Myroides profundi sp. nov., isolated from deep-sea sediment of the southern Okinawa Trough.
ABSTRACT A Gram-negative, nonmotile, aerobic and oxidase- and catalase-positive bacterium, designated D25T, was isolated from the deep-sea sediments of the southern Okinawa Trough area. Phylogenetic analyses of 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain D25T fell within the genus Myroides, with 99.2%, 96.0% and 93.4% sequence similarities to the only three recognized species of Myroides. However, the DNA-DNA similarity value between strain D25T and its nearest neighbour Myroides odoratimimus JCM 7460T was only 49.9% (<70%). Several phenotypic properties could be used to distinguish strain D25T from other Myroides species. The main cellular fatty acids of strain D25T were iso-C15:0, iso-C17:1omega9c, iso-C17:03-OH and Summed Feature 3 (comprising C16:1omega7c and/or iso-C15:02-OH). The major respiratory quinone was MK-6. The DNA G+C content was 33.0 mol%. The results of the polyphasic taxonomy analysis suggested that strain D25T represents a novel species of the genus Myroides, for which the name Myroides profundi sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is D25T (=CCTCC M 208030T=DSM 19823T).

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this announcement is to effect the valid publication of the following effectively published new names and new combinations under the procedure described in the Bacteriological Code (1990 Revision). Authors and other individuals wishing to have new names and/or combinations included in future lists should send three copies of the pertinent reprint or photocopies thereof, or an electronic copy of the published paper, to the IJSEM Editorial Office for confirmation that all of the other requirements for valid publication have been met. It is also a requirement of IJSEM and the ICSP that authors of new species, new subspecies and new combinations provide evidence that types are deposited in two recognized culture collections in two different countries. It should be noted that the date of valid publication of these new names and combinations is the date of publication of this list, not the date of the original publication of the names and combinations. The authors of the new names and combinations are as given below, and these authors' names will be included in the author index of the present issue. Inclusion of a name on these lists validates the publication of the name and thereby makes it available in bacteriological nomenclature. The inclusion of a name on this list is not to be construed as taxonomic acceptance of the taxon to which the name is applied. Indeed, some of these names may, in time, be shown to be synonyms, or the organisms may be transferred to another genus, thus necessitating the creation of a new combination.International journal of systematic and evolutionary microbiology 05/2010; 60(Pt 5):1009-10. · 2.11 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: Authentic, well preserved living organisms are basic elements for research in the life sciences and biotechnology. They are grown and utilized in laboratories around the world and are key to many research programmes, industrial processes and training courses. They are vouchers for publications and must be available for confirmation of results, further study or reinvestigation when new technologies become available. These biological resources must be maintained without change in biological resource collections. In order to achieve best practice in the maintenance and provision of biological materials for industry, research and education the appropriate standards must be followed. Cryopreservation is often the best preservation method available to achieve these aims, allowing long term, stable storage of important microorganisms. To promulgate best practice the Organisation for Economic Development and Co-operation (OECD published the best practice guidelines for BRCs. The OECD best practice consolidated the efforts of the UK National Culture Collections, the European Common Access to Biological Resources and Information (CABRI) project consortium and the World Federation for Culture Collections. The paper discusses quality management options and reviews cryopreservation of fungi, describing how the reproducibility and quality of the technique is maintained in order to retain the full potential of fungi.TheScientificWorldJOURNAL 01/2012; 2012:805659. · 1.73 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: A novel bacterial strain, designated MY15T, was isolated from a saliva sample taken from a student during a teaching experiment in China. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the novel strain was most closely related to Myroides marinus JS-08T, Myroides odoratimimus LMG 4029T and Myroides profundi D25T with 96.5 %, 96.3 % and 96.1 % gene sequence similarities, respectively, demonstrating that the novel strain belonged to the genus Myroides. Strain MY15T formed pale yellow colonies that turned to brown on Luria-Bertani (LB) agar and that gave off a characteristic fruity odour. Cells were Gram-staining-negative, rod-shaped and non-motile. The new isolate contained menaquinone 6 (MK-6) as the major respiratory quinone and C15:0 iso (51.2 %), C17:0 iso 3-OH (12.9 %) and C13:0 iso (10.5 %) as the dominant fatty acids. The G+C content of the DNA was 34.3 mol%. On the basis of this study, based on a polyphasic taxonomic approach, strain MY15T (=DSM 23313T=LMG 25566T) represents a novel species of the genus Myroides, for which the name Myroides phaeus sp. nov. is proposed. Emended descriptions of the genus Myroides and of the species M. profundi and M. marinus are also given.INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SYSTEMATIC AND EVOLUTIONARY MICROBIOLOGY 05/2011; 62(Pt 4):770-5. · 2.11 Impact Factor
