A marine bacterial strain, designated MD2(T), was isolated from the damaged tissue of a hydrocoral, Millepora dichotoma, collected from the coral reef in the northern Red Sea, Gulf of Eilat, Israel. Strain MD2(T) was Gram-reaction-negative, rod-shaped and motile, and formed small, creamy and opaque colonies, 1-2 mm in diameter, after 3 days incubation on Marine agar at 30°C. The novel strain grew well in nutrient broth at 1.5-6 % NaCl and at 20-37°C. The major cellular fatty acids were iso-C17… CONTINUE READING
