A non-motile, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain WPCB133(T), was isolated from freshwater collected from the Woopo wetland (Republic of Korea). Cells were Gram-reaction-negative, aerobic and catalase- and oxidase-positive. The major fatty acids were iso-C(15 : 0) and anteiso-C(15 : 0). The strain contained MK-7 as the major isoprenoid quinone. The DNA(More)
A Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented bacterium capable of gliding motility, designated strain WPCB118(T), was isolated from fresh water collected from the Woopo wetland (Republic of Korea). Cells were rod-shaped and sometimes filamentous. The major fatty acids were iso-C(15 : 0) 2-OH and/or C(16 : 1)omega7c (45.6 %), C(16 : 1)omega5c (18.5 %), iso-C(15 : 0)(More)
A marine bacterial strain, FR1064(T), was isolated from a surface seawater sample collected off Jeju Island, South Korea. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the isolate belonged to the Gammaproteobacteria and was related to the genus Glaciecola with 97.6 % sequence similarity to Glaciecola pallidula, its nearest(More)
Two non-motile, orange- or yellow-pigmented bacteria, designated strains KYW48(T) and KYW147(T), were isolated from seawater collected from the South Sea, Republic of Korea. Cells of both strains were Gram-reaction-negative, aerobic and catalase- and oxidase-positive. The major fatty acids of strain KYW48(T) were C(18 : 1)ω7c (35.3 %), summed feature 3(More)
A non-motile, rod-shaped, light-yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated strain WPCB159(T), was isolated from freshwater samples collected from the Woopo wetland in Korea. The cells were Gram-negative, aerobic and catalase- and oxidase-positive. The major fatty acids were C(16 : 1)omega7c (34.8 %), iso-C(15 : 0) (24.2 %) and C(16 : 0) (9.4 %). The DNA G+C(More)
A non-motile, rod-shaped and pinkish-red-pigmented bacterium, designated strain WPCB131(T), was isolated from freshwater of Woopo wetland, Republic of Korea. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing indicated that this isolate represents a novel member of the genus Hymenobacter with sequence similarities of 93.2-95.5 % to known Hymenobacter(More)
An orange, rod-shaped, gliding bacterium, designated strain PSC33(T), was isolated from the gut microflora of a mussel collected from Gwangyang Bay, South Sea (Republic of Korea). Cells were Gram-reaction-negative, strictly aerobic, and catalase- and oxidase-positive. The major fatty acids were iso-C(15:0), iso-C(17:0) 3-OH, iso-C(15:1) G, C(15:0) 3-OH and(More)
Diversity of bacterial community in water layer of Woopo wetland was investigated. Cultivable bacterial strains were isolated by the standard dilution plating technique and culture-independent 16S rRNA gene clones were obtained directly from DNA extracts of a water sample. Amplified rDNA restriction analysis (ARDRA) was applied onto both of the isolates and(More)
A rod-shaped, yellow-pigmented, aerobic, Gram-negative bacterium, designated strain JO-1(T), was isolated from an apparently healthy Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, collected at Wan Island, Korea. It grew at 15-37 degrees C (optimum 30 degrees C) only in the presence of sea salts. Strain JO-1(T) hydrolysed casein, Tween 80 and starch. The major fatty(More)
An orange-coloured, rod-shaped, Gram-reaction-negative and aerobic bacterial strain, designated KYW589(T), was isolated from seawater collected from Gwangyang Bay, Republic of Korea. The isolate required sea salts for growth. Gliding motility was observed. Flexirubin-type pigments were absent. Major cellular fatty acids (>10% of the total) were iso-C15:0,(More)
