Abstract
An aerobic, spore-forming, moderately halophilic bacterium, strain BH260T, was isolated from a salt lake in China. Cells of this strain were found to be motile rods with flagella. The organism grew optimally at 30-32 °C and pH 8.0 in the presence of 12-15% (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the isolate formed a clade with the type strains of the genus Lentibacillus. The levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity for strain BH260T with respect to Lentibacillus salsus KCTC 3911T, Lentibacillus juripiscarius JCM 12147T and Lentibacillus salicampi KCCM 41560T were 96.0, 95.5 and 95.3%, respectively. Chemotaxonomic data (a DNA G+C content of 44 mol%; MK-7 as the major isoprenoid quinone; A1γ-meso-diaminopimelic acid as the cell-wall type; phosphatidylglycerol and diphosphatidylglycerol as the major polar lipids; anteiso-C15:0, anteiso-C17:0 and iso-C16:0 as the major fatty acids) also supported assignment of the isolate to the genus Lentibacillus. On the basis of physiological and molecular properties, the isolate represents a novel species within the genus Lentibacillus, for which the name Lentibacillus lacisalsi sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is BH260T (= KCTC 3915T= DSM 16462T).
