A novel moderately thermophilic, microaerobic to anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic bacterium, designated strain CRT, was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent site at 36 degrees N on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Cells were Gram-negative, non-motile rods. The organism grew at 45-65 degrees C and pH 6.5-7.4, with optimum growth at 55 degrees C and pH 6.9-7.1.(More)
Novel thermophilic, anaerobic, Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria, strains SL9 and OCA1, were isolated from oilfields in France and Australia, respectively. Both strains, together with Thermoanaerobacter yonseiensis KB-1(T) (=DSM 13777(T)), Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis MB4(T) (=DSM 15242(T)) and Carboxydibrachium pacificum JM(T) (=DSM 12653(T)),(More)
A thermophilic, marine, anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic, sulfate-reducing bacterium, strain CIR29812T, was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent site at the Kairei vent field on the Central Indian Ridge. Cells were Gram-negative motile rods that did not form spores. The temperature range for growth was 55-80 degrees C, with an optimum at 70 degrees C.(More)
A novel, strictly anaerobic, thermophilic sulfur-reducing bacterium, strain 525T, was isolated from tubes of the deep-sea hydrothermal vent polychaete Alvinella pompejana, collected on the East Pacific Rise (13 degrees N). This organism grew in the temperature range 37-68 degrees C, the optimum being 53 degrees C, and in the pH range 6.4-7.4, the optimum(More)
A thermophilic, non-spore-forming, marine, sulfate-reducing bacterium, strain SL6T, was isolated from deep-sea hydrothermal sulfides collected at Guaymas Basin. The gram-negative-staining cells occurred singly or in pairs as small, highly motile rods. The temperature range for growth was 50-80 degrees C with an optimum at 75 degrees C. The pH range for(More)
Three thermophilic, anaerobic, strictly chemolithoautotrophic, sulphur- and/or thiosulphate-reducing bacteria, designated SL17(T), SL19(T) and SL22(T), were isolated from deep-sea hydrothermal samples collected at 13 degrees N (East Pacific Rise), Guaymas Basin (Gulf of California) and 23 degrees N (Mid-Atlantic Ridge), respectively. These strains differed(More)
Spontaneous and induced abasic sites in hyperthermophiles DNA have long been suspected to occur at high frequency. Here, Pyrococcus abyssi was used as an attractive model to analyse the impact of such lesions onto the maintenance of genome integrity. We demonstrated that endogenous AP sites persist at a slightly higher level in P. abyssi genome compared(More)
