A strictly anaerobic, thermophilic, gram-positive, spore-forming cubacterium designated strain SERB 5268T (T = type strain) was isolated from an oil field at a depth of 2,100 m, where the temperature was 92 degrees C. The cells of this organism were gram-positive, straight, motile rods (0.5 by 2 to 3 microns) with peritrichous flagella. The cells occurred(More)
A disc-shaped methanogenic bacterium designated strain SEBR 4847T (T = type strain) was isolated from a sample collected from an African offshore oil field. Strain SEBR 4847T was non-motile, had a G + C content of 50 mol% and produced methane from H2 + CO2, formate, and CO2 + propanol. Strain SEBR 4847T grew optimally at 37 degrees C; no growth was observed(More)
The occurrence of thermophilic, halophilic anaerobic bacteria in the sediment of a Tunisian salted lake was tested in samples collected at 20-cm intervals down to a depth of 1.20 m. A long rod, present only in the 40- to 60-cm layer, was isolated at 60 degrees C in a medium containing 100 g of NaCl per liter and designated strain H168. This strain produced(More)
Two irregular coccoid methanogens designated SEBR 4845T and FR1T were isolated from an oilfield in Alsace, France. Strain SEBR 4845T (T = type strain) is a hydrogenotrophic halotolerant methanogen, which grows optimally at 5% NaCI (w/v) and tolerates up to 12% NaCI. It does not use methylated compounds and therefore cannot be ascribed to any of the known(More)
During glucose and xylose fermentation, Thermoanaerobacter finnii was observed to produce lactate, acetate, H2 and CO2, with ethanol being the major end product. Thermoanaerobacter strain SEBR 5268, an isolate from an oil field, also produced a similar range of end products from glucose and xylose fermentation, with the exception that both ethanol and(More)
AIMS Grey mould caused by Botrytis cinerea is an economically important disease of strawberries in Tunisia and worldwide. The aim of this study was to select effective halophilic bacteria from hypersaline ecosystems and evaluate the abilities of antifungal bacteria to secrete extracellular hydrolytic enzymes, anti-Botrytis metabolites and volatiles.

Strain DVT, a halotolerant, Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic bacterium, was isolated from a hypersaline pond located in Death Valley, California. The cells were non-spore-forming, motile, curved rods (1.0-1.8 x 0.5-0.6 microns) and occurred singly, in pairs or rarely in chains. Strain DVT was oxidase-, catalase-, Voges-Proskauer-, amylase-,(More)
A new thermophilic, strictly halophilic, anaerobic, non-sporulating rod-shaped bacterium, measuring 0.5 x 3.0-8.0 microns and designated strain CTT3T, was isolated from a solar saltern. Strain CTT3T stained Gram-negative, was motile by means of laterally inserted flagella, had a genome G + C content of 33 mol% and grew optimally at 65 degrees C and pH 7.0(More)
A new extremely halophilic chemoorganotrophic bacterium (strain H200T [T = type strain]) was isolated from the hypersaline sediments of Retba Lake in Senegal. This organism was a sluggishly motile, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming, gram-negative, obligate anaerobe that grew optimally at 40 degrees C in the presence of 180 to 200 g of NaCl per liter. The DNA(More)
A new gram-positive, facultative anaerobic, microaerophilic bacterium, designated strain M5T, was isolated from a decantation reservoir of olive mill wastewater. The cells were rod-shaped, non-motile, non-spore-forming and catalase-negative. Growth occurred at pH ranging from 4.5 to 9.5, with optimum growth at 7.0. The optimum temperature for growth was(More)
