Six strains of a new purple sulfur bacterium were isolated from the chemocline of four different freshwater lakes. Single cells were spherical to oval, nonmotile and contained gas vacuoles in the central part of the cytoplasm. All strains contained bacteriochlorophyll a and okenone as the major carotenoid. The intracytoplasmic membrane system was of vesicular type. All strains resembled each other in growth conditions and utilization of simple organic carbon sources. The strains were able to… CONTINUE READING
