A halotolerant, Gram-negative, rod-shaped and light-red-pigmented bacterium, designated LP51(T), was isolated from pond sediment near a hexachlorocyclohexane dumpsite located at Chinhat, Lucknow, India. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain LP51(T) formed a distinct phyletic clade along with the members of the genus Pontibacter. The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to members of the genus Pontibacter ranged from 94.2 to 99.4%. The cells were motile, aerobic… CONTINUE READING
