Abstract
A Gram-staining-negative, strictly aerobic, rod-shaped, non-flagellated, non-spore-forming and gliding marine bacterium designated strain CC-AMZ-301T was isolated from coastal surface seawater near Taichung harbour, Taiwan. Strain CC-AMZ-301T predominantly synthesized zeaxanthin and thus formed yellow colonies on marine agar. The novel strain showed high pairwise 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to Kordia periserrulae IMCC1412T (95.0 %), K. algicida KCTC 8814PT (94.4 %) and K. antarctica IMCC3317T (94.2 %), and formed a phylogenetic lineage tightly associated with species of the genus Kordia. The polar lipid profile of strain CCAMZ- 301T consisted of three unidentified lipids, three unidentified aminolipids and one unidentified phospholipid. The major fatty acids (.5% of total) were iso-C17 : 0 3-OH, iso-C15 : 0, summed feature 3 (C16 : 1v7c and/or C16 : 1v6c) and summed feature 9 (iso-C17 : 1v9c and/or 10-methyl C16 : 0). The DNA G+C content was 36.4 mol%. Menaquinone 6 (MK-6) was the predominant respiratory quinone. The major polyamine was the triamine sym-homospermidine. Based on evidence from the present polyphasic study, strain CC-AMZ-301T is proposed to represent a novel species of the genus Kordia, for which the name Kordia aquimaris sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is CC-AMZ-301T (5JCM 18556T5BCRC 80464T). An emended description of the genus Kordia is also proposed.
