Gaetbulimicrobium brevivitae gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel member of the family Flavobacteriaceae isolated from a tidal flat of the Yellow Sea in Korea.
PMID : 16403875 DOI : 10.1099/ijs.0.63795-0
A Gram-negative, non-spore-forming and rod-shaped gliding bacterium, designated strain SMK-19T, was isolated from a tidal flat sediment of the Yellow Sea, Korea, and its taxonomic position was investigated by using a polyphasic approach. Strain SMK-19T grew optimally at 37 degrees C, in the presence of 2-3 % (w/v) NaCl and at pH 7.0-8.0. It contained MK-6 as the predominant menaquinone, and iso-C(17 : 0) 3-OH and iso-C(15 : 0) as the major fatty acids. Major polar lipids were phosphatidylethanolamine, unidentified phospholipids and an amino-group-containing lipid that is ninhydrin-positive. The DNA G+C content was 36.0 mol%. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences demonstrated that strain SMK-19T formed a distinct evolutionary lineage within the family Flavobacteriaceae. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain SMK-19T exhibited similarity values of <94.4 % to those of other members of the family Flavobacteriaceae. Strain SMK-19T was distinguished from phylogenetically related genera by differences in several phenotypic properties. On the basis of phenotypic, phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic data, SMK-19T (= KCTC 12390T = DSM 17196T) was classified at the type strain of a novel genus and species, Gaetbulimicrobium brevivitae gen. nov., sp. nov.

Aquimarina intermedia sp. nov., reclassification of Stanierella latercula (Lewin 1969) as Aquimarina latercula comb. nov. and Gaetbulimicrobium brevivitae Yoon et al. 2006 as Aquimarina brevivitae comb. nov. and emended description of the genus Aquimarina.

A heterotrophic, aerobic, Gram-negative, pigmented and gliding bacterium, strain KMM 6258(T), was isolated from the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus intermedius and investigated using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the closest relatives of the novel strain are Aquimarina muelleri, Stanierella latercula and Gaetbulimicrobium brevivitae, members of the family Flavobacteriaceae, with sequence similarities of 96.3, 96.4 and 96.2 %, respectively. Phylogenetic evidence, supported by chemotaxonomic and phenotypic data, assigned strain KMM 6258(T) to the genus Aquimarina as Aquimarina intermedia sp. nov. (type strain KMM 6258(T)=DSM 17527(T)=JCM 13506(T)=LMG 23204(T)). The reclassification of Stanierella latercula as Aquimarina latercula comb. nov. and Gaetbulimicrobium brevivitae as Aquimarina brevivitae comb. nov. is proposed.
