The members of the phylum Bacteroidetes are recognized as some of the most important specialists for the degradation of polysaccharides. However, in contrast to research on Bacteroidetes in the human gut, research on polysaccharide degradation by marine Bacteroidetes is still rare. The genus Algibacter belongs to the Flavobacteriaceae family of the(More)
A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, non-motile, rod-shaped, yellow-pigmented bacterial strain, XC0022T, isolated from freshwater of a limpid stream in Zhejiang, China, was studied using a polyphasic approach. The phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences clearly showed an allocation to the genus Chryseobacterium with the highest sequence(More)
A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, non-spore-forming, non-motile, oval to rod-shaped, prosthecate bacterium, designated strain WM6T, was isolated from a seawater sample collected from the South China Sea at a depth of 150 m and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic investigation. Cells of strain WM6T were approximately 0.5-0.6 µm in width and 0.8-1.2 µm in(More)
A Gram-stain-negative, facultatively anaerobic bacterium, designated WM3T, was isolated from surface seawater collected from the East China Sea. Cells were catalase- and oxidase-positive, short rods and motile by means of a single polar flagellum. Growth occurred at 15-43 °C (optimum 37-40 C), pH 5.5-9.5 (optimum pH 6.5-7.5) and with 0.25-9.0 % (w/v) NaCl(More)
A Gram-stain negative, aerobic, motile and ovoid- to rod-shaped bacteria strain, designated XC0140T, was isolated from soil samples near the sewage treatment tank of a chemical factory in Zhejiang Province, China, and subjected to polyphasic taxonomic investigation. Strain XC0140T grew at 10–37 °C and pH 6.0–9.0 (optimum, 35 °C and pH 7.5) and with 0–17%(More)
A novel Gram-staining-negative, oval-shaped (0.4-0.6×0.8-1.0 µm), non-motile strain without flagella, designated B7T, was isolated from deep seawater in the South China Sea. Strain B7T was able to grow at 25-40 °C (optimum 35 °C), at pH 5.5-9.0 (optimum pH 7.0) and with 0-8 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum 3 %). Chemotaxonomic analysis showed that the predominant(More)
