A Gram-negative, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterial strain, DS-58(T), was isolated from a soil sample from Dokdo, an island of Korea, and its taxonomic position was investigated. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain DS-58(T) fell within the family Xanthomonadaceae. The isolate showed 96.9 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with its closest phylogenetic neighbour, Lysobacter niastensis GH41-7(T), and 93.4-95.7 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with other members of the genus Lysobacter. Strain DS-58(T) contained Q-8 as the predominant ubiquinone and iso-C(16 : 0), iso-C(15 : 0) and iso-C(17 : 1)ω9c as the major fatty acids. The DNA G+C content was 68.1 mol%. Strain DS-58(T) could be distinguished phenotypically from type strains of closely related species of the genus Lysobacter and phylogenetically from all members of the genus Lysobacter. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain DS-58(T) is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Lysobacter, for which the name Lysobacter dokdonensis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is DS-58(T) ( = KCTC 12822(T)  = DSM 17958(T)).

    ABSTRACT: Two Gram-reaction-negative, rod-shaped, gliding, yellow-pigmented bacterial strains, designated ZLD-17(T) and ZLD-29(T), were isolated from arid soil samples collected from Xinjiang Province, north-west China, and subjected to analysis using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Both novel strains required 1.0-2.0 % (w/v) sea salts for optimal growth. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that these two strains belong to the genus Lysobacter within the class Gammaproteobacteria. Strain ZLD-17(T) showed highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities to Lysobacter capsici KCTC 22007(T) (96.9 %), Lysobacter spongiicola DSM 21749(T) (96.8 %) and Lysobacter koreensis KCTC 12204(T) (96.8 %), whereas strain ZLD-29(T) showed highest sequence similarities to Lysobacter niastensis DSM 18481(T) (96.0 %) and Lysobacter enzymogenes DSM 2043(T) (95.9 %). 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between ZLD-17(T) and ZLD-29(T) was 96.1 %. The DNA G+C contents of strains ZLD-17(T) and ZLD-29(T) were 67.9 and 68.2 mol%, respectively. The major cellular fatty acids of both strains were summed feature 3 (iso-C₁₅:₀ 2-OH and/or C₁₆:₁ω7c), iso-C₁₇:₁ω9c, iso-C₁₆:₀, C₁₆:₀ and iso-C₁₁:₀ 3-OH; their predominant isoprenoid quinone was Q-8 and their major polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylglycerol. Based on their phenotypic characteristics, phylogenetic position as determined by 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and chemotaxonomic data, strains ZLD-17(T) ( = CCTCC AB 207174(T)  = KCTC 23076(T)) and ZLD-29(T) ( = CCTCC AB 207175(T) = KCTC 23077(T)) represent two novel species of the genus Lysobacter, for which the names Lysobacter korlensis sp. nov. and Lysobacter bugurensis sp. nov. are proposed, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: A Gram-negative, aerobic, motile, rod-shaped, arsenite [As(III)]-resistant bacterium, designated strain ZS79(T), was isolated from subsurface soil of an iron mine in China. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain ZS79(T) clustered closely with strains of five Lysobacter species, with 96.9, 96.1, 96.0, 95.8 and 95.3% sequence similarities to Lysobacter concretionis Ko07(T), L. daejeonensis GH1-9(T), L. defluvii IMMIB APB-9(T), L. spongiicola KMM 329(T) and L. ruishenii CTN-1(T), respectively. The major cellular fatty acids were iso-C(15:0) (28.6%), iso-C(17:1)ω9c (19.9%), iso-C(16:0) (13.6%), iso-C(11:0) (12.6%) and iso-C(11:0) 3-OH (12.4%). The genomic DNA G+C content was 70.7 mol% and the major respiratory quinone was Q-8. The major polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol and an unknown phospholipid. On the basis of morphological and physiological/biochemical characteristics, phylogenetic position and chemotaxonomic data, this strain is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Lysobacter, for which the name Lysobacter arseniciresistens sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is ZS79(T) (=CGMCC 1.10752(T)=KCTC 23365(T)).

    ABSTRACT: a b s t r a c t The microbial diversity of different kinds of stains present on the surface of 14 historical documents (nine parchments and five paper letters) was evaluated through a combination of cultural and molecular methods. The samples were recovered using adhesive tape and swabs and were afterwards treated in two different ways: (1) direct inoculation on agar plates; or (2) suspension in physiological solution and plating in specific plates for the growth of bacteria and fungi. The isolated microorganisms, before identification, were selected by two different PCR-based methods e f-ITS and f-CBH, for bacteria and fungi, respectively. The f-ITS method is based on the amplification of the internal transcribed sequence between the bacterial 16S and 23S rDNA. The f-CBH method is a new molecular selection tool oriented to the fungal cellobiohydrolase gene. Both PCR selection methods produced typical profiles, which clustered the isolates in order to reduce them for subsequent sequencing identification through the amplification of the fungal 28S rRNA and the bacterial 16S rRNA genes. The cellulolytic and proteolytic abilities were screened through the use of three plate assays, the Ostazin Brilliant Red H-3B (OBR-HEC), milk agar, and gelatin agar. Massilia timonae, Lysobacter dokdonensis, and strains belonging to the genus Bacillus sp., Microbacterium sp., and Curtobacterium sp. with different fungal members such as Aspergillus fumigatus, Penicillium commune, Mucor spinosus, and Phoma herbarum (all recovered from paper) displayed both biodegradative activities. The parchment isolates with a marked proteolytic activity were Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Pseudomonas oryzihabitans, Virgibacillus sp., Micromonospora sp., and again members of the fungal genera Penicillium, Mucor, and Phoma.
