Two thermophilic, strictly chemolithoautotrophic, microaerophilic, hydrogen-oxidizing members of the Bacteria designated strain EX-H1T and strain EX-H2T were isolated from two separate deep-sea hydrothermal vent sites at 9 degrees N 104 degrees W in the Pacific Ocean and Guaymas Basin. The motile 2-4-microm-long rods were Gram-negative and non-sporulating.(More)
Five hydrogen-oxidizing, thermophilic, strictly chemolithoautotrophic, microaerophilic strains, with similar (99-100%) 16S rRNA gene sequences were isolated from terrestrial hot springs at Furnas, São Miguel Island, Azores, Portugal. The strain, designated Az-Fu1T, was characterized. The motile, 0.9-2.0 microm rods were Gram-negative and non-sporulating.(More)
Magnetotactic bacteria are a morphologically, metabolically and phylogenetically disparate array of bacteria united by the ability to biomineralize membrane-encased, single-magnetic-domain mineral crystals (magnetosomes) that cause the cell to orientate along the Earth's geomagnetic field. The most commonly observed type of magnetotactic bacteria is the(More)
A novel thermophilic, sulfur-oxidizing Gram-negative bacterium, designated strain SS-5T, was isolated from the Calcite Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park, USA. The cells were motile rods (1.2-2.8 microm long and 0.6-0.8 microm wide). The new isolate was a facultative heterotroph capable of using elemental sulfur or thiosulfate as an electron donor and(More)
A novel thermophilic, sulfur-oxidizing Gram-negative bacterium, designated strain SS-5, was isolated from the Calcite Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park, USA. The cells were motile rods (1?2–2?8 mm long and 0?6–0?8 mm wide). The new isolate was a facultative heterotroph capable of using elemental sulfur or thiosulfate as an electron donor and O2 (1–18(More)
Ether lipids were obtained from a wide range of archaeobacteria grown at extremes of pH, temperature, and salt concentration. With the exception ofSulfolobus acidocaldarius, unilamellar and/or multilamellar liposomes could be prepared from emulsions of total polar lipid extracts by pressure extrusion through filters of various pore sizes. Dynamic light(More)
A magnetotactic bacterium, designated strain MV-1(T), was isolated from sulfide-rich sediments in a salt marsh near Boston, MA, USA. Cells of strain MV-1(T) were Gram-negative, and vibrioid to helicoid in morphology. Cells were motile by means of a single polar flagellum. The cells appeared to display a transitional state between axial and polar(More)
