Thalassotalea atypica sp. nov., isolated from seawater, and emended description of Thalassotalea eurytherma.
PMID : 29143725 DOI : 10.1099/ijsem.0.002495
A novel Gram-stain-negative, straight or slightly curved rod-shaped, non-spore-forming, non-flagellated, strictly aerobic strain, designated RZG4-3-1T, was isolated from coastal seawater of Rizhao, China (119.625�X E 35.517�X N). The organism grew optimally at 24-28 �XC, at pH 7.0 and in the presence of 2.0 % (w/v) NaCl. The strain required seawater or artificial seawater for growth, and NaCl alone did not support growth. Strain RZG4-3-1T contained ubiquinone 8 (Q-8) as the major respiratory quinone and contained C16 : 1�s7c and/or C16 : 1�s6c and C16 : 0 as the dominant fatty acids. The polar lipids of strain RZG4-3-1T were phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol and one unidentified aminophospholipid. The DNA G+C content of strain RZG4-3-1T was 40.1 mol%. Strain RZG4-3-1T exhibited the highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity value (96.0 %) to Thalassotalea eurytherma JCM 18482T. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain RZG4-3-1T belonged to the genus Thalassotalea. On the basis of polyphasic analyses, strain RZG4-3-1T represents a novel species of the genus Thalassotalea, for which the name Thalassotalea atypica sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RZG4-3-1T (=JCM 31894T=KCTC 52745T=MCCC 1K03276T). An emended description of Thalassotalea eurytherma is also provided.

Thalassotalea marina sp. nov., isolated from a marine recirculating aquaculture system, reclassification of Thalassomonas eurytherma as Thalassotalea eurytherma comb. nov. and emended description of the genus Thalassotalea.
PMID : 26400666 DOI : 10.1099/ijsem.0.000637
A Gram-stain-negative, facultatively anaerobic bacterium, strain QBLM2T, was isolated from rearing water of a marine recirculating aquaculture system in Tianjin, China. Its taxonomic position was investigated through a polyphasic approach. Cells of strain QBLM2T were non-spore-forming rods, motile by means of a single polar flagellum. Positive for oxidase and catalase. Growth occurred at 15-40 �XC (optimum 30 �XC), at pH 6.5-10.5 (optimum pH 7.5-8.5) and in the presence of 0-5.0 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum 3 %). Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain QBLM2T formed a distinct lineage within the genus Thalassotalea and exhibited sequence similarities of 94.5-96.3 % to members of the genus Thalassotalea. The predominant fatty acids (>10 %) were C17 : 1�s8c and summed feature 3 (C16 : 1�s7c and/or C16 : 1�s6c). The major polar lipids were phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylethanolamine. Ubiquinone 8 (Q-8) was the major ubiquinone. The DNA G+C content was 37.1 mol%. Based on the data above, strain QBLM2T is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Thalassotalea, for which the name Thalassotalea marina sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is QBLM2T (= CGMCC 1.12814T = KCTC 42731T). Phylogenetic analyses indicated that Thalassomonas eurytherma Za6a-12T fell within the genus Thalassotalea, so it is reclassified as Thalassotalea eurytherma comb. nov. and the description of the genus Thalassotalea is emended.

Thalassomonas eurytherma sp. nov., a marine proteobacterium.
PMID : 24664580 DOI : 10.1099/ijs.0.058255-0
Two Gram-staining-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped bacterial strains, designated Za6a-12(T) and Za6a-17, were isolated from seawater of the East China Sea. Cells of Za6a-12(T) and Za6a-17 were approximately 1.5-2.0 ?m��0.5-0.7 ?m and motile by a single polar flagellum. Strains grew optimally at pH 7.5-8.0, 28 �XC, and in the presence of 2.5-3.0% (w/v) NaCl. Chemotaxonomic analysis showed that the predominant respiratory quinone of strains Za6a-12(T) and Za6a-17 was ubiquinone-8 (>97%), and the major fatty acids were C(14 : 0), C(16 : 1)�s7c and/or iso-C(15 : 0) 2-OH, C(16 : 0) and C(17 : 1)�s8c. Their DNA G+C contents were 42.7 mol% and 42.8 mol%, respectively. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the isolates belonged to the genus Thalassomonas and showed the highest sequence similarity to Thalassomonas loyana CBMAI 722(T) (95.9%). Strains Za6a-12(T) and Za6a-17 could be differentiated from T. loyana CBMAI 722(T) according to their phenotypic and chemotaxonomic features, DNA G+C contents and fatty acid composition. On the basis of these features, we propose strains Za6a-12(T) and Za6a-17 to be representatives of a novel species of the genus Thalassomonas with the name Thalassomonas eurytherma sp. nov. suggested. Strain Za6a-12(T) (= CGMCC 1.12115(T) = JCM 18482(T)) is the type strain of this novel species.
