A piezotolerant, mesophilic, marine lactic acid bacterium (strain LT20T) was isolated from a deep sub-seafloor sediment core collected at Nankai Trough, off the coast of Japan. Cells were Gram-positive, rod-shaped, non-sporulating and non-motile. The NaCl concentration range for growth was 0-120 g l(-1), with the optimum at 10-20 g l(-1). The temperature range for growth at pH 7.0 was 4-50 degrees C, with the optimum at 37-40 degrees C. The optimum pH for growth was 7.0-8.0. The optimum…

Two novel strains of marine lactic acid bacteria, isolated from decaying marine algae collected from a subtropical area of Japan, are described, showing highest similarity to Alkalibacterium putridalgicola T129-2-1(T).

Halolactibacillus halophilus gen. nov., sp. nov. and Halolactibacillus miurensis sp. nov., halophilic and alkaliphilic marine lactic acid bacteria constituting a phylogenetic lineage in Bacillus rRNA group 1.

Comparative sequence analysis of the 16S rRNA genes revealed that these isolates represent novel species constituting a phylogenetic unit outside the radiation of typical lactic acid bacteria and an independent line of descent within the group composed of the halophilic/halotolerant/alkaliphilic and/or alkalitolerant species in Bacillus rRNA group 1.

Lacticigenium naphtae gen. nov., sp. nov., a halotolerant and motile lactic acid bacterium isolated from crude oil.

Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene revealed that strain MIC1-18(T) was accommodated as a member of the lactic acid bacteria of the low-G+C content Gram-positive bacteria; the closest neighbour of this organism was Atopococcus tabaci CCUG 48253(T), with only 90.0 % sequence similarity.

Alkalibacterium indicireducens sp. nov., an obligate alkaliphile that reduces indigo dye.

On the basis of phenotypic characteristics, including hydrolysis of cellulose and fermentation of carbohydrates, and chemotaxonomic characteristics, phylogenetic data and DNA-DNA relatedness data, it is concluded that the isolates merit classification as representatives of a novel species of the genus Alkalibacterium.

Alkalibacterium thalassium sp. nov., Alkalibacterium pelagium sp. nov., Alkalibacterium putridalgicola sp. nov. and Alkalibacterium kapii sp. nov., slightly halophilic and alkaliphilic marine lactic acid bacteria isolated from marine organisms and salted foods collected in Japan and Thailand.

We describe 10 new strains of marine lactic acid bacteria isolated from decaying marine algae, decaying seagrass, raw fish, salted fish and salted and fermented shrimp paste ('ka-pi') collected from

Marinilactibacillus kalidii sp. nov., an Indole Acetic Acid-Producing Endophyte Isolated from a Shoot of Halophyte Kalidium cuspidatum

On the basis of physiological, phenotypic, and phylogenetic characteristics, strain M4U5P12T should be classified as a novel species of Marinilactibacillus kalidii sp.

Alkalibacterium gilvum sp. nov., slightly halophilic and alkaliphilic lactic acid bacterium isolated from soft and semi-hard cheeses.

Nine novel strains of halophilic and alkaliphilic lactic acid bacteria isolated from European soft and semi-hard cheeses by using a saline, alkaline medium were taxonomically characterized and classified as a novel species within the genus Alkalibacterium.

First Complete Genome Sequence of Marinilactibacillus piezotolerans Strain 15R, a Marine Lactobacillus Isolated from Coal-Bearing Sediment 2.0 Kilometers below the Seafloor, Determined by PacBio Single-Molecule Real-Time Technology

The first whole-genome sequence of Marinilactibacillus piezotolerans strain 15R is reported, which has 2,767,908 bp, 35.4% G+C content, and predicted 2,552 candidate protein-coding sequences, with no identified plasmids.

Predominance of Viable Spore-Forming Piezophilic Bacteria in High-Pressure Enrichment Cultures from ~1.5 to 2.4 km-Deep Coal-Bearing Sediments below the Ocean Floor

Bacterial (endo)spores were observed in both the enrichment and pure cultures examined, suggesting that these piezophilic members were derived from microbial communities buried in the ~20 million-year-old coal-bearing sediments after the long-term survival as spores and that the deep biosphere may host more abundant gram-positive spore-forming bacteria and their spores than hitherto recognized.

Hydrostatic Pressure Helps to Cultivate an Original Anaerobic Bacterium From the Atlantis Massif Subseafloor (IODP Expedition 357): Petrocella atlantisensis gen. nov. sp. nov.

This study outlines the importance of using hydrostatic pressure in culture experiments for isolation and characterization of autochthonous piezophilic microorganisms from subseafloor rocks and forms the basis to explain hydrogen and energy production in strain 70B-AT.



Caloranaerobacter azorensis gen. nov., sp. nov., an anaerobic thermophilic bacterium isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent.

Strain MV1087T was heterotrophic, able to ferment proteinaceous substrates, such as brain/heart infusion and gluten, and carbohydrates, including glucose, xylan and starch, and was proposed as a novel species of a new genus, Caloranaerobacter azorensis gen. nov.

Marinilactibacillus psychrotolerans gen. nov., sp. nov., a halophilic and alkaliphilic marine lactic acid bacterium isolated from marine organisms in temperate and subtropical areas of Japan.

The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that the isolates constituted an independent phylogenetic lineage within the radiation of lactic acid bacteria with 96.2% similarity to the genus Alkalibacterium.

Shewanella profunda sp. nov., isolated from deep marine sediment of the Nankai Trough.

Genetic evidence and phenotypic characteristics showed that isolate LT13a(T) constitutes a novel species of the genus Shewanella, and because of the deep origin of the strain, the name Shewanela profunda sp.

Thermodesulfobacterium hydrogeniphilum sp. nov., a thermophilic, chemolithoautotrophic, sulfate-reducing bacterium isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent at Guaymas Basin, and emendation of the genus Thermodesulfobacterium.

It is proposed that this isolate, which constitutes the first marine representative of this genus, should be described as the type strain of a novel species, Thermodesulfobacterium hydrogeniphilum sp.

Desulfovibrio profundus sp. nov., a novel barophilic sulfate-reducing bacterium from deep sediment layers in the Japan Sea.

It is proposed that Japan Sea isolate 500-1 is the type strain of a new species, Desulfovibrio profundus, which is consistent with other characteristics (utilization of hydrogen, fermentation, and utilization of ferric iron and organic sulfonates as electron acceptors).

Alkalibacterium olivoapovliticus gen. nov., sp. nov., a new obligately alkaliphilic bacterium isolated from edible-olive wash-waters.

The results of 16S rRNA sequence comparisons revealed that the strains represent a new alkaliphilic linkage in the order Bacillales, belonging to the Carnobacterium/Aerococcus-like spectrum.

Thermoanaerobacter siderophilus sp. nov., a novel dissimilatory Fe(III)-reducing, anaerobic, thermophilic bacterium.

On the basis of physiological properties and phylogenetic analysis, it is proposed that strain SR4T (= DSM 12299T) should be assigned to a new species, Thermoanaerobacter siderophilus sp.
