A Gram-positive, rod-shaped, aerobic, non-motile, yellow-pigmented bacterial strain, designated MM2LB(T), was isolated from a chironomid egg mass that was sampled in a waste stabilization pond in northern Israel. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that the isolate should be placed in the genus Leucobacter (family Microbacteriaceae). Levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain MM2LB(T) and the type strains of recognized Leucobacter species were 97.1 % or lower. The dominant… CONTINUE READING
