MICROBULBIFER AGGREGANS SP. NOV., ISOLATED FROM ESTUARINE SEDIMENT FROM A MANGROVE FOREST

Microbulbifer

Moh Tsu Horng, a MSc. student, Dr. Go Furusawa from CCB and Prof. Dr. Amirul Al-Ashraf Abdullah have published a research article entitled Microbulbifer aggregans sp. nov., isolated from estuarine sediment from a mangrove forest” in International journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology. In this study, strain CCB-MM1 was isolated from estuarine mangrove sediment of Matang Mangrove Forest, Malaysia. 16S rRNA sequences of the strain exhibited 98.1~97.3% similarity to closely related species of the genus Microbulbifer.  The Biolog profiles showed that the biochemical characteristics of the strain were different from that of the reference strains. Interestingly, strain CCB-MM1 showed robust cell aggregation and adhesion to the wall of the polypropylene tube in which the cell aggregation and adhesion were not observed in reference strains. These data indicate that strain ST2L12T represents a novel species of the genus Microbulbifer, for which the name Microbulbifer aggregans sp. nov. is proposed.
