A bacterial strain, designated Coryn-1(T), was isolated from mucus of the coral Fungia granulosa (northern Red Sea, Gulf of Eilat, Israel) by growth and enrichment of micro-organisms in agar spheres and subsequent plating. The bacterium was found to be a Gram-positive, non-motile, halotolerant, heterotrophic coccobacillus. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses showed that strain Coryn-1(T) belonged to the genus Corynebacterium, exhibiting the highest levels of similarity (94 %) with the… CONTINUE READING
