ABSTRACT A Gram-negative, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterial strain, SW-255(T), was isolated from seawater from Hwajinpo, on the coast of the East Sea, Korea, and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Strain SW-255(T) grew optimally at pH 7.0-8.0 and 37 degrees C in the presence of 2 % (w/v) NaCl. It contained Q-10 as the predominant ubiquinone and C(18 : 1)omega7c as the major fatty acid. The DNA G+C content was 67.0 mol%. A neighbour-joining phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain SW-255(T) is phylogenetically closely related to the genera Ruegeria and Silicibacter of the Alphaproteobacteria. The levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain SW-255(T) and the type strains of Ruegeria atlantica and two Silicibacter species were in the range 95.8-96.2 %. A phylogenetic tree based on gyrB sequences showed that strain SW-255(T) forms a distinct evolutionary lineage within the Alphaproteobacteria. Differential phenotypic properties, polar lipid profiles and DNA G+C contents, together with the phylogenetic distinctiveness, suggest that strain SW-255(T) should be distinguished from the members of the genera Ruegeria and Silicibacter. On the basis of the phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain SW-255(T) represents a novel genus and species, for which the name Pseudoruegeria aquimaris gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of Pseudoruegeria aquimaris is SW-255(T) (=KCTC 12737(T)=JCM 13603(T)).

    ABSTRACT: A Gram-negative, non-spore-forming, aerobic, non-flagellated and rod- or oval-shaped bacterial strain, BB-MW24T, was isolated from coastal sediment in South Korea, and subjected to a polyphasic study. Strain BB-MW24T grew optimally at 30-37 °C, at pH 7.0-7.5 and in the presence of 2.0-3.0 % (w/v) NaCl. Neighbour-joining phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain BB-MW24T clustered with the type strains of Ponticoccus litoralis and Roseivivax lentus. Strain BB-MW24T exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of 96.0 and 96.2 % to P. litoralis CL-GR66T and R. lentus S5-5T, respectively. Strain BB-MW24T exhibited the highest gyrB sequence similarity value (85.2 %) to Sagittula stellate DSM 11524T, and gyrB sequence similarity values of 83.3 and 83.2 % to P. litoralis DSM 18986T and R. lentus S5-5T, respectively. Strain BB-MW24T contained Q-10 as the predominant ubiquinone and C18:1 ω7c as the predominant fatty acid. The major polar lipid profile strain BB-MW24T was similar with those of members of the genera Ponticoccus and Roseivivax, but one unidentified phospholipid as a major polar lipid was found only in strain BB-MW24T. The DNA G+C content was 68.9 mol%. The phylogenetic data and differential chemotaxonomic and other phenotypic properties revealed that strain BB-MW24T constitutes a new genus and species within the class Alphaproteobacteria, for which the name Litorisediminicola beolgyonensis gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of Litorisediminicola beolgyonensis is BB-MW24T (= KCTC 32139T = CCUG 62953T).

    ABSTRACT: A novel Gram-negative, motile, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain WM35T, was isolated from the intestinal tract of an abalone, Haliotis discus hannai, which was collected from the northern coast of Jeju in Korea. The cells of the isolate grew optimally at 30 °C, pH 6-9, and with 0-5 % (w/v) NaCl. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity comparisons, strain WM35T was grouped in the genus Shimia and was closely related to the type strains of Shimia isoporae (98.7 % similarity) and Shimia marina (97.8 % similarity). The major cellular fatty acids were C18:1 ω7c and C16:0 2-OH. Ubiquinone Q-10 was the predominant respiratory quinone. The polar lipids of strain WM35T comprised phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylglycerol, diphosphatidylglycerol, an unidentified aminolipid and an unidentified lipid. The DNA G+C content of the isolate was 53.8 mol%. The DNA-DNA hybridization values indicated < 16 % genomic relatedness with members of the genus Shimia. The physiological, chemical, and genotypic analyses indicate that strain WM35T represents a novel species of Shimia, for which the name Shimia haliotis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is WM35T (= KACC 17212T = JCM 18870T).

    ABSTRACT: A Gram-negative, aerobic, non-motile and rod-shaped bacterial strain, D-17(T), was isolated from mud flats in the Yellow Sea in Korea. Phylogenetic trees based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that strain D-17(T) belongs to the genus Pseudoruegeria and it shared 97.5 % similarity with the type strain of Pseudoruegeria haliotis WM67(T). The sequence similarities with Pseudoruegeria litimaris HD-43(T) and Pseudoruegeria aquimaris SW-255(T) were 96.9 and 96.1 %, respectively. Strain D-17(T) was found to grow with 0.5-6 % (w/v) NaCl, at 20-30 °C, and at pH 6.5-8.0. Strain D-17(T) was determined to contain Q-10 as the predominant ubiquinone and summed feature 8 (C18:1 ω7c and/or C18:1 ω6c, as defined by the MIDI system) as the major fatty acids. The major polar lipids were identified as phosphatidylglycerol, diphosphatidylglycerol, an unidentified aminolipid, an unidentified glycolipid, an unidentified lipid and four unidentified phospholipids. The DNA G+C content was determined to be 63.6 mol%. The DNA-DNA relatedness with P. haliotis WM67(T) was 32.5 %. The differential phenotypic properties revealed that strain D-17(T) can be separated from other Pseudoruegeria species. Based on the data presented in this study, strain D-17(T) represents a novel species, for which the name Pseudoruegeria limi sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is D-17(T) (=KCTC 32460(T) =JCM 19487(T)).
