A novel Gram-negative, obligately aerobic, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterium, strain M97(T), was isolated from marine sediment of a cage-cultured ark clam farm on the south coast of Korea. Strain M97(T) was positive for oxidase and catalase. Optimal growth occurred at 37 °C, with 1-2 % (w/v) NaCl and at pH 7-8. The main cellular fatty acids were C(16 : 0), C… CONTINUE READING
