Piscicoccus halotolerans gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from fish sauce in Thailand.
Summary of "Piscicoccus halotolerans gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from fish sauce in Thailand."
Two strains of Gram-positive, catalase negative, tetrad-forming cocci, C01T and C02 isolated from fish sauce were studied systematically. They were facultative anaerobic and produced L-lactic acid from glucose. Straight-chain fatty acids of C18:1omega9c was dominant composition. The DNA G+C contents were 38.6 and 38.7 mol%. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequences analysis, the strain C01T was closely related to Desemzia incerta DSM 20581T with 96.9% similarities. The strains could be clearly distinguished from D. incerta DSM 20581T by cell form, physiological and biochemical characteristics, the DNA G+C content, and a low DNA-DNA relatedness (=5%). Therefore, these strains represent a novel species in the new genus of the Bacillus-Lactobacillus cluster, for which the name Piscicoccus halotolerans gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is C01T (=KCTC 13150T =TISTR 1958T =PCU 316T).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Fish of the genera ONCORHYNCHUS and Salmo in the family SALMONIDAE. They are anadromous game fish, frequenting the coastal waters of both the North Atlantic and Pacific. They are known for their gameness as a sport fish and for the quality of their flesh as a table fish. (Webster, 3d ed).
Food products manufactured from fish (e.g., FISH FLOUR, fish meal).
The most diversified of all fish orders and the largest vertebrate order. It includes many of the commonly known fish such as porgies, croakers, sunfishes, dolphin fish, mackerels, TUNA, etc.
A flour made of pulverized, dried fish or fish parts.
Diseases of freshwater, marine, hatchery or aquarium fish. This term includes diseases of both teleosts (true fish) and elasmobranchs (sharks, rays and skates).
