Title Flavihumibacter fluminis sp. nov., a novel thermotolerant bacterium isolated from river silt.
Journal Int J Syst Evol Microbiol
Abstract A yellow, Gram-stain-positive, strictly aerobic, thermotolerant, non-motile and rod-shaped bacterial strain, designated RY-1T, was isolated from a silt sample of Fuyang River, Wuqiang County, Hengshui City, Hebei Province, PR China. Cells showed oxidase- and catalase-positive activities. Growth occurred at 20-45 °C (optimum, 37 °C) and pH 6.0-8.0 (optimum, pH 7.0), and in the presence of 0-1.5 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum, 0%). A phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain RY-1T formed a phylogenetic lineage with Flavihumibacter members within the family Chitinophagaceae. A comparison of 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain RY-1T was most closely related to Flavihumibacter cheonanensis WS16T (98.6 %), Flavihumibacter sediminis CJ663T (97.7 %) and Flavihumibacter solisilvae 3-3T (97.6 %). The genome size of strain RY-1T was 4.71 Mb, and the DNA G+C content was 44.3  %. The average nucleotide identity, digital DNA-DNA hybridization and average amino acid identity values between strain RY-1T and reference strains were all lower than the threshold values for species delineation. Strain RY-1T contained menaquinone-7 and iso-C15 : 0, iso-C17 : 0 3-OH and iso-C15 : 1G as the sole respiratory isoprenoid quinone and major cellular fatty acids (≥5 %), respectively. The major polar lipids consisted of phosphatidylethanolamine, three unidentified aminolipids and four unidentified lipids. According to the results of phenotypic, phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic characteristics, strain RY-1T represents a novel species of the genus Flavihumibacter, for which the name Flavihumibacter fluminis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RY-1T (=GDMCC 1.2775T=JCM 34870T).
