Viridibacillus Soli sp.nov., Isolated from Forest Soil in Ailaoshan National Nature ReserveViridibacillus Soli sp.nov., Isolated from Forest soil in Ailaoshan National Nature Reserve
A Gram-staining positive, rod-shaped, and subterminal endospore-forming bacterium, designated strain YIM B01967T, was isolated from a forest soil sample collected in Ailaoshan National Nature Reserve, Yuxi City, Xinpin county, Yunnan province, China. Strain YIM B01967T showed the highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with Viridibacillus arvi (99.1%) and Viridibacillus arenosi (98.9%). Based on the phylogenetic and 16S rRNA gene sequence results, strain YIM B01967T was affiliated to the
... Viridibacillus. The growth of YIM B01967T was observed at 15–35°C (optimum, 28°C), pH 7.0–9.0 (optimum, pH 7.5) and in the presence of 0–2% (w/v) NaCl (optimum in 2% NaCl). The cell-wall sugars include ribose, glucose, arabinose, galactose, and mannose. The quinone system consisted of the major compound MK-8 and moderate amounts of MK-7. The major fatty acids (> 10%) were iso-C15:0, anteiso-C15:0, C16:1 ω10c. The major polar lipids profile included DPG, PME. The cell wall peptidoglycan was most likely of the type A4α with an L-Lys–D-Asp interpeptide bridge. The genomic DNA G + C content of strain YIM B01967T was 36.3 mol%. The ANI and dDDH values between strain YIM B01967T and the two reference strains Viridibacillus arvi DSM 16317T and Viridibacillus arenosi DSM 16319T are 61.0% and 32.1%, 60.0% and 33.1% based on the draft genome sequence. The results support the conclusion that strain YIM B01967T represents a novel species of the genus Viridibacillus, the for which the name Viridibacillus soli sp. Nov., is proposed.The type strain is YIM B01967T (= KCTC 43249T = CGMCC 1.18436T).
