A novel Gram-strain-positive, non-spore-forming bacterial strain, designated GP-S2-8T, was isolated from a sea-tidal flat sediment sample from Gopado, Republic of Korea. Cells were aerobic, catalase-negative, oxidase-positive, non-motile and cocci, occurring singly, in pairs or in tetrads, and often tending to form aggregates. The strain grew at 4-45 °C (optimum, 28-37 °C), at pH 4.0-11.0 (pH 7.0-9.0) and in the presence of 0-11 % (w/v) NaCl (0-3 %). Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene… CONTINUE READING
