A novel exopolysaccharide-producing bacterium (WN9T) was isolated from Chinju, Korea, and was identified as a member of the genus Paenibacillus on the basis of phenotypic characteristics and phylogenetic inference based on 16S rDNA sequence. This organism is a facultatively anaerobic, endospore-forming rod. The diamino acid found in the peptidoglycan is mesodiaminopimelic acid. The predominant menaquinone is MK-7. The major cellular fatty acid is anteiso-C15:0. The G+C content is 53 mol%. The phylogenetic tree shows that strain WN9T falls within the radiation of a cluster comprising the Paenibacillus species. The levels of 16S rDNA similarity between strain WN9T and the type strains of validly described Paenibacillus species are 92.1-95.8%. Strain WN9T is clearly distinguishable from some phylogenetically related Paenibacillus species on the basis of DNA-DNA relatedness data and phenotypic characters. Therefore, on the basis of these data, a novel species of the genus Paenibacillus, Paenibacillus chinjuensis sp. nov., is proposed. The type strain is strain WN9T (= KCTC 8951PT = JCM 10939T).
