Abstract

A novel Gram-stain-negative, light pink-coloured, short rod-shaped, designated strain W17, was isolated from a meadow soil sample collected from Xinjiang, PR China. The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that strain W17 was related most closely to M1 (98.72 %) and 8-14-6 (98.44 %). However, strain W17 showed a low level of DNA–DNA relatedness to M1 (32.4±2.6 %) and 8-14-6 (33.5±0.1 %). The genome size of the novel strain was 5.87 Mb and the genomic DNA G+C content was 67.27 mol%. The only respiratory quinone of strain W17 was Q-10. Diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol. phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylcholine were the major polar lipids. The predominant cellular fatty acids were Cω6 and/or Cω7 (48.53 %), C (20.88 %) and C (14.92 %). The phylogenetic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic data showed that strain W17 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is W17 (=GDMCC 1.1392=KCTC 62434).
