Taxonomy

Description
Cells grown on solidified mineral artificial seawater media using hexadecane as substrate show a coccobacillus morphology, of about 0.6 μm in length and 0.35 μm in width, and formed circular colonies. Members of the species are aerobes, growing at a pH range of 6.5–8.5 with a pH optimum of 7.5, and a salinity range of 250–500 mM of NaCl, with an optimum concentration of 330 mM. The temperature range for optimal growth is 22–30 °C, with no growth observed at 4 °C and above 34 °C. Cells can grow with hexadecane and pyruvate as a sole carbon sources and fix nitrogen. Genome size is ~2.8 Mbp with a G+C% content of 61.56. The designated type material is strain KTK01, and its genome sequence can be found under NCBI BioSample accession number SAMN11302943.
