A novel aerobic, bacteriochlorophyll-containing bacteria strain JLT1202rT was isolated from Beibu Gulf in the South China Sea. Cells were gram-negative, non-motile, and short-ovoid to rod-shaped with two narrower poles. Strain JLT1202rT formed circular, opaque, wine-red colonies, and grew optimally at 3–4 % NaCl, pH 7.5–8.0 and 28–30 °C. The strain was(More)
A new aerobic, Gram-negative, chemo-organotrophic, euryhaline bacterium, designated strain JL2009T, was isolated from surface water of the Caribbean Sea. The strain formed flaxen colonies on marine ager 2216 (MA; Difco) medium. Cells were dimorphic, with stalks or a polar flagellum, and reproduction occurred by means of binary fission. Growth occurred at(More)
A novel chemoheterotrophic, aerobic, Gram-negative, rod-shaped, yellow-pigmented, bacterial strain JLT2010T was isolated from deep seawater of the South China Sea. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain JLT2010T belongs to the family Flavobacteriaceae and is most closely related to Ulvibacter antarcticus IMCC3101T(More)
Altibacter lentus strain JLT2010(T) is the type strain of the recently identified novel genus and species of the family Flavobacteriaceae and was first isolated from deep seawater of the South China Sea. It can produce exopolysaccharide. Here we report the first draft genome of JLT2010(T) (3,160,033 bp, with GC content of 42.12%) and major findings from its(More)
Phaeobacter sp. strain JL2886, isolated from deep seawater of the South China Sea, can catabolize d-amino acids. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of Phaeobacter sp. JL2886. It comprises ~4.06 Mbp, with a G+C content of 61.52%. A total of 3,913 protein-coding genes and 10 genes related to d-amino acid catabolism were obtained.
Most marine bacteria produce exopolysaccharides (EPS), and bacterial EPS represent an important source of dissolved organic carbon in marine ecosystems. It was proposed that bacterial EPS rich in uronic acid is resistant to mineralization by microbes and thus has a long residence time in global oceans. To confirm this hypothesis, bacterial EPS rich in(More)
In the original version of this paper unfortunately we overlooked a mistake. The corresponding author for this paper is Yao Zhang. Also, there is a typographical error in the title of the original version of this paper (Members). The correct title is ''Euryhalocaulis caribicus gen. nov., sp. nov., a New Member of the Family Hyphomonadaceae Isolated from the(More)
A novel bacterial strain, JLT2006T, was isolated from the scleractinian coral Platygyra carnosus, located in Hong Kong, China. Cells of this strain were Gram-negative, rod-shaped or oval-shaped and motile by the means of polar flagella. They formed faint-yellow, round colonies on marine agar medium. Phylogenetic analyses based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence(More)
A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming aerobic bacterium, motile with a single polar flagellum, strain JLT2005T, was isolated from surface seawater collected from the East China Sea and formed ivory white colonies on a rich organic medium. The strain was positive for catalase, oxidase, and urease. It grew in the presence of 0–12 % (w/v) NaCl(More)
The alphaproteobacterial strain JLT2003T was isolated from surface seawater off the coast of Guishan island, Taiwan. The strain was Gram negative, ovoid or coccoid, non-motile and formed pink colonies on marine agar 2216 (MA; DIFCO) medium. The dominant fatty acids were C18:1ω7c, cyclo C19:0ω8c, and C16:0. The polar lipid profile consisted of(More)
