Two yellow-pigmented, Gram-negative, aerobic bacterial strains, designated FR1087(T) and FR1093(T), were isolated from surface seawater off Jeju Island, Republic of Korea. Both strains required sea salts for growth. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the two isolates belong to the genus Sphingopyxis, showing the highest level of sequence similarity with respect to Sphingopyxis flavimaris SW-151(T) (97.9 %). The two isolates shared 98.5 % sequence similarity… CONTINUE READING
