Abstract
Four Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterial strains, TF-26T, TF-28, TF-42 and TF-53, were isolated from a tidal flat in the Yellow Sea, Korea, and their taxonomic positions were determined by a polyphasic characterization. The strains grew optimally in the presence of 2-3% (w/v) NaCl and at 30-37 °C. The predominant menaquinone detected in the four strains was MK-6. These strains contained large amounts of fatty acids C16:1ω7c and/or iso-C15:0 2-OH, iso-C15:0, iso-C16:0 3-OH, C15:0 and iso-C17:0 3-OH. The DNA G+C contents of the four strains were 32.3-32.8 mol%. Strains TF-26T, TF-28, TF-42 and TF-53 showed 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity levels of 99.8-100% and DNA-DNA relatedness levels of 82-87%. The four strains exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity levels of 95.0-98.0% to the type strains of the five current Tenacibaculum species, and DNA-DNA relatedness levels between the four strains and two phylogenetic relatives, Tenacibaculum mesophilum DSM 13764T and Tenacibaculum skagerrakense DSM 14836T, were less than 21%. On the basis of phenotypic, phylogenetic and genetic data, strains TF-26T, TF-28, TF-42 and TF-53 were classified in the genus Tenacibaculum as members of a novel species, for which the name Tenacibaculum lutimaris sp. nov. (type strain, TF-26T=KCTC 12302T=DSM 16505T) is proposed.
