Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic bacterial strain, designated strain m18, was isolated from a sea-tidal flat in South Korea. Cells were non-motile short rods showing oxidase and catalase activities. Growth of m18 was observed at 10–40 °C (optimum, 30 °C), pH 5.5–10.0 (optimum, pH 7.0) and 0.5–7.0 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum, 3.0 %). The major respiratory quinone was ubiquinone-10 and the major fatty acids of were summed feature 8 (comprising Cω7/Cω6) and C. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 56.7 mol%. Phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, an unidentified phospholipid, an unidentified aminolipid and four unidentified lipids were detected in m18. The results of phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that m18 formed a tight phyletic lineage with the members of the genus . Strain m18 was most closely related to H-12, 6Alg 255 and 2-3 with 98.9, 96.1 and 95.5 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities, respectively. The DNA–DNA hybridization value between m18 and the type strain of was 43.6±3.4 %. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and molecular properties, m18 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is m18 (KACC 19229=JCM 32051).
