A novel anaerobic, chemo-organotrophic bacterium, designated VNs36(T), was isolated from a well that collected water from a deep saline aquifer used for underground gas storage at a depth of 830 m in the Paris Basin, France. Cells were curved motile rods or vibrios (3.0-5.0x0.5 microm). Strain VNs36(T) grew at temperatures between 20 and 50 degrees C (optimum 37 degrees C) and at pH values between 5.0 and 9.0 (optimum 6.9). It did not require salt for growth, but tolerated up to 20 g NaCl l(-1… CONTINUE READING
