Three novel heterotrophic, Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, aerobic, gliding, oxidase- and catalase-positive bacteria were isolated from algae collected in the Gulf of Peter the Great, Sea of Japan. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the strains studied represented members of the family Flavobacteriaceae and showed 93.5-93.8 % similarity with(More)
An actinobacterial strain was isolated from marine sediment taken from the Troitsa Bay of the Gulf of Peter the Great, East Siberian Sea, and subjected to a taxonomic investigation. The isolate, designated KMM 3905T, was Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile and coccoid. The strain tolerated up to 15 % NaCl in growth media, although its presence was not(More)
The taxonomic position of a marine, gliding, pink-pigmented, aerobic, heterotrophic and Gram-negative bacterium was established using a polyphasic approach. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that the strain was a member of the phylum 'Bacteroidetes' in which it occupied a separate lineage. The predominant cellular fatty acids were C15 : 0 iso, C17 :(More)
A taxonomic study of a novel marine, heterotrophic, non-gliding, halotolerant and light-pink-pigmented bacterium was carried out using a polyphasic approach. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain KMM 6241(T) is a member of the phylum Bacteroidetes. Strain KMM 6241(T) formed a cluster with the genera Algoriphagus, Chimaereicella and Hongiella(More)
The taxonomic position of acidophilic actinomycetes selectively isolated from acidic soils and litter was examined using a polyphasic approach. The distinct 16S rDNA phyletic branch formed by representative strains was equated with related monophyletic clades that corresponded to the genera Kitasatospora and Streptomyces. The acidophilic isolates also(More)
The taxonomic position of three novel sea-water isolates was determined. The strains studied were strictly aerobic, heterotrophic, pigmented, motile by gliding, Gram-negative and oxidase-, catalase-, beta-galactosidase- and alkaline phosphatase-positive. 16S rRNA gene sequence phylogenetic analysis indicated that the strains KMM 6020T, KMM 6021 and KMM 6028(More)
Six novel gliding, heterotrophic, Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, aerobic, oxidase- and catalase-positive bacteria were isolated from the green alga Ulva fenestrata, sea water and a bottom sediment sample collected in the Gulf of Peter the Great, Sea of Japan. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the strains studied were members of the family(More)
Two Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented bacteria designated PSD1-4T and PHA3-4T, isolated from two sand-dune plant species inhabiting coastal areas in Tae-an, Korea, were subjected to taxonomic investigation. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that both isolates should be placed in the genus Chryseobacterium of the family Flavobacteriaceae. The(More)
Three strains of the marine, gliding, pigmented, facultatively anaerobic, heterotrophic, Gram-negative bacteria were isolated from the green algae Acrosiphonia sonderi (Kütz) Kornm and Ulva fenestrata Ruprecht inhabiting the Sea of Japan. 16S rDNA sequence analysis indicated that the strains were members of the family Flavobacteriaceae, in which they(More)
The taxonomic position of three novel marine, heterotrophic, pigmented and agarolytic bacteria with gliding motility, isolated from the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus intermedius, was investigated. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strains KMM 6166, KMM 6172T and KMM 6173 are members of the phylum Bacteroidetes; their nearest neighbours were(More)
