Summary of "Agaribacter flavus sp. nov., isolated from red algae."

A Gram-stain-negative, non-motile, aerobic, curved-rod bacterium, designated as strain 2p52, was isolated from the marine algae Gracilaria blodgettii collected off the coast of Lingshui county, in Hainan province, China. Strain 2p52 grew at 15-42 °C (optimally at 30-33 °C), at pH 6.0-10.0 (7.5-8.0) and in the presence of 1.0-8.0 % (w/v) NaCl (2.0-3.0 %). The most closely related species was Agaribacter marinus (96.5 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). Phylogenetic analysis based on the sequence of the 16S rRNA gene revealed that strain 2p52 belonged to the genus Agaribacter. The novel strain contained phophatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylglycerol as the major polar lipids. The predominant isoprenoid quinine was Q-8, and the DNA G+C content was 43.2 mol%. The major cellular fatty acids were C16 : 1ω7c and/or iso-C15 : 0 2-OH, C16 : 0, and C18 : 1ω7c. The phenotypic and systematic comparative analyses indicated that the isolate is representative of a novel species of the genus Agaribacter, and the name Agaribacter flavus sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 2p52 (=KCTC 52437=MCCC 1H00151).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Algae of the division Rhodophyta, in which the red pigment (PHYCOERYTHRIN) predominates. However if this pigment is destroyed, the algae can appear purple, brown, green, or yellow. Two important substances found in the cell walls of red algae are AGAR and CARRAGEENAN. Red algae are thought to be closely related to the prokaryotic CYANOBACTERIA.

Algae of the division Chlorophyta, in which the green pigment of CHLOROPHYLL is not masked by other pigments. Green algae have over 7000 species and live in a variety of primarily aquatic habitats. Only about ten percent are marine species, most live in freshwater. They are more closely related to the green vascular land PLANTS than any other group of algae.

Predominantly marine algae of the division Phaeophyta, having CHROMATOPHORES containing carotenoid PIGMENTS, BIOLOGICAL. ALGINATES and phlorotannins occur widely in all major orders. They are considered the most highly evolved algae because of their well-developed multicellular organization and structural complexity.

Microscopic fresh water algae in the family Chrysophyceae. They share many features with the BROWN ALGAE but are planktonic rather than benthic. Though most are photosynthetic, they are not considered truly autotrophic since they can become facultatively heterotrophic in the absence of adequate light. In this state they can feed on BACTERIA or DIATOMS.

A genus of RED ALGAE, in the family Plocamiaceae, found in temperate marine environments worldwide. Polyhalogenated monoterpenes of potential medicinal use have been isolated from its species.
