An acidophilic, aerobic and chemoheterotrophic bacterial strain Teng-A was isolated from acidic environmental samples collected at sulfidic hot springs of Tengchong County, Yunnan Province, China. Cells of strain Teng-A was rod-shaped (0.6-0.8 microm x 1.0 - 1.5 microm), Gram-negative, motile with flagella. Strain Teng-A grew well at temperature of 29-33 degrees C and at pH of 3.0-4.0. It used a wide variety of organic compounds for growth, but did not use ferrous iron, elemental sulfur… CONTINUE READING
