A Gram-negative, non-motile, short-rod-shaped bacterial strain (JLT1210(T)) that accumulates poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate granules was isolated from the Beibu Gulf in the South China Sea. Cells have polar or subpolar flagella. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the strain belongs to the genus Oceanicola in the order Rhodobacterales, class Alphaproteobacteria. The closest neighbours were Oceanicola nanhaiensis SS011B1-20(T) (96.5 % similarity) and Oceanicola… CONTINUE READING
