Abstract
A Gram-negative, non-motile, rod-shaped, Microbulbifer-like bacterial strain, ISL-39T, was isolated from a marine solar saltern of the Yellow Sea in Korea and was subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic investigation. Strain ISL-39T grew optimally at pH 7.0-8.0 and 37 °C. It contained Q-8 as the predominant ubiquinone and iso-C15:0, C16:0 and iso-C17:0 as the major fatty acids. The DNA G + C content was 57.7 mol%. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain ISL-39T belonged to the genus Microbulbifer. Strain ISL-39T exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of 94.7-97.5% with respect to the type strains of four recognized Microbulbifer species. DNA-DNA relatedness data and the differential phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness of ISL-39T make this strain distinguishable from the recognized Microbulbifer species. On the basis of the phenotypic, phylogenetic and genetic data, strain ISL-39T represents a novel species of the genus Microbulbifer, for which the name Microbulbifer celer sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is ISL-39T (=KCTC 12973T=CCUG 54356T).
