A Gram-negative, pink-coloured, rod-shaped, non-flagellated bacterium, designated CL-GP80(T), was isolated from a hypertrophic pond located within the campus of Seoul National University, Korea. Analysis of its 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed that strain CL-GP80(T) belongs to the family Sphingobacteriaceae and is closely related to Pedobacter heparinus ATCC(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)
For molecular study of marine bacteria Pseudoalteromonas phenolica using bacteriophage, a novel bacteriophage, TW1, belonging to the family Siphoviridae, was isolated, and its genome was completely sequenced and analyzed. The phage TW1 genome consists of 39,940-bp-length double-stranded DNA with a GC content of 40.19 %, and it was predicted to have 62 open(More)
A Gram-positive, slightly halophilic, rod-shaped bacterium, designated CL-DD14(T), was isolated from seawater of the East Sea, Korea. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain CL-DD14(T) belongs to the genus Nocardioides. Levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain CL-DD14(T) and the type strains of(More)
Gracilimonas tropica Choi et al. 2009 is a member of order Sphingobacteriales, class Sphingobacteriia. Three species of the genus Gracilimonas have been isolated from marine seawater or a salt mine and showed extremely halotolerant and mesophilic features, although close relatives are extremely halophilic or thermophilic. The type strain of the type species(More)
The virion proteins of Pseudoalteromonas phage φRIO-1 were identified and quantitated by mass spectrometry and gel densitometry. Bioinformatic methods customized to deal with extreme divergence defined a φRIO-1 tail structure homology group of phages, which was further related to T7 tail and internal virion proteins (IVPs). Similarly, homologs of tubular(More)
A slightly halophilic alphaproteobacterium, designated CL-SP26T, was isolated from hypersaline water of a solar saltern located in Seosin, Korea. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed an affiliation with the genus Jannaschia. Sequence similarities between CL-SP26T and type strains of members of the genus Jannaschia were 94.9-97.2 %. Cells were rod-shaped(More)
