ABSTRACT A Gram-negative, strictly aerobic, slightly curved rod-shaped bacterial strain, designated CL-UU02(T), was isolated from coastal seawater off the east coast of Korea. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed a clear affiliation of this novel strain with the family Rhodospirillaceae. Strain CL-UU02(T) formed a robust cluster with the type strains of species of the genus Rhodovibrio at 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity levels of 89.9-90.4 %. Strain CL-UU02(T) shared no more than 89 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with the type strains of other species in the family Rhodospirillaceae. Strain CL-UU02(T) was able to grow in the presence of 2-6 % sea salts, and grew optimally at 28-30 degrees C and pH 7-8. The DNA G+C content of strain CL-UU02(T) was 66.3 mol%. On the basis of phylogenetic analyses and chemotaxonomic and physiological data, strain CL-UU02(T) is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus in the family Rhodospirillaceae, for which the name Pelagibius litoralis gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of Pelagibius litoralis is CL-UU02(T) (=KCCM 42323(T)=JCM 15426(T)).

    ABSTRACT: A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, strictly aerobic bacterium, strain 2622(T), was isolated from gamma-irradiated soil sampled from the Taklimakan desert in Xinjiang, China. Phylogenetic analyses showed that strain 2622(T) formed a distinct lineage in the family Rhodospirillaceae and shared 91.7 and 90.1 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with its closest relatives, the type strains of Skermanella xinjiangensis and Skermanella aerolata, respectively. The DNA G+C content of strain 2622(T) was 71.4 mol% and the isoprenoid quinone was ubiquinone Q-10. Based on phenotypic and chemotaxonomic data and phylogenetic analysis, strain 2622(T) is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus in the family Rhodospirillaceae, for which the name Desertibacter roseus gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of Desertibacter roseus is strain 2622(T) ( = CCTCC AB 208152(T)  = KCTC 22436(T)).

    ABSTRACT: A Gram-negative, strictly aerobic and heterotrophic, non-spore-forming bacterial strain, designated LM22(T), was isolated from activated sludge of a sequencing batch reactor for the treatment of malachite green effluent. Cells of strain LM22(T) were slightly curved to straight rods (0.3-0.5×0.6-1.0μm) and motile by a single polar flagellum. Strain LM22(T) was negative for oxidase and catalase activities and phototrophic growth. An internal membrane system and bacteriochlorophyll a were absent. Growth occurred at 20-40°C (optimum 30-35°C) and pH6.0-10.0 (optimum pH7.0-7.5). Strain LM22(T) did not require NaCl for growth and tolerated up to 2.0 % NaCl (optimum 0.5 %). The major ubiquinone was Q-10. The major fatty acids (>10 % of the total) were C(18 : 1)ω7c (32.9 %), C(19 : 0) cyclo ω8c (18.7 %), C(16 : 0) (12.1 %) and C(16 : 0) 2-OH (10.5 %). Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that Inquilinus limosus AU0476(T) was the closest relative (90.4 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). The DNA G+C content was 65.6 mol%. On basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain LM22(T) was considered to represent a novel genus and species of the family Rhodospirillaceae, for which the name Dongia mobilis gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of Dongia mobilis is LM22(T) (=CGMCC 1.7660(T) =JCM 15798(T)).

    ABSTRACT: A novel Gram-staining-negative, non-pigmented, rod-shaped, strictly aerobic, extremely halophilic bacterium, designated strain IA16T, was isolated from saline mud of the hypersaline lake Aran-Bidgol in Iran. Cells of strain IA16T were not motile. Growth occurred between 2.5 and 5.2 M NaCl and optimally at 3.4 M NaCl. The optimum pH and temperature for growth of strain IA16T were pH 7.0 and 40 °C, respectively, while it was able to grow at pH and temperature ranges of 6.0-8.0 and 30-50 °C, respectively. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain IA16T is a member of the family Rhodospirillaceae; however its similarity was as low as 91.6 %, 88.9 % and 88.7 % to the most closely related taxa including Rhodovibrio, Pelagibius and Fodinicurvata type species, respectively. The major cellular fatty acids of the isolate were C19:0 cyclo ω7c and C18:0. The polar lipid pattern of strain IA16T consisted of phosphatidylglycerol, diphosphatidylglycerol, four phospholipids, three aminolipids and two unknown lipid components. The cells of strain IA16T contained the ubiquinone Q-10. The G+C content of the genomic DNA of this strain was 67.0 mol%. The physiological, biochemical and phylogenetic differences between strain IA16T and other previously described taxa suggest that this strain represents a novel species in a new genus within the family Rhodospirillaceae, for which the name Limimonas halophila gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of Limimonas halophila is strain IA16T (= IBRC-M 10018T= DSM 25584T).
