Muricauda iocasae sp. nov., isolated from deep sea sediment of the South China Sea.

In this study, we reported a novel yellow-pigmented, Gram-stain-negative bacterium with appendages, designated as strain L2T, isolated from the South China Sea. Growth of strain L2T occurred at 22-40 °C (optimum, 37 °C), pH 6.0-10.0 (pH 7.0) and with 0-8 % (w/v) NaCl (2 %). Phylogenetic analysis based on its 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that strain L2T… CONTINUE READING
