Abstract

One strain of a novel genus and species of the order Planctomycetes , designated FC18, was isolated from the epiphytic community of Fucusspiralis. This strain was non-pigmented in medium M13 but was slightly pink pigmented on medium M14, containing four-fold the levels of glucose, peptone and yeast extract of M13. The organism was primarily spherical, with unicellular non-motile forms and rosettes. The optimal temperature for growth was about 25 °C and the optimal pH was 7.5. FC18 was chemoorganotrophic and aerobic. Several sugars, polyols and amino acids were assimilated. The major fatty acids were C18 : 1ω9c, C14 : 0 and C16 : 0. The major polar lipids were phosphatidylglycerol (PG) and two unknown lipids. Menaquinone 5 (MK-5) was the main respiratory quinone, but MK-6 was also present. The results of the 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis confirmed the affiliation of this organism to the order Planctomycetales , family Planctomycetaceae , with Blastopirellula marina as the closest relative with only 86 % sequence similarity. On the basis of physiological, biochemical and chemotaxonomic characteristics we propose that FC18(=LMG 29748=DSM 26290) represents a novel species of a novel genus of the family Planctomycetaceae for which we propose the name Mariniblastusfucicola gen. nov., sp. nov.
