Summary of "sp. nov., a psychrotolerant bacterium isolated from Renlongba glacier on the Tibetan Plateau."

One aerobic, Gram-stain-negative, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain RB1R5, was isolated from Renlongba glacier in Tibet Autonomous Region, China. Growth was observed at 4-25 °C and pH 7.0-8.0. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain RB1R5 belongs to the genus , and its closest relatives are IMCC26026 and CCM 8827 with 97.75 and 97.42% gene sequence similarities, respectively. The average nucleotide identity and DNA-DNA hybridization values between strain RB1R5 and its closest relative IMCC26026 were 78.02 and 21.8 %, respectively. The major cellular fatty acids were anteiso-C and summed feature 3 (comprising Cω7/Cω6). The sole menaquinone was MK-6. The major phospholipid was phosphatidylethanolamine. On the basis of phenotypic, phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic characterizations, strain RB1R5 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RB1R5 (=CGMCC 1.23024=NBRC 113060).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A system of traditional medicine which is based on the beliefs and practices of the Tibetan culture.

The phenomenon by which a temperate phage incorporates itself into the DNA of a bacterial host, establishing a kind of symbiotic relation between PROPHAGE and bacterium which results in the perpetuation of the prophage in all the descendants of the bacterium. Upon induction (VIRUS ACTIVATION) by various agents, such as ultraviolet radiation, the phage is released, which then becomes virulent and lyses the bacterium.

A gram-negative gliding bacterium isolated from the oral cavity. It is a pathogen often causing PERIODONTITIS.

A genus of gram-positive BACTERIA in the family Gordoniaceae, isolated from soil and from sputa of patients with chest disorders. It is also used for biotransformation of natural products.

A species of gram-negative, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria originally classified within the BACTEROIDES genus. This bacterium produces a cell-bound, oxygen-sensitive collagenase and is isolated from the human mouth.
