A novel Virgibacillus strain, BH30097T, was isolated from a salt field near Taean-Gun on the Yellow Sea in Korea. Cells were Gram-positive rods and bore ellipsoidal endospores in terminal positions. The optimum pH and temperature for growth of this organism were pH 7 and 25 degrees C, respectively. The main respiratory quinone was MK-7 and the major(More)
Three moderately halophilic, spore-forming strains, designated BH030062T, BH030049 and BH030080, were isolated from a solar saltern in Korea. Phylogenetic analyses and comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence studies revealed that the isolates represent a novel distinct monophyletic lineage within the phyletic group classically defined as the genus Bacillus and(More)
A spore-forming, halophilic bacterium, designated strain BH163(T), was isolated from a salt lake in China. Cells were motile, strictly aerobic rods that contained type A1gamma peptidoglycan with meso-diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic diamino acid. The isolate showed Gram- and catalase-positive reactions and formed a terminal endospore with a swollen(More)
A halotolerant, round-endospore-forming, aerobic, Gram-positive bacterium, designated BH724(T), was isolated from a solar saltern at Taean in Korea. Cells of this strain were rod-shaped and found to be non-motile. Strain BH724(T) grew at salinities of 0-10 % (w/v) NaCl with an optimum of 3 % (w/v) NaCl and at temperatures of 15-50 degrees C with an optimum(More)
A halophilic non-spore-forming bacterium of the gamma-Proteobacteria, designated strain BH030046T, was isolated from a solar saltern in Korea. Cells were Gram-negative, chemoheterotrophic, short rod-shaped and motile with a polar flagellum. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain BH030046T formed a distinct lineage in the family(More)
A Gram-positive, endospore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain B518(T), was isolated from a desert-soil sample from Gansu Province in China. The isolate was strictly aerobic and was motile by means of several flagella. The strain grew optimally at 35-40 degrees C and at pH 7.0-7.5. The predominant fatty acids of strain B518(T) were anteiso-C(15(More)
A Gram-positive, spore-forming and moderately halophilic bacterium, strain BH139(T), was isolated from saline sediment of Xinjiang Province, China. Cells of strain BH139(T) were motile, flagellated rods. The organism grew optimally at 30-35 degrees C in the presence 12-14 % (w/v) NaCl. The major fatty acids were branched saturated fatty acids such as(More)
A Gram-positive, endospore-forming bacterium, designated strain BT080(T), was isolated from a soil sample in Jeju, Korea. Cells of the isolate were strictly aerobic rods that were motile by means of peritrichous flagella. The strain grew optimally at 30-33 degrees C and pH 5.5-6.5. Chemotaxonomic data (major isoprenoid quinone, MK-7; DNA G+C content, 43.3(More)
A moderately halophilic Gram-negative bacterium, strain DS2(T), was isolated from seawater from the East Sea in Korea. Strain DS2(T) grew at salinities of 0-14% (w/v) NaCl and at temperatures in the range 10-38 degrees C. The cells were non-motile short rods (1.0-1.4 microm in width and 1.6-2.6 microm in length) and the major fatty acids were C(18:1)omega7c(More)
Two moderately halotolerant Gram-negative bacteria were isolated from tidal flat sediment of the South Sea in Korea (the Korea Strait). The strains, designated M9T and M18T, were strictly aerobic, rod-shaped and non-spore-forming and motile with a flagellum and their major fatty acids were C(16:0) and C(19:0) cyclo omega8c. Strains M9T and M18T could grow(More)
