A group of sea-ice-derived psychrophilic bacterial strains possessing the unusual ability to synthesize the polyunsaturated fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (20:5 omega 3) and arachidonic acid (20:4 omega 6) belong to the Family Flavobacteriaceae (Flexibacter-Bacteroides-Flavobacterium phylum), according to 16S rRNA sequence analysis. Surprisingly, the isolates were also found to cluster closely to the moderately halophilic and psychrotrophic species [Flavobacterium] gondwanense (sequence…

TLDR
Three strains of gliding bacteria, 24(T), 62 and 71, isolated from a marine sponge and algae from the southern coastline of Thailand, were studied using a polyphasic approach to clarify their taxonomic positions and represent a novel species of a novel genus, for which the name Aureispira marina gen. nov.
Zeaxanthinibacter enoshimensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel zeaxanthin-producing marine bacterium of the family Flavobacteriaceae, isolated from seawater off Enoshima Island, Japan.
TLDR
Based on its unique phenotypic, genotypic and phylogenetic features, strain TD-ZE3(T) represents a novel taxon, for which the name Zeaxanthinibacter enoshimensis gen. nov., sp.
Robiginitalea biformata gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel marine bacterium in the family Flavobacteriaceae with a higher G+C content.
TLDR
It is proposed, from the polyphasic evidence, that the strains be placed into a novel genus and a novel species named Robiginitalea biformata gen. nov., with strain HTCC2501T (=ATCC BAA-864T=KCTC 12146T) as the type strain.
Meridianimaribacter flavus gen. nov., sp. nov., a member of the family Flavobacteriaceae isolated from marine sediment of the South China Sea.
TLDR
Based on the physiological and phylogenetic data, and on the fatty acid composition, strain NH57N(T) is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus in the family Flavobacteriaceae, for which the name Meridianimaribacter flavus gen. nov. is proposed.
Vitellibacter vladivostokensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a new member of the phylum Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides.
TLDR
A novel heterotrophic, yellow-orange-pigmented, non-motile, asporogenic, strictly aerobic, Gram-negative, oxidase and catalase-positive bacterium isolated from the holothurian Apostichopus japonicus collected from Troitsa Bay during November 1997 is designated Vitellibacter vladivostokensis gen. nov.

TLDR
Psychrophilic, yellow-pigmented, seawater-requiring bacteria isolated from the pycnocline of meromictic Burton Lake and from sea ice cores obtained in the Vestfold Hills in eastern Antarctica were characterized and it is proposed that the new taxa are novel bacterial species designated Psychroserpens burtonensis gen. nov.

TLDR
This is the first taxonomic description of gas vacuolate bacteria in the CFB group and proposes a new genus, Polaribacter, with three new species, polaribacter irgensii strain 23-P, PolarIBacter franzmannii strain 301 and Polaribacteria filamentus strain 215.

TLDR
The phylogenetic positions and G+C contents of most species belonging to the genera Flavobacterium, Cytophaga, and Flexibacter and several related taxa were determined and new combinations for 7 of the 10 validly described species included in this genus are proposed.

Several strains of a novel heterotrophic gas vacuolate bacterium were isolated from antarctic marine waters. The results of phylogenetic analyses in which 16S ribosomal DAN sequencing was used,
Production of eicosapentaenoic and arachidonic acids by an antarctic bacterium: response to growth temperature
TLDR
Eicosapentaenoic acid appears to modulate both lipid phase and fluidity in response to temperature within the cellular membrane of strain 651, while arachidonic acid does not appear to be involved in this response.
Direct sequencing of the polymerase chain reaction-amplified 16S rRNA gene of Flavobacterium gondwanense sp. nov. and Flavobacterium salegens sp. nov., two new species from a hypersaline Antarctic lake.
TLDR
Phenotypic data and phospholipid ester-linked fatty acid profiles indicate that pigmented bacterial strains isolated from a hypersaline Antarctic lake are members of the "flavobacterium-bacteroides" phylum and may represent new taxa and phylogenetic analysis showed that the Antarctic strains were phylogenetically distinct.

TLDR
Indirect immunofluorescence was used to quantify the seasonal variation of four halophilic aerobic Antarctic bacteria in Antarctic saline lakes from July 1990 to January 1991, and change in species abundance was not reflected in the totalacterial count, indicating compositional change of the total bacterial population.
Biodiversity and ecophysiology of bacteria associated with Antarctic sea ice
TLDR
A total of 135 bacterial strains were isolated from congelation (land fast) sea ice samples and ice algae biomass samples obtained from the coastal areas of the Vestfold Hills in East Antarctica during the summers of 1992-95 in order to determine the biodiversity of sea ice bacteria.

TLDR
It is proposed that ice diatom assemblages provide niches conducive to the proliferation of a diverse array of psychrophilic bacterial species.
