Abstract
A Gram-negative, non-motile and moderately halophilic rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain BH206T, was isolated from a saline lake of Xinjiang province in China. The isolate showed catalase-positive and oxidase-negative reactions and did not reduce nitrate. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the isolate was most closely related to [Salegentibacter] catena HY1T with 95.8 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, and formed a tight phyletic group with [Salegentibacter] catena HY1T with a bootstrap value of 99% within the family Flavobacteriaceae. However, strain BH206T and [Salegentibacter] catena HY1T formed a phyletic lineage distinct from other Salegentibacter species. The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities of strain BH206T with other related type species were lower than 94.6 On the basis of physiological and molecular properties, it is clear that [Salegentibacter] catena should be reclassified in the new genus Salinimicrobium as Salinimicrobium catena gen. nov., comb nov. (type strain HY1T=CGMCC 1.6101T=JCM 14015T)and that strain BH206T represents a novel species within the genus Salinimicrobium, for which the name Salinimicrobium xinjianganse sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of Salinimicrobium xinjiangense is BH206T (=KCTC 12883T=DSM 19287T).
