Abstract
A moderately halophilic bacterium, strain SS20T, capable of growing at salinities of 1-20% (w/v) NaCl was isolated from a solar saltern of the Dangjin area in Korea and was characterized taxonomically. Strain SS20T was a Gram-negative bacterium comprising motile, short rods. Its major cellular fatty acids were C18:1 ω7c, C19:0ω8c cyclo and C16:0. The DNA G + C content was 70 mol% and the predominant ubiquinone was Q-9. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain SS20T belonged to the genus Halomonas. The levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to the type strains of Halomonas species were in the range 93.0-97.5%. The levels of DNA-DNA relatedness between strain SS20T and the type strains of phylogenetically closely related Halomonas species were in the range 5.3-12.3%. On the basis of physiological and molecular properties, strain SS20T represents a novel species of the genus Halomonas, for which the name Halomonas koreensis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is SS20T (=KCTC 12127T=JCM 12237T).
