Kangiella koreensis DSM 16069

Names Kangiella koreensis DSM 16069
Accession numbers NC_013166
Background Kangiella koreensis (strain DSM 16069 / KCTC 12182 / SW-125) is a non-motile, moderate halophilic Gram-negative bacterium, originally isolated from the tidal flats sediment of the Yellow Sea in Korea. K. koreensis has an optimal growth in the presence of 2-3% NaCl. Its growth occurs in the presence of 12%NaCl, but not without NaCl or in the presence of more than 13%. The optimal growth temperature is 30-37 degrees Celsius, with maximum at 43 degrees Celsius. Optimal growth pH is 7.0-8.0. Its growth occurs at pH 5.5, but not at pH 5.0. K. koreensis requires peptone for growth and reduces nitrate to nitrogen gas under anaerobic conditions. It differentiates from some phylogenetically related genera by several phenotypic characteristics, particularly respiratory lipoquinone and fatty acid profiles. The predominant respiratory lipoquinone is ubiquinone-8 and the major fatty acid is iso-C15:0. (Adaptated from PMID: 15388751). (EBI Integr8)
