A Gram-negative bacterium, designated AD8(T), was isolated from a tidal flat of the Taean coast in South Korea. Cells were strictly aerobic, motile, ovoid rods or rods, with two lateral flagella on one side. Strain AD8(T) was catalase- and oxidase-positive and able to oxidize thiosulfate and reduce nitrate to nitrite. Growth of strain AD8(T) was observed at 15-40 °C (optimum 25-30 °C), at pH 5.0-9.5 (optimum pH 6.0-7.5) and with 1.0-11.0 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum 2.0-4.0 %). The predominant fatty… CONTINUE READING
