An obligately anaerobic, hyperthermophilic, organoheterotrophic archaeon, strain Z-1312(T), was isolated from a freshwater hot spring of the Uzon caldera (Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia). The cells were regular cocci, 1-4 microm in diameter, with one long flagellum. The cell envelope was composed of a globular layer attached to the cytoplasmic membrane. The(More)
A novel anaerobic, thermophilic, CO-utilizing bacterium, strain KarT, was isolated from a hot spring of Karymskoe Lake, Kamchatka Peninsula. The cells of the novel isolate were Gram-positive, spore-forming, short rods. The bacterium grew chemolithoautotrophically on CO, producing equimolar quantities of H2 and CO2 (according to the equation CO + H2O --> CO2(More)
A chemolithoautotrophic sulfur-oxidizing bacterium (SOB) strain ALCO 1 capable of growing at both near-neutral and extremely alkaline pH was isolated from hypersaline soda lakes in S-W Siberia (Altai, Russia). Strain ALCO 1 represents a novel separate branch within the halothiobacilli in the Gammaproteobacteria, which, so far, contained only(More)
