Metabolic and phylogenetic diversity of cultivated anaerobic microorganisms from acidic continental hot springs and deep-sea hydrothermal vents was studied by molecular and microbiological methods. Anaerobic organotrophic enrichment cultures growing at pH 3.5–4.0 and 60 or 85°C with organic energy sources were obtained from samples of acidic hot springs of Kamchatka Peninsula (Pauzhetka, Moutnovski Volcano, Uzon Caldera) and Kunashir Island (South Kurils) as well as from the samples of chimneys… CONTINUE READING
