Abstract

Three novel bacterial strains, PVAS-1(T), B3W22(T) and B8W22(T), were isolated from cryotubes used to collect air samples at altitudes of between 27 and 41 km. Based on phenotypic characteristics, chemotaxonomic features, DNA-DNA hybridization with the nearest phylogenetic neighbours and phylogenetic analysis based on partial 16S rRNA gene sequences (PVAS-1(T), 1196 nt; B3W22(T), 1541 nt; B8W22(T), 1533 nt), the three strains were identified as representing novel species, and the names proposed are Janibacter hoylei sp. nov. (type strain PVAS-1(T) =MTCC 8307(T) =DSM 21601(T) =CCUG 56714(T)), Bacillus isronensis sp. nov. (type strain B3W22(T) =MTCC 7902(T) =JCM 13838(T)) and Bacillus aryabhattai sp. nov. (type strain B8W22(T) =MTCC 7755(T) =JCM 13839(T)).
