Recently, heterotrophic nanoflagellates (HNF) have been reported to actively ingest prokaryotes in high salinity waters. We report the isolation and culture of an HNF from a Korean saltern pond of 300 per thousand salinity. The organism is biflagellated with an acronematic anterior flagellum and never glides on surfaces. The mitochondria have tubular(More)
A Gram-negative, strictly aerobic, non-motile, club-shaped bacterial strain, designated CL-ES2(T), was isolated from coastal water from the east coast of Korea. Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain CL-ES2(T) was related to the genera Phaeobacter (95.0-96.6% similarity to the type strains), Leisingera (96.1%) and Marinovum(More)
A halotolerant, facultatively alkaliphilic bacterium, designated CL-MP28T, was isolated from the surface of a sediment core sample collected at a depth of 2247 m in the Ulleung Basin of the East Sea, Korea. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain CL-MP28T revealed an affiliation with the genus Oceanobacillus. The sequence similarities(More)
A Gram-staining-positive, non-motile, strictly aerobic, non-spore-forming, vibrio-shaped bacterial strain, CL-TW6(T), was isolated from a reservoir seawater sample from a solar saltern in Korea. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain CL-TW6(T) revealed a clear affiliation with the family Microbacteriaceae. Strain CL-TW6(T) showed the closest(More)
A Gram-negative, coccoid to rod-shaped, strictly aerobic bacterium, strain CL-GR66(T), was isolated from coastal seawater collected off Korea. The strain grew optimally in the presence of 3-5 % sea salts, at a temperature of 30 degrees C and at pH 7. The polar lipid profile of strain CL-GR66(T) comprised phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylglycerol,(More)
Two Gram-negative-staining, aerobic bacterial strains, designated CL-SC21(T) and CL-SC22, were isolated from a culture of the diatom Skeletonema costatum (Korean Marine Microalgae Culture Center, KMMCC strain B-396) established from the East Sea, Korea. The two novel strains shared 99.9 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene(More)
A rod-shaped bacterium, designated CL-TF13T, was isolated from a tidal flat in Ganghwa, Korea. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed an affiliation with the genus Tenacibaculum. The sequence similarities between CL-TF13T and type strains of members of the genus Tenacibaculum were from 94.2 to 97.4%. Cells were motile by means of gliding. Strain(More)
A psychrophilic, Gram-negative, dark orange-pigmented bacterium, designated CL-AP4(T), was isolated from a culture of the green alga Pyramimonas gelidicola obtained from the Southern Ocean. Strain CL-AP4(T) grew optimally at 10 degrees C, in the presence of 3-4 % sea salts and at pH 8. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain CL-AP4(T) belonged(More)
A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, strictly aerobic micro-organism, designated strain CL-GR60(T), was isolated from coastal seawater from the East Sea, Korea. A 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed a clear affiliation with the family Hyphomicrobiaceae. Phylogenetic analyses showed that strain CL-GR60(T) formed a robust cluster with the species of the genus(More)
A rod-shaped marine bacterium, CL-TA03(T), isolated from a biofilm in a coastal fish farm in Tongyeong, Korea, was characterized for physiological and biochemical features, fatty acid profile and phylogenetic position based on 16S rRNA gene sequences. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed a clear affiliation with the family Rhodobacteraceae.(More)
