Myroides injenensis sp. nov., a new member isolated from human urine


A Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, rod-shaped bacteria, designated M09-0166Tand M09-1053 were isolated from human urine samples. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the isolates belong to the Myroides cluster and were closely related to Myroides phaeus DSM 23313T (96.3 %), Myroides odoratimimus KCTC 23053T (96.1 %), Myroides profundi KCTC 23066T (96.0 %), Myroides odoratus KCTC 23054T (95.4 %) and Myroides pelagicus KCTC 12661T (95.2 %). The major mena quinone was identified as MK-6. The major polar lipids were identified as phosphatidylethanolamine, amino lipids, and several unknown lipids, and the major fatty acids as iso-C15:0 and iso-C17:0 3-OH. Phenotypic and chemotaxonomic data supported the affiliation of the isolates with the genus Myroides and clearly indicated that two isolates represent novel species, for which the name Myroides injenensis sp. nov. (type strain, M09-0166T = KCTC 23367T = JCM 17451T) is proposed.
