A Gram-stain-negative, spore-forming, anaerobic bacterium designated strain RU4T was isolated from a saprolite core collected from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA. Cells were slightly curved rods and exhibited an outer membrane exterior to a thin cell wall. Strain RU4T formed heat-resistant endospores in late-log phase and stationary phase cultures. Under anaerobic conditions, strain RU4T grew by fermenting fumarate and maleate, but did not grow on glucose, glycerol, pyruvate, lactate, succinate…

Experimental studies on fermentative firmicutes from anoxic environments: isolation, evolution, and their geochemical impacts

The data suggests that the ancestor to the Firmicutes was originally didermic and that A. subterranea may represent ancestral lineage, and the potential for Clostridium species to perform Fe(III) reduction in contaminated environments and may be relevant towards bioremediation is indicated.

Draft Genome Sequence of a Novel Lactate-Fermenting Bacterial Strain of the Family Sporomusaceae within the Class Negativicutes

Here, we report a draft genome sequence of the Sporomusaceae bacterial strain FL31, a novel lactate-fermenting bacterium of the family Sporomusaceae within the class Negativicutes. This genome

Microbial community types and signature-like soil bacterial patterns from fortified prehistoric hills of Thuringia (Germany)

16S rRNA profiling has been applied for the investigation of bacterial communities of surface soil samples from forest-covered areas of ten prehistorical ramparts from different parts of Thuringia.

Influence of activated carbon on performance and microbial communities in the treatment of solvent pollutant mixtures in a continuous stirred tank reactor

GAC supplementation substantially enhanced the response of the biological system to organic load shocks and reduced the acclimation period for E2P degradation, found to be related to the effect of GAC on the microbial community which, in turn, is related to an increase in the degradation rate of intermediates (acetone and isopropanol).

Effect of Energy Provision Strategy on Rumen Fermentation Characteristics, Bacterial Diversity and Community Composition

This study was conducted to explore the rumen fermentation characteristics, bacterial diversity, and community composition of Hu sheep under four energy provision strategies. Ninety-six Hu sheep




Propionispora vibrioides, nov. gen., nov. sp., a new gram-negative, spore-forming anaerobe that ferments sugar alcohols

It is proposed to classify strain FKBS1 as a new genus and species, Propionispora vibrioides, because the phylogenetic distance to any of its members was too great to allow it to be placed in one of the existing genera.

Sporomusa aerivorans sp. nov., an oxygen-reducing homoacetogenic bacterium from the gut of a soil-feeding termite.

Previously undescribed, homoacetogenic bacteria were isolated from gut homogenates of the soil-feeding termite Thoracotermes macrothorax and assigned to Sporomusa aerivorans sp.

Desulfosporomusa polytropa gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel sulfate-reducing bacterium from sediments of an oligotrophic lake

Five strains of sulfate-reducing bacteria were isolated from the highest positive dilutions of a most probable number (MPN) series supplemented with lactate and inoculated with sediments from the oligotrophic Lake Stechlin, revealing a new phylogenetic lineage of sulfating bacteria.

Sporomusa, a new genus of gram-negative anaerobic bacteria including Sporomusa sphaeroides spec. nov. and Sporomusa ovata spec. nov.

A new genus of strictly anaerobic, gram-negative, banana-shaped bacteria is described, and on the basis of the DNA-DNA homology values obtained, the shape of the spores and some other properties, the isolated strains were assigned to two species.

Acetonema longum gen.nov.sp.nov., an H2/CO2 acetogenic bacterium from the termite, Pterotermes occidentis

It is proposed herewith that a new genus, Acetonema, be established with strain APO-1 as the type strain of the new species,Acetonema longum, which may contribute to the nutrition of P. occidentis by forming acetate, propionate and butyrate, compounds which are important carbon and energy sources for termites.

Description of Propionispira arcuata sp. nov., isolated from a methanogenic reactor of cattle waste, reclassification of Zymophilus raffinosivorans and Zymophilus paucivorans as Propionispira raffinosivorans comb. nov. and Propionispira paucivorans comb. nov. and emended description of the genus Pro

It was shown by phylogenetic and phenotypic examination of the type strains of related species, including the second species of the genus Zymophilus, Zymphilus paucivorans, that the two genera should be combined and that thetwo species should be transferred to the genus Propionspira, as Propionispira raffinosvorans comb.

Psychrosinus fermentans gen. nov., sp. nov., a lactate-fermenting bacterium from near-freezing oxycline waters of a meromictic Antarctic lake.

A novel, obligately anaerobic, fermentative bacterium isolated from a 9-m water sample from permanently ice-covered, meromictic Lake Fryxell, Antarctica is proposed as the type strain of a novel genus and species of psychrophilic-fermenting bacteria, Psychrosinus fermentans gen. nov.

Pelosinus defluvii sp. nov., isolated from chlorinated solvent-contaminated groundwater, emended description of the genus Pelosinus and transfer of Sporotalea propionica to Pelosinus propionicus comb. nov.

Two anaerobic bacterial strains isolated from chlorinated solvent-contaminated groundwater were found to be identical in phenotypic properties and shared high pairwise 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, and it is proposed that strains SHI-1(T) and SHi-2 are assigned to a novel species of the genus Pelosinus.

Geobacter pickeringii sp. nov., Geobacter argillaceus sp. nov. and Pelosinus fermentans gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from subsurface kaolin lenses.

Based on phylogenetic analysis and physiological tests, strain R7(T) is proposed to represent a novel genus and species, Pelosinus fermentans gen. nov., in the Sporomusa-Pectinatus-Selenomonas group.

Negativicoccus succinicivorans gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from human clinical samples, emended description of the family Veillonellaceae and description of Negativicutes classis nov., Selenomonadales ord. nov. and Acidaminococcaceae fam. nov. in the bacterial phylum Firmicutes.

It is proposed that this family is a class-level taxon in the phylum Firmicutes, for which the name Negativicutes classis nov. is proposed, based on the Gram-negative type of cell wall of its members, with the type order Selenomonadales ord.
