A novel anaerobic bacterium was isolated from the sediment of Onondaga Lake (Syracuse, NY), which can use arsenate [As(V)] as a respiratory electron acceptor. The isolate, designated strain Y5 is a spore-forming, motile rod, with lateral flagella. It is Gram-negative though it phylogenetically falls within the low G + C Gram-positive organisms. In addition to the more usual electron donors such as lactate and succinate, strain Y5 also can use H(2)+ CO(2) chemoautotrophically and metabolize… CONTINUE READING
