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 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 Gram-negative, strictly aerobic, marine bacterium, designated strain CL-YJ9(T), was isolated from sediment closely associated with the roots of a plant (Suaeda japonica) inhabiting a coastal tidal flat. Cells of the novel strain were straight and rod-shaped and were motile by means of monopolar flagella. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene(More)
A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, strictly aerobic bacterium, designated strain CL-SK30(T), was isolated from a culture of the marine ciliate Myrionecta rubra. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain CL-SK30(T) was most closely related to Cucumibacter marinus (92.0 % similarity) and next to the type strains of species of the genus Devosia (89.8-91.3(More)
