The strain 9F was isolated from deep-sea hydrothermal vent plume in Australian-Antarctic Ridge in the Southern
Ocean. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain 9F showed an affiliation to the type strain of Bacillus
lichneformis with a high similarity of 99.9%. In the present study, we compared genomic and phenotypic features
of strain 9F with those of the type strain of B. lichneformis (KCTC 1918T) to find differences between the strains of
strain 9F is the first strain from deep-sea hydrothermal vent environment, while other strains B.
licheniformis have been isolated from diverse terrestrial environments including the type strain.
METHODS AND MATERIALS
A genome sequence of strain 9F was determined using an Illumina MiSeq, whereas a complete genome sequence
of the type strain of B. licheniformis was retrieved from the GenBank under the accession AE017333 (4,222,645
bp with the G+C content of 46.2 mol%). Temperature and salinity ranges for growth were determined for both
strains. Enzyme activities, carbon assimilation, acid production from carbohydrates were assayed using the API
ZYM, 20NE and 50CH kits.
A draft genome of strain 9F revealed 29 contigs in 4,376,753 bp with the G+C content of 45.6 mol%. Genomic
relatedness analyses based on average nucleotide identity and the genome-to-genome distance showed that
strain 9F and B. licheniformis KCTC 1918T belonged to single species. A lower limit of temperature for growth was
10°C and 15°C for strain 9F and B. licheniformis KCTC 1918T, respectively, while an upper limit of temperature was
60°C for both strains. Salinity tolerant tests showed an identical result for both strains (0？7.5% NaCl, w/v). No
difference between both strains was found in the enzyme profiles with the API ZYM and 20 NE assays. However,
an obvious difference in acid production (14 out of 49 carbohydrates in the API 50CH assay) and the assimilation
of arabinose were observed between them.
Preliminary results of comparative genomics between strain 9F and B. licheniformis KCTC 1918T showed some
fragments of DNA were either inserted or deleted in one of the genomes. Interestingly, the different fragments
were often attributed to viral DNAs, suggesting that a horizontal gene transfer mediated by phages might serve to
shape phenotypic traits of their host bacteria originated from different habitats.
