Physiological tests, redetermination of G+C values with HPLC and DNA-DNA hybridization were used to determine the taxonomic affiliation of “Spirillum” 5175. This facultatively sulfur-reducing bacterium was compared to the type strains of the phenotypically most similar species Wolinella succinogenes and Campylobacter sputorum biovar bubulus. In addition to morphology, the following physiological properties were in common: use of elemental sulfur, nitrate, nitrite, aspartate, fumarate or malate… CONTINUE READING
