Abstract

The Gram-stain-variable, rod-shaped, motile bacterial strain, designated S1-20T, was isolated from marine sediment. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain S1-20T was related to the genus Virgibacillus and had highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities with the type strains of Virgibacillus necropolis JCM 16509T(98.1 %), Virgibacillus arcticus JCM 14839T (97.7 %) and Virgibacillus carmonensis JCM 16508T (97.3 %). The predominant cellular fatty acids were anteiso-C15:0 and anteiso-C17:0. The main menaquinone was MK-7. The genomic DNA G+C content of strain S1-20T was 38.3 mol%. The polar lipids profile contained diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, five unidentified phospholipids, one unknown aminophospholipid and an aminolipid. Combined data from phenotypic, phylogenetic and DNA-DNA relatedness studies demonstrated that the strain S1-20T is a representative of a novel species of the genus Virgibacillus, for which we propose the name Virgibacillus flavescens sp. nov. (type strain S1-20T = LMG 28381T = DSM 29015T).
