  • A Gram-negative, aerobic, motile and slightly curved rod-shaped bacterium (BFLP-8T) was isolated from cutaneous mucus of wild long-snouted seahorses (Hippocampus guttulatus) captured in northwest Spain (Toralla, Galicia). Strain BFLP-8T grew at 10–35 °C and pH 5–9 (optimally at 25 °C and pH 7.0) and with 1–6 % (w/v) NaCl (optimally with 2 % NaCl). The predominant respiratory quinone (90 %) was ubiquinone with ten isoprene units (Q-10) and the major fatty acids identified were C18:1ω7c (54.8… CONTINUE READING
