Abstract

A non-spore-forming, motile, Gram-stain-negative, short rod-shaped strain, designated HN4, was isolated from a paddy soil sample collected in Shanghai, China. A comparative analysis o-f 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain HN4 fell within the genus Falsochrobactrum , forming a clear cluster with the type strain of Falsochrobactrum ovis , with which it exhibited a 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity value of 98.2 %. Strain HN4 grew optimally at pH 7.0, 30–35 °C and in the presence of 1 % (w/v) NaCl. It was positive for oxidase activity. Chemotaxonomic analysis showed that strain HN4 contained ubiquinone-10 as the predominant respiratory quinone and possessed summed feature 8(C18 : 1ω7c and/or C18 : 1ω6c) and C19 : 0cyclo ω8c as predominant fatty acids. The major polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylcholine. The DNA G+C content was 56.9 mol%. Strain HN4 exhibited a DNA–DNA relatedness level of 18±1 % with Falsochrobactrum ovis CCM 8460. Based on the data obtained in this study, strain HN4 represents a novel species of the genus Falsochrobactrum , for which the name Falsochrobactrum shanghaiense sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is HN4 (=JCM 32785=CCTCC AB 2018063).
