Phycisphaera mikurensis gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from a marine alga, and proposal of Phycisphaeraceae fam. nov., Phycisphaerales ord. nov. and Phycisphaerae classis nov. in the phylum
Three strains isolated from a marine alga collected on Mikura Island, Japan, are proposed to be placed in a novel genus and species named Phycisphaera mikurensis gen. nov. in the phylum Planctomycetes.
Oleibacter marinus gen. nov., sp. nov., a bacterium that degrades petroleum aliphatic hydrocarbons in a tropical marine environment.
Three Gram-negative, motile, mesophilic, aerobic, rod-shaped bacterial strains isolate from Indonesian seawater exhibited high n-alkane-degrading activity, which indicated that the strains were important degraders of petroleum aliphatic hydrocarbons in tropical marine environments.
