The properties of an extremely thermophilic bacterium isolated from water at a Japanese hot spring and previously named Flavobacterium thermophilum are described. The cells are gram-negative, nonsporulating, aerobic rods containing yellow pigment. The optimum temperature for growth is between 65 and 72 C, the maximum being 85 C and the minimum being 47 C. The guanine plus cytosine content of the deoxyribonucleic acid of the thermophile is 69 mol %. This microorganism is sensitive to various… CONTINUE READING
