Fibrisoma limi gen. nov., sp. nov., an orange pigmented filamentous bacterium of the family Cytophagaceae isolated from North Sea tidal flats


Filippini, M; Kaech, A; Ziegler, U; Bagheri, Homayoun C (2011). Fibrisoma limi gen. nov., sp. nov., an orange pigmented filamentous bacterium of the family Cytophagaceae isolated from North Sea tidal flats. International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology, 61(6):1418-1424.

Abstract

An orange pigmented Gram-staining-negative, non motile, filament forming rod-shaped bacterium (BUZ 3T) was isolated from a coastal mud sample from the North Sea (Fedderwardersiel, Germany) and characterized taxonomically using a polyphasic approach. According to 16S rRNA gene sequence data it belongs the family Cytophagaceae, exhibiting low 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity (<90%) to members of the genera Spirosoma, Rudanella and Fibrella. The G+C content was 52.0 mol%. The major fatty acids were summed feature 3 (comprising C16:1{omega}7c and/or isoC15:0 2-OH), C16:1{omega}5c, and isoC17:0 3-OH. The major polar lipids consisted of phosphatidylethanolamine, and several aminolipids. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, it is proposed that, strain BUZ 3T represents a strain of a novel genus and species, for which the name Fibrisoma limi gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is BUZ 3T (= DSMZ 22564T = CCUG 58137T)
