The central clade of the genus Vibrio, also called the Vibrio core group, comprises six species that are tightly related (DNA-DNA reassociation values are very close to 70 % for most species pairs). Identification of novel strains to the species level within this group is troublesome and results are quite often dependent on the methodology employed.(More)
A Gram-negative, slightly halophilic, strictly aerobic, motile chemoorganotrophic bacterium, strain MED92(T), was isolated from a surface water sample from the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Phylogenetic analysis based on its 16S rRNA gene sequence, retrieved from the whole-genome sequence, demonstrated that this isolate is unique, showing <93 % sequence(More)
A facultatively anaerobic marine gammaproteobacterium, designated strain M46(T), was isolated from Mediterranean seawater at Malvarrosa beach, Valencia, Spain. The strain was characterized by using a polyphasic approach and was found to be situated within the genus Photobacterium in the family Vibrionaceae. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene(More)
A group of three motile facultative anaerobic marine bacteria were isolated from cultured Manila clams (Ruditapes philippinarum) in Galicia, north-western Spain. The strains were characterized phenotypically and genotypically. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene and four housekeeping genes, RNA polymerase alpha-chain (rpoA), RecA protein (recA), the(More)
A novel haloalkaliphilic, facultative anaerobic and Gram-negative Salinivibrio-like microorganism (designated strain BAG(T)) was recovered from a saline lake in Ras Mohammed Park (Egypt). Cells were motile, curved rods, not spore-forming and occurred singly. Strain BAG(T) grew optimally at 35°C (temperature growth range 25-40°C) with 10.0% (w/v) NaCl [NaCl(More)
Little is known of the bacterial communities associated with the rhizosphere of wild plant species found in natural settings. The rhizosphere bacterial community associated with wild thyme, Thymus zygis L., plants was analyzed using cultivation, the creation of a near-full length 16S rRNA gene clone library and 454 amplicon pyrosequencing. The bacterial(More)
A novel heterotrophic, marine, strictly aerobic, motile bacterium was isolated from the Red Sea at a depth of 1 m. Analysis of its 16S rRNA gene sequence, retrieved from the whole-genome sequence, showed that this bacterium was most closely related to the genera Oleispira, Oceanobacter and Thalassolituus, each of which contains a single species, within the(More)
Strains 2SM5(T) and 2SM6, two strictly aerobic chemo-organotrophic gammaproteobacteria, were isolated from Mediterranean seawater off the coast of Vinaroz, Castellón, Spain, in February, 1990. They were extensively characterized by a polyphasic study that placed them in the genus Pseudomonas. Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that both(More)
A novel thermophilic, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium strain, designated Buff, was isolated from buffalo-dung samples collected from a buffalo-farm located in Caserta (Campania, south of Italy). Strain Buff was Gram-positive, motile and no spore-forming. The growth temperature range was 40-65 degrees C with an optimum at 60 degrees C, while pH growth range(More)
Strain 7SM29T, an aerobic marine gammaproteobacterium isolated from seawater from Castellón, Spain, was characterized by classical phenotyping, chemotaxonomy and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis. Strain 7SM29T was found to be closely related to strains in the genus Haliea and to Congregibacter litoralis KT71T, with which a genus-level cluster was formed(More)
