Parapseudoflavitalea muciniphila gen. nov., sp. nov., a member of the family Chitinophagaceae isolated from a human peritoneal tumour and reclassification of Pseudobacter ginsenosidimutans as Pseudoflavitalea ginsenosidimutans comb. nov.
ABSTRACT: A Gram-stain-negative, microaerophilic, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterium strain designated PMP191FT, was isolated from a human peritoneal tumour. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the organism formed a lineage within the family Chitinophagaceae that was distinct from members of the genus Pseudoflavitalea (95.1-95.2 % sequence similarity) and Pseudobacter ginsenosidimutans (94.4 % sequence similarity). The average nucleotide identity values between strain PMP191FT and Pseudoflavitalea rhizosphaerae T16R-265T and Pseudobacter ginsenosidimutans Gsoil 221T was 68.9 and 62.3% respectively. The only respiratory quinone of strain PMP191FT was MK-7 and the major fatty acids were iso-C15 : 0, iso-C15 : 1 G and summed feature 3 (C16:1 ω7c and/or C16:1 ω6c). The polar lipids consisted of phosphatidylethanolamine and some unidentified amino and glycolipids. The G+C content of strain PMP191FT calculated from the genome sequence was 43.4 mol%. Based on phylogenetic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic evidence, strain PMP191FT represents a novel species and genus for which the name Parapseudoflavitalea muciniphila gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is PMP191FT (=DSM 104999T=ATCC BAA-2857T = CCUG 72691T). The phylogenetic analyses also revealed that Pseudobacter ginsenosidimutans shared over 98 % sequence similarly to members of the genus Pseudoflavitalea. However, the average nucleotide identity value between Pseudoflavitalea rhizosphaerae T16R-265T, the type species of the genus and Pseudobacter ginsenosidimutans Gsoil 221T was 86.8 %. Therefore, we also propose that Pseudobacter ginsenosidimutans be reclassified as Pseudoflavitalea ginsenosidimutans comb. nov.
