Serratia silvae sp. nov., Isolated from Forest Soil


The Gram-negative, oxidase-negative, catalase-positive, rod-shaped strain Arafor3T was isolated from forest soil (France). Comparative 16S rRNA gene analysis and phylogenetic analysis based on (1) multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) with four housekeeping genes (atpD, gyrB, infB and rpoB) and (2) genomes indicated that strain Arafor3T shared 98.83% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with the type strain of Serratia fonticola DSM 4576T and was closely related to this same strain in the MLSA and in the phylogenomic tree reconstruction. Average nucleotide identity (ANI) and digital DNA-DNA hybridization (dDDH) comparisons of strain Arafor3T with its nearest neighbor S. fonticola DSM 4576T showed 93.5% identity and 55.7% sequence similarity, respectively, and were lower than the 96% and 70% species-level cut-off values relating to these analyses (Logan et al. in Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 59:2114–21, 2009, The strain differed from S. fonticola in that it was urease and arginine dihydrolase negative. The major fatty acids of strain Arafor3T are C16:0, C16:1 ω7c/C16:1 ω6c, C14:0, C14:0 3-OH/16:1 isoI, and C18:1 ω7c. The major respiratory quinone is Q8. The polar lipid profile consisted of diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, and 6 unknown lipids. The mol G + C% content of the genomic DNA of strain Arafor3T was 53.49%. Hence, Arafor3T represents a novel species within the genus Serratia, for which the name Serratia silvae sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Arafor3T (=LMG 32338T = CIP 111939T).
