Abstract
A Gram-stain-negative, motile, rod-shaped, cellulose-degrading bacterial strain, BIO-TAS4-2T, which belongs to the Betaproteobacteria, was isolated from forest soil from Naejang Mountain, Korea, and its taxonomic position was investigated by using a polyphasic study. Strain BIO-TAS4-2 T grew optimally at pH 7.0-8.0, at 30 °C and in the presence of 0-1.0% (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic trees based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain BIO-TAS4-2T clustered with members of the genera Andreprevotia, Silvimonas and Deefgea of the family Neisseriaceae, with which it exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities of 93.5-94.2 %. Strain BIO-TAS4-2T contained Q-8 as the predominant ubiquinone and summed feature 3 (C16 : 1ω7c and/or iso-C15 : 0 2-OH) and C16 : 0 as the major fatty acids. The DNA G+C content was 63.8 mol%. Strain BIO-TAS4-2T could be differentiated from members of phylogenetically related genera by differences in fatty acid composition, DNA G+C content and some phenotypic properties. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain BIO-TAS4-2T is considered to represent a novel species in a new genus, for which the name Jeongeupia naejangsanensis gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed, with BIO-TAS4-2 T (=KCTC 22633T=CCUG 57610T) as the type strain.
