Alishewanella solinquinati sp. nov., Isolated from Soil Contaminated with Textile Dyes

A novel Gram-negative, motile, rod-shaped, facultative anaerobic bacterial strain, KMK6T, was isolated from soil contaminated with textile dyes from an industrial estate located at Ichalkaranji, Maharashtra, India, and its taxonomical position was established by using a polyphasic approach. The major cellular fatty acids included C17:1ω8c, summed feature 3 (C16:1ω7c and/or iso-C15:0 2-OH), C17:0, C16:0, and C18:1ω7c. The DNA G+C content of strain KMK6T was 48.8 mol %. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis confirmed its placement in the genus Alishewanella, and exhibited sequence similarity levels of below 97 % to the type strains of validly published Alishewanella species. On the basis of genotypic and phenotypic evidence, strains KMK6T is considered to be a novel species of the genus Alishewanella, for which we propose that strain KMK6T (=NCIM 5295T =BCRC 17848T) is assigned to a novel species, Alishewanella solinquinati sp. nov.
