A marine strain, designated KK4T, was isolated from the surface of a starfish, Patiria pectinifera, which was collected from seawater off the coast of Hokkaido, Japan. Strain KK4T is a Gram-stain-negative, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped, aerobic bacterium that forms yellow-pigmented colonies. A phylogenetic relationship analysis, based on 16S rRNA gene sequences, revealed that strain KK4T was closely related to Ulvibacter marinus IMCC12008T, Ulvibacter antarcticus IMCC3101T and Ulvibacter litoralis KMM 3912T, with similarities of 96.9, 95.8 and 95.6 %, respectively, but low sequence similarities (<94 %) among other genera in the family Flavobacteriaceae. Genomic similarities between strain KK4T and the three Ulvibacter type strains based on average nucleotide identity and digital DNA-DNA hybridization values were lower than the species delineation thresholds. Moreover, phylogenetic tree based on genome sequences showed that strain KK4T was clustered with U. marinus IMCC12008T and formed a branch independent from the cluster including type species of the genera Ulvibacter, Marixanthomonas, Marinirhabdus, Aureitalea and Aequorivita. Amino acid identity values between strain KK4T/U. marinus IMCC12008T and the neighbour type species/strains were 61.9-68.2% and 61.5-67.4 %, which were lower than the genus delineation threshold, implying the novel genus status of strain KK4T. Strain KK4T growth occurred at pH 6.0-9.0, 4-30 °C and in NaCl concentrations of 0.5-5.0 %, and optimally at pH 7.0, 25 °C and 3.0 %, respectively. Unlike Ulvibacter strains, strain KK4T could assimilate glucose, mannose, galactose and acetate. The major quinone and fatty acids were menaquinone-6 and iso-C15 : 0 (27.5 %), iso-C15 : 1 G (22.5 %) and iso-C17 : 0 3-OH (12.8 %), respectively. Based on genetic, phylogenetic and phenotypic properties, strain KK4T represents a novel species of the genus Patiriisocius, for which the name Patiriisocius marinistellae gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is KK4T (=JCM 33344T=KCTC 72225T). In addition, based on the current data, Ulvibacter marinus should be reclassified as Patiriisocius marinus comb. nov.

Bacteria of the family Geobacteraceae are particularly common and deeply involved in many biogeochemical processes in terrestrial and freshwater environments. As part of a study to understand biogeochemical cycling in freshwater sediments, three iron-reducing isolates, designated as Red96T, Red100T, and Red88T, were isolated from the soils of two paddy fields and pond sediment located in Japan. The cells were Gram-negative, strictly anaerobic, rod-shaped, motile, and red-pigmented on agar plates. Growth of these three strains was coupled to the reduction of Fe(III)-NTA, Fe(III) citrate, and ferrihydrite with malate, methanol, pyruvate, and various organic acids and sugars serving as alternate electron donors. Phylogenetic analysis based on the housekeeping genes (16S rRNA gene, gyrB, rpoB, nifD, fusA, and recA) and 92 concatenated core genes indicated that all the isolates constituted a coherent cluster within the family Geobacteraceae. Genomic analyses, including average nucleotide identity and DNA-DNA hybridization, clearly differentiated the strains Red96T, Red100T, and Red88T from other species in the family Geobacteraceae, with values below the thresholds for species delineation. Along with the genomic comparison, the chemotaxonomic features further helped distinguish the three isolates from each other. In addition, the lower values of average amino acid identity and percentage of conserved protein, as well as biochemical differences with their relatives, indicated that the three strains represented a novel genus in the family Geobacteraceae. Hence, we concluded that strains Red96T, Red100T, and Red88T represented three novel species of a novel genus in the family Geobacteraceae, for which the names Oryzomonas japonicum gen. nov., sp. nov., Oryzomonas sagensis sp. nov., and Oryzomonas ruber sp. nov. are proposed, with type strains Red96T (= NBRC 114286T = MCCC 1K04376T), Red100T (= NBRC 114287T = MCCC 1K04377T), and Red88T (= MCCC 1K03694T = JCM 33033T), respectively.

The engineering of stable proteins is crucial for various industrial purposes. Several machine learning methods have been developed to predict changes in the stability of proteins corresponding to single point mutations. To improve the prediction accuracy, we propose a new unsupervised descriptor for protein sequences, which is based on a sequence-to-sequence (seq2seq) neural network model combined with a sequence-compression method called byte-pair encoding (BPE). Our results demonstrate that BPE can encode a protein sequence into a sequence of shorter length, thereby enabling efficient training of the seq2seq model. Furthermore, we implement a basic predictor using the proposed descriptor, and our experimental results demonstrate that the predictor achieves state-of-the-art accuracy in tests for proteins that are not included in the training data.
