Phylum Proteobacteria, Class Gammaproteobacteria, Order Pseudomonadales, Family Pseudomonadaceae, Genus Pseudomonas,
Pseudomonas jinjuensis Kwon et al. 2003.
Gram-negative, non-spore-forming rods 1.6-2 μm in size, motile by a single polar
Colonies are circular and white-yellow on LB agar. No fluorescent pigments are
produced on King B or PAF media. Growth occurs in media supplemented with 3%
NaCl, but not at a salinity higher than 5%. Grow at 41 ºC but not at 4 ºC.
Isolated from farm soil in Korea.
