 Kwon et al. 2003.
Gram-negative, nonspore-forming rods 1.6-2 μm in size, motile by more than one
polar flagellum.
Colonies are circular and white-yellow on LB agar and become mucoid after 2 days
on TSA medium. Cells produce a fluorescent pigment on King B and PAF media.
Grows at 4 ºC but not at 37 ºC. Growth occurs in media supplemented with 5% NaCl,
but not at a salinity higher than 7%.
Isolated from farm soil in Korea.
Unknown.
