The first evidence of anaerobic CO oxidation coupled with H2 production by a hyperthermophilic archaeon isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent
From 24 samples of hydrothermal venting structures collected at the East Pacific Rise (13°N), 13 enrichments of coccoid cells were obtained which grew on CO, producing H2 and CO2 at 80°C. AExpand

Diversity and ecophysiological features of thermophilic carboxydotrophic anaerobes.
Both natural and anthropogenic hot environments contain appreciable levels of carbon monoxide (CO). Anaerobic microbial communities play an important role in CO conversion in such environments. CO isExpand

Evidence for Horizontal Gene Transfer of Anaerobic Carbon Monoxide Dehydrogenases
Carbon monoxide (CO) is commonly known as a toxic gas, yet both cultivation studies and emerging genome sequences of bacteria and archaea establish that CO is a widely utilized microbial growthExpand

Formate-driven growth coupled with H2 production
Although a common reaction in anaerobic environments, the conversion of formate and water to bicarbonate and H2 (with a change in Gibbs free energy of ΔG° = +1.3 kJ mol−1) has not been consideredExpand
