Abstract
A marine bacterium, designated strain KMM 6038T, was subjected to taxonomic analysis via a polyphasic approach. Cells of the strain were heterotrophic, orange-pigmented, Gram-negative and motile by means of gliding. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that strain KMM 6038T was closely related to the type species of the genera Algibacter and Yeosuana, members of the family Flavobacteriaceae, with sequence similarities of 93.8 and 93.6% to the respective type strains. However, several chemotaxonomic and phenotypic characteristics, such as the cellular fatty acid profile (iSO-C15:0, anteiSO-Cl5:0, iSO-C15:1, C15:0, C15:1ω6c, iSO-C15:03-OH and iSO-C17:0 3-OH) and the low G+C content of the DNA (35.7 mol%), indicated that the strain should be separated from these two genera. From the results of phenotypic, genotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analyses, the bacterium should be classified as representing a novel genus and species, for which the name Mariniflexile gromovii gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of Mariniflexile gromovii is KMM 6038T ( = KCTC 12570T = LMG 22578T).
