A Gram-positive, motile, short-rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain JLT1488(T), was isolated from the South China Sea and investigated in a taxonomic study using a polyphasic approach. The peptidoglycan type determined for strain JLT1488(T) was A4α with lysine as the diagnostic cell-wall diamino acid and an interpeptide bridge of L-Lys-L-Glu. The polar(More)
A Gram-negative, non-motile, short rod-shaped or spherical bacterial strain that accumulates poly-β-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) granules was isolated from the Beibu Gulf in the South China Sea. Cells have no polar or subpolar flagella, dividing by binary fission. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the strain formed a monophyletic(More)
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)
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)
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)
OBJECTIVE To exploit resources of purple sulfur bacteria in China and further investigate its response mechanism to ecological environment of mangrove. METHODS Repeated agar shake dilution method, microscope techniques, UV-Vis absorption spectra, thin layer chromatography, HPLC and MS were used. RESULTS We isolated a purple sulfur bacterium, designated(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.
