A novel moderately thermophilic, microaerobic to anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic bacterium, designated strain CRT, was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent site at 36 degrees N on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Cells were Gram-negative, non-motile rods. The organism grew at 45-65 degrees C and pH 6.5-7.4, with optimum growth at 55 degrees C and pH 6.9-7.1. The NaCl range for growth was 5-50 g l(-1) (optimum 30 g l(-1)). Strain CRT was an obligate chemolithoautotroph, growing with H2 as energy… CONTINUE READING
