A strictly anaerobic, gram-positive, sporeforming, rod-like, motile bacterium was enriched from rabbit feces, and isolated using carbon monoxide as sole source of energy and carbon. The isolate metabolizes CO with ethanol, acetate and CO2 as end-products. Other substrates used as carbon and energy sources include CO2 plus H2, pyruvate, xylose, arabinose, fructose, rhamnose, and l-glutamate. The optimum temperature for growth is 37°C. The optimum pH for chemolithotrophic growth lies around 5.8… CONTINUE READING
