Abstract

A thermo-acidophilic endospore-forming bacterium was isolated from a mixed fruit juice. The organism, strain 3A, was rod-shaped, grew aerobically at 30–60 °C (optimum 45–50 °C), pH 3·0–6·0 (optimum pH 4·0–4·5) and produced acid from various sugars. It contained menaquinone-7 as the major isoprenoid quinone. The G+C content of the DNA was 53·1 mol%. The predominant cellular fatty acids of the strain were iso-C, anteiso-C, iso-C, iso-C and anteiso-C, but -alicyclic fatty acids, which are characteristic of the genus , were not found in the strain. Phylogenetic analyses based on both 16S rRNA and (DNA gyrase B subunit gene) gene sequences showed that strain 3A falls into the cluster, validated by significant bootstrap values. However, strain 3A did not show a close relationship to the other species of the cluster. The level of 16S rDNA similarity between strain 3A and other strains of the cluster was between 92·5 and 95·5 %. The level of sequence similarity between strain 3A and other strains of the cluster was between 68·5 and 74·4 %. DNA–DNA hybridization values between strain 3A and phylogenetically related strains of the genera , and were under 13 %, indicating that strain 3A represents a distinct species. On the basis of these results, strain 3A should be classified as a novel species. The name is proposed for this organism. The type strain of is strain 3A (=DSM 14955=IAM 14988).
