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.
Acanthopleuribacter pedis gen. nov., sp. nov., a marine bacterium isolated from a chiton, and description of Acanthopleuribacteraceae fam. nov., Acanthopleuribacterales ord. nov., Holophagaceae fam.
From the taxonomic data obtained in this study, it is proposed that the new marine isolate be placed into a novel genus and species named Acanthopleuribacter pedis gen. nov. within the new family, order and class Ac AnthopleurIBacteraceae fam.nov.
Iamia majanohamensis gen. nov., sp. nov., an actinobacterium isolated from sea cucumber Holothuria edulis, and proposal of Iamiaceae fam. nov.
A novel, Gram-positive bacterial strain, F12(T), was isolated from the abdominal epidermis of a sea cucumber, Holothuria edulis, collected from seawater off the coast of Japan, and showed that it represents a novel, deep-rooting lineage within the class Actinobacteria and clusters with uncultured bacteria and Acidimicrobium ferrooxidans.
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.
Pseudovibrio ascidiaceicola sp. nov., isolated from ascidians (sea squirts).
Two bacterial strains, F423T and F10102, were isolated from two ascidians, Polycitor proliferus and Botryllidae sp., respectively, which were collected from a beach on the Boso peninsula in Japan.
Euzebya tangerina gen. nov., sp. nov., a deeply branching marine actinobacterium isolated from the sea cucumber Holothuria edulis, and proposal of Euzebyaceae fam. nov., Euzebyales ord. nov. and
It is proposed that the new marine isolate, isolated from the abdominal epidermis of a sea cucumber, be placed in a novel genus and be considered a novel species designated Euzebya tangerina gen. nov., sp.
Emended descriptions of the genus Lewinella and of Lewinella cohaerens, Lewinella nigricans and Lewinella persica, and description of Lewinella lutea sp. nov. and Lewinella marina sp. nov.
Two strains, MKG-38(T) and FYK2402M69(T), were isolated from a marine sediment sample and a sea snail, respectively, both collected on the Pacific coast of Japan, and indicated that they are members of the genus Lewinella.
Sneathiella glossodoripedis sp. nov., a marine alphaproteobacterium isolated from the nudibranch Glossodoris cincta, and proposal of Sneathiellales ord. nov. and Sneathiellaceae fam. nov.
A novel marine bacterium, designated strain MKT133(T), was isolated from the foot epidermis of a nudibranch, Glossodoris cincta (Mollusca), collected in seawater off the coast of Japan at a depth of
Rhizobacter gummiphilus sp. nov., a rubber-degrading bacterium isolated from the soil of a botanical garden in Japan.
A rubber-degrading bacterium, the strain NS21, that was isolated from a soil sample in a botanical garden in Japan (Imai et al., 2011) was examined by phenotypic, phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic
