A novel strictly anaerobic, moderately thermophilic, sulfate-reducing bacterium, designated strain Lam5(T), was isolated from a hot spring in north-east Tunisia and was characterized phenotypically and phylogenetically. The isolate stained Gram-negative but had a Gram-positive-type cell wall. The strain comprised endospore-forming, slightly curved(More)
A new thermophilic sulphate-reducing bacterium (strain Hbr5T) was enriched and isolated from a terrestrial Tunisian hot spring. It was a non-spore-forming Gram-negative curved or vibrio-shaped bacterium. It appeared singly or in long chains and was actively motile by a polar flagellum. It possessed c-type cytochromes and desulfofuscidin. Growth occurred(More)
Several strains of sulfate-reducing bacteria were isolated from marine sediments recovered near Tunis, Korbous and Bizerte, Tunisia. They all showed characteristics consistent with members of the genus Desulfovibrio. One of these strains, designated MB3(T), was characterized further. Cells of strain MB3(T) were slender, curved, vibrio-shaped, motile,(More)
