectin degradation was observed in liquid cultures. A genomic analysis also revealed genes for a Group 1f uptake hydrogenase; assays with liquid cultures confirmed hydrogen consumption, including uptake at sub-atmospheric concentrations. Nitrate was not dissimilated to nitrite. Major membrane fatty acids included iso-C and iso-C. The G+C content was 57.2mol%. A comparative genome analysis revealed an average nucleotide identity of 72.2 % between PMMR2 and its nearest cultured phylogenetic neighbour, ATCC 51196 (=JCM 7670); analysis of the 16S rRNA gene revealed a 96.8 % sequence identity with ATCC 51196. These results and other phenotypic differences indicated that strain PMMR2 represents a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain, PMMR2 (=DSM 27394=LMG 28340), is the second formal addition to the genus .
