Abstract
A Gram-stain-negative, non-motile, non-spore-forming and short rod- or rod-shaped bacterial strain, designated 22-5T, was isolated from a bluespotted cornetfish, Fistularia commersonii, and subjected to taxonomic study. Strain 22-5T grew optimally at 30°C and in the presence of 2-5% (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain 22-5T belonged to the genus Paracoccus and joined the cluster comprising Paracoccus homiensis DD-R11T and Paracoccus zeaxanthinifaciens ATCC 21588T, with which strain 22-5T exhibited 97.4 and 96.9% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, respectively. Strain 22-5T exhibited 94.0-96.6% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with the other type strains of species of the genus Paracoccus. Strain 22-5T contained Q-10 as the predominant menaquinone and C18:1ω7c as the predominant fatty acid. In this study, P. zeaxanthinifaciens KCTC 22688T also contained Q-10 as the predominant isoprenoid quinone. The DNA G+C content of strain 22-5T was 63.6 mol%. Strain 22-5T exhibited 44 and 32% DNA-DNA relatedness to P. homiensis KACC 11518T and P. zeaxanthinifaciens KCTC 22688 T, respectively. On the basis of phenotypic, phylogenetic and genetic data, strain 22-5T is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Paracoccus, for which the name Paracoccus fistulariae sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 22-5T (=KCTC 22803T =CCUG 58401T). ⓒ 2010 IUMS.
