Flavobacterium enshiense sp. nov., isolated from soil, and emended descriptions of the genus Flavobacterium and Flavobacterium cauense, Flavobacterium saliperosum and Flavobacterium suncheonense.
PMID : 22634701 DOI : 10.1099/ijs.0.039974-0
A Gram-negative, strictly aerobic, yellow-pigmented rod, designated DK69(T), was isolated from soil collected from the waste liquid treatment facility of Bafeng Pharmaceutical Company in the city of Enshi, Hubei Province, China. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences placed strain DK69(T) in the genus Flavobacterium of the family Flavobacteriaceae. The highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities were found with Flavobacterium cauense R2A-7(T) (96.9 %), Flavobacterium saliperosum AS 1.3801(T) (96.3 %) and Flavobacterium suncheonense GH29-5(T) (95.7 %). The major fatty acids (?5 %) were iso-C15 : 0, iso-C17 : 1�s9c, C15 : 0, iso-C17 : 0 3-OH and iso-C15 : 0 3-OH. The major polar lipids were phosphatidylethanolamine, one unidentified aminolipid and one unidentified lipid. The major respiratory quinone was menaquinone-6. The genomic DNA G+C content was 34.4 mol%. Strain DK69(T) represents a novel species of the genus Flavobacterium, for which the name Flavobacterium enshiense sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is DK69(T) (= CCTCC AB 2011144(T) = KCTC 23775(T)). Emended descriptions of the genus Flavobacterium and Flavobacterium cauense, Flavobacterium saliperosum and Flavobacterium suncheonense are also proposed.

Flavobacterium squillarum sp. nov., isolated from a freshwater shrimp culture pond, and emended descriptions of Flavobacterium haoranii, Flavobacterium cauense, Flavobacterium terrae and Flavobacterium aquatile.
PMID : 23148098 DOI : 10.1099/ijs.0.046425-0
A bacterial strain, designated CMJ-5(T), was isolated from a freshwater shrimp culture pond in Taiwan and characterized using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Cells of strain CMJ-5(T) were Gram-stain-negative, strictly aerobic, non-motile, yellow-pigmented rods surrounded by a thick capsule. Growth occurred at 20-35 �XC (optimum, 30 �XC), at pH 6.5-8.0 (optimum, pH 7.0) and with 0-0.5% NaCl (optimum, 0%). Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain CMJ-5(T) belonged to the genus Flavobacterium and was related most closely to Flavobacterium haoranii LQY-7(T) with sequence similarity of 94.4%. Strain CMJ-5(T) contained iso-C15:0 (37.5%), iso-C17:0 3-OH (13.4%), iso-C15:0 3-OH (13.1%) and iso-C15:1 G (11.2%) as the predominant fatty acids. The major isoprenoid quinone was MK-6. The polar lipid profile consisted of phosphatidylethanolamine and several uncharacterized aminophospholipids and phospholipids. The major polyamine was homospermidine. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 42.4 mol%. On the basis of phylogenetic inference and phenotypic data, strain CMJ-5(T) should be classified as a representative of a novel species, for which the name Flavobacterium squillarum sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CMJ-5(T) (=BCRC 80405(T)=LMG 26890(T)=KCTC 23915(T)). Emended descriptions of Flavobacterium haoranii, Flavobacterium cauense, Flavobacterium terrae and Flavobacterium aquatile are also proposed.

Flavobacterium cauense sp. nov., isolated from sediment of a eutrophic lake.
PMID : 19625416 DOI : 10.1099/ijs.0.009688-0
A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated strain R2A-7(T), was isolated from sediment of the eutrophic Taihu Lake in Jiangsu Province, China. The isolate was subjected to a taxonomic study using a polyphasic approach. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequences placed strain R2A-7(T) within the genus Flavobacterium in the family Flavobacteriaceae. The highest sequence similarity was found with Flavobacterium saliperosum (98.3 %), followed by other Flavobacterium species with similarities <96.0 %. The major fatty acids (>5 %) were 15 : 0 iso, 17 : 1 iso omega9c, 17 : 0 iso 3-OH, 15 : 1 iso G and 15 : 0 iso 3-OH. The G+C content of the genomic DNA of strain R2A-7(T) was 37.7 mol%. The DNA-DNA relatedness value with F. saliperosum CGMCC 1.3801(T) was 40.6 %. Molecular and phenotypic data suggest that strain R2A-7(T) represents a novel species within the genus Flavobacterium, for which the name Flavobacterium cauense is proposed. The type strain is R2A-7(T) (=CGMCC 1.7270(T)=NBRC 104929(T)).
