Abstract

Two novel bacteria, with an optimum growth temperature of approximately 60°C, were isolated from Lu-shan hot springs in the central region of Taiwan. These isolates were aerobic, thermophilic, halotolerant, pink-pigmented, heterotrophic and resistant to gamma-radiation. Both pleomorphic, short, rod-shaped cells and coccoid cells were observed. Strains LS-286 (=ATCC BAA-452=BCRC 17198) and LS-293T (=ATCC BAA-406T =BCRC 17173T) represented a novel species of the genus Rubrobacter, according to a phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene, DNA-DNA hybridization, biochemical features and fatty acid composition. The name Rubrobacter taiwanensis sp. nov. is proposed for this novel species, with LS-293T as the type strain.
