A Gram-staining-negative, non-motile, spore-forming, rod-shaped, marine bacterial strain, CL-KR2(T), was isolated from tropical seawater near Kosrae, an island in the Federated States of Micronesia. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain CL-KR2(T) revealed a clear affiliation with the genus Gracilimonas. Based on phylogenetic analysis, strain CL-KR2(T) showed the closest phylogenetic relationship to Gracilimonas tropica CL-CB462(T), with 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of 96.6… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Gracilimonas amylolytica sp. nov., isolated from deep-sea sediment.

A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, non-motile and rod-shaped bacterium isolated from deep-sea sediment collected from the Pacific Ocean represents a novel species of the genus Gracilimonas, for which the name GracILimonas amylolytica is proposed.

Gracilimonas halophila sp. nov., isolated from a marine solar saltern.

A phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene indicated that strain WDS2C40T was a member of the genus Gracilimonas within the family Balneolaceae, and this polyphasic taxonomic study is considered to represent a novel species in that genus.

Rhodohalobacter halophilus gen. nov., sp. nov., a moderately halophilic member of the family Balneolaceae.

The isolate formed a novel genus-level clade in the recently described family Balneolaceae, for which the name Rhodohalobacter halophilus gen. nov., sp.

Soortia roseihalophila gen. nov., sp. nov., a new taxon in the order Balneolales isolated from a travertine spring, and description of Soortiaceae fam. nov.

Based on the evidence from the polyphasic study, strain Bsw-2bT represents a novel species in a novel genus within a new family, for which the name Soortia roseihalophila gen. nov. is proposed, within the new family Soortiaceae fam.nov.

Aliifodinibius halophilus sp. nov., a moderately halophilic member of the genus Aliifodinibius, and proposal of Balneolaceae fam. nov.

A novel Gram-stain-negative, rod-shaped, facultatively anaerobic, oxidase-negative and catalase-positive bacterium, designated 2W32T, was isolated from a marine solar saltern on the coast of Weihai, Shandong Province, China and represented a novel species within the genus Aliifodinibius sp.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Recent Work Title High-quality draft genome sequence of Gracilimonas tropica CL-CB 462 T ( DSM 19535 T ) , isolated from a Synechococcus culture Permalink

The genome of the type strain of the genus Gracilimonas, G. tropica DSM19535, was sequenced through the Genomic Encyclopedia of Type Strains, Phase I: the one thousand microbial genomes project and the genomic features of the strain are described.

Biotin pathway in novel Fodinibius salsisoli sp. nov., isolated from hypersaline soils and reclassification of the genus Aliifodinibius as Fodinibius

In-depth in-silico analysis of the metabolism of Fodinibius showed that the biotin biosynthesis pathway was present in the genomes of strain 1BSP15-2V2T and other species of the family Balneolaceae, which could entail major implications in their community role providing this vitamin to other organisms that depend on an exogenous source of this nutrient.

Metagenomic Insights into the Uncultured Diversity and Physiology of Microbes in Four Hypersaline Soda Lake Brines

The first “metagenomic snapshots” of microbial communities thriving in the brines of four shallow soda lakes from the Kulunda Steppe (Altai, Russia) covering a salinity range from 170 to 400 g/L are presented.

The rhizosphere bacterial community dynamics of the halophyte Lycium ruthenicum in different growth stages

The rhizosphere bacterial community diversity and composition were changing with growth stage, and great difference was found between senescence stage and previous two stages.



Gracilimonas tropica gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from a Synechococcus culture.

An irregular, long, rod-shaped marine bacterium, designated CL-CB462(T), was isolated from a Synechococcus culture, which was established from surface water from the tropical Pacific Ocean and considered to represent a new genus.

Pontimonas salivibrio gen. nov., sp. nov., a new member of the family Microbacteriaceae isolated from a seawater reservoir of a solar saltern.

The combined phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data showed clearly that strain CL-TW6(T) could be distinguished from members of the family Microbacteriaceae with validly published names.

Nocardioides salarius sp. nov., isolated from seawater enriched with zooplankton.

On the basis of phylogenetic, genotypic and phenotypic data, strain CL-Z59(T) represents a novel species of the genus Nocardioides, for which the name N Cardioides salarius sp.

Pedobacter roseus sp. nov., isolated from a hypertrophic pond, and emended description of the genus Pedobacter.

Phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analyses indicated that strain CL-GP80(T) could be assigned to the genus Pedobacter, but distinguished from recognized species of the genus.

Oceanobacillus profundus sp. nov., isolated from a deep-sea sediment core.

According to the 16S rRNA gene sequence, DNA-DNA relatedness and physiological data and the fatty acid composition, CL-MP28T represents a novel species within the genus Oceanobacillus, but is distinguishable from the recognized species of this genus.

Muricauda ruestringensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a facultatively anaerobic, appendaged bacterium from German North Sea intertidal sediment.

Evidence based on phenotypic characteristics and 16S rDNA analysis supports the conclusion that this bacterium is distinct from its nearest relative, Zobellia uliginosa, and from the other genera of the Flavobacteriaceae.

Balneola alkaliphila sp. nov., a marine bacterium isolated from the Mediterranean Sea.

On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons, and physiological and biochemical characteristics, the isolate represents a novel species for which the name Balneola alkaliphila sp.

Phylogenetic analysis and taxonomic study of marine Cytophaga-like bacteria: proposal for Tenacibaculum gen. nov. with Tenacibaculum maritimum comb. nov. and Tenacibaculum ovolyticum comb. nov., and description of Tenacibaculum mesophilum sp. nov. and Tenacibaculum amylolyticum sp. nov.

Bacterial strains were isolated from sponge and green algae which were collected on the coast of Japan and Palau by using their gyrB nucleotide sequences and translated peptide sequences (GyrB) in addition to 16S rDNA sequences to analyse their phylogenetic relationships.

Introducing EzTaxon-e: a prokaryotic 16S rRNA gene sequence database with phylotypes that represent uncultured species.

It is concluded that the EzTaxon-e database provides a useful taxonomic backbone for the identification of cultured and uncultured prokaryotes and offers a valuable means of communication among microbiologists who routinely encounter taxonomically novel isolates.
