Actibacter

Actibacter is a genus in the phylum Bacteroidetes (Bacteria).[1][2] The genus contains a single species, namely A. sediminis.[3]

A. sediminis[edit source | edit]

A. sediminis, like other members of the phylum Bacteroidetes, is Gram-negative and its major respiratory quinone is MK-6. Additionally, it grows aerobically and forms yellow-pigmented colonies which, however, do not conatin Flexirubin-type pigments. This non-motile rod-shaped bacterium was isolated from tidal flat sediment of Dongmak on Ganghwa Island, South Korea.

Etymology[edit source | edit]

The name Actibacter derives from:
Latin noun acta, seaside; New Latin masculine gender noun, a rodbacter, nominally meaning "a rod", but in effect meaning a bacterium, rod; New Latin masculine gender noun Actibacter, rod from the seaside.[3]

While the epithet sediminis is from Latin genitive case noun sediminis, of a sediment.[3]
