A Gram-negative, non-motile, non-spore-forming, slightly halophilic bacterial strain, SW-238(T), was isolated from sea water collected from the South Sea in Korea, and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. The organism grew optimally at 25-30 degrees C and in the presence of 2-3% (w/v) NaCl. Strain SW-238(T) was characterized chemotaxonomically as containing ubiquinone (Q-8) as the predominant respiratory lipoquinone and C(18:1)omega9c as the major fatty acid. Its DNA G+C content was 47.6…

On the basis of phenotypic and phylogenetic data, strain SC35(T) (=KCTC 22503(T)=JCM 16343(T)) was placed in the genus Psychrobacter as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name Psychrobacteria aestuarii sp.

Psychrobacter oceani sp. nov., isolated from marine sediment.

Owing to the significant differences in phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics, the isolate merits classification within a novel species, for which the name Psychrobacter oceani sp.

Psychrobacter fulvigenes sp. nov., isolated from a marine crustacean from the Sea of Japan.

Two novel Psychrobacter-like bacteria, strains KC 40(T) and KC 65, were isolated from a marine crustacean specimen collected from the Sea of Japan, and were characterized by using a polyphasic

Psychrobacter lutiphocae sp. nov., isolated from the faeces of a seal.

It is proposed that the new isolate from the faeces of a seal represents a novel species, for which the name Psychrobacter lutiphocae sp.

Characterization of a bacterial community from a Northeast Siberian seacoast permafrost sample.

A combination of culture-dependent and -independent techniques was used to characterize a bacterial community, examine cold adaptation of isocitrate lyase (icl) genes, and detect genes with important

Conversion of Isoeugenol to Vanillin by Psychrobacter sp. Strain CSW4

The present study brings the first evidence for biotransformation of isoeugenol to vanillin in the genus Psychrobacter in the region of salty environments in Iran.

Free-living psychrophilic bacteria of the genus Psychrobacter are descendants of pathobionts

Results indicate growth at 37°C is ancestral in Psychrobacter, lost in many derived species, and likely necessary to colonize the mammalian gut.

Free-Living, Psychrotrophic Bacteria of the Genus Psychrobacter Are Descendants of Pathobionts

Evidence is provided that the genus Psychrobacter, particularly well known for inhabiting low-temperature, high-salt environments such as sea ice, permafrost soils, and frozen foodstuffs, has evolved from a mammalian-associated ancestor.

Biofilm Formation by Psychrobacter arcticus and the Role of a Large Adhesin in Attachment to Surfaces

It is determined that cat1 mutants are unable to form biofilms equivalent to that of the wild type under all conditions tested, indicating a specific role in biofilm formation by P. arcticus.

Bacterial diversity analysis of Yumthang hot spring, North Sikkim, India by Illumina sequencing

This study attempts to analyze the comprehensive bacterial diversity of Yumthang hot spring, Sikkim located at an altitude of 11, 800 ft using culture independent approach and indicates potentially novel microorganisms in this hot spring ecosystem.



Psychrobacter aquimaris sp. nov. and Psychrobacter namhaensis sp. nov., isolated from sea water of the South Sea in Korea.

Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strains SW-210 (T) and SW-242(T) form distinct phylogenetic lineages within the radiation of the cluster comprising Psychrobacter species, having 16S sRNA gene sequence similarity levels of 95.9-99.2 % with respect to the type strains of PsychRobacter species.

Psychrobacter nivimaris sp. nov., a heterotrophic bacterium attached to organic particles isolated from the South Atlantic (Antarctica).

Based on the morphological, physiological and molecular properties of the new isolate, the name Psychrobacter nivimaris sp.

Psychrobacter vallis sp. nov. and Psychrobacter aquaticus sp. nov., from Antarctica.

Twelve strains of psychrophilic bacteria were isolated from cyanobacterial mat samples collected from various water bodies in the McMurdo Dry Valley region of Antarctica, and it is proposed to classify CMS 39(T) and CMS 56(T), a representative strain of Group III, as representing the type strains of novel species of Psychrobacter, for which the names psychrobacter vallis sp.

Psychrobacter alimentarius sp. nov., isolated from squid jeotgal, a traditional Korean fermented seafood.

On the basis of phenotypic and phylogenetic data and genomic distinctiveness, strains JG-100T andJG-102 should be placed in the genus Psych Robacter as a novel species, for which the name Psychrobacter alimentarius sp.

Psychrobacter okhotskensis sp. nov., a lipase-producing facultative psychrophile isolated from the coast of the Okhotsk Sea.

It is concluded that the isolate from the Monbetsu coast of the Okhotsk Sea in Hokkaido, Japan, should be designated as a novel species, for which the name Psychrobacter okhotskensis sp.

Psychrobacter proteolyticus sp. nov., a psychrotrophic, halotolerant bacterium isolated from the Antarctic krill Euphausia superba Dana, excreting a cold-adapted metalloprotease.

Key phenotypic characteristics as well as chemotaxonomic features of the bacterium were congruent with the description of the genus Psychrobacter i.e. Tolerance to 5% bile salts, nitrate reduction, citrate utilization, acid production from carbohydrates, alkaline phosphatase, acid phosphatases, C4 esterase, C14 lipase and valine arylamidase were found to differentiate strain 116 from Psychrobacteria glacincola.

Psychrobacter cibarius sp. nov., isolated from jeotgal, a traditional Korean fermented seafood.

Two novel Psychrobacter-like bacterial strains were isolated from jeotgal, a traditional Korean fermented seafood and classified as representing a novel species within the genus Psychrobacteria cibarius sp.

Psychrobacter maritimus sp. nov. and Psychrobacter arenosus sp. nov., isolated from coastal sea ice and sediments of the Sea of Japan.

Based on a combination of phenotypic and biochemical characteristics and phylogenetic position, it is proposed that the members of these two distinct lineages represent two novel species, for which the names Psychrobacter maritimus sp.

Characterization of several Psychrobacter strains isolated from Antarctic environments and description of Psychrobacter luti sp. nov. and Psychrobacter fozii sp. nov.

DNA-DNA hybridization experiments showed six homology groups, two of them related at the species level to the type strain of Psychrobacter immobilis, LMG 7203T (70-83%).
