Characterization of Comamonas thiooxidans sp. nov., and Comparison of Thiosulfate Oxidation with Comamonas testosteroni and Comamonas composti


Comamonas thiooxidans (strain S23T) capable of oxidizing thiosulfate under a mixotrophic growth condition was isolated from a sulfur spring. DNA–DNA homology study showed 55% similarity with Comamonas testosteroni KCTC2990T and 52% with Comamonas composti LMG24008T, the nearest phylogenetic relative (16S rRNA sequence similarity <97%). Comparative genomic… (More)
