An obligately anaerobic, spore-forming, acidophilic sulfate-reducing bacterium, strain SJ4T, was isolated from an acid mining effluent decantation pond sediment sample (pH around 3.0). Cells were Gram negative, non-motile, curved rods occurring singly. Strain SJ4T grew at pH 3.6–5.5 with an optimum at pH 5.2. Strain SJ4T utilized H2, lactate, pyruvate, glycerol, glucose, and fructose as electron donors. Lactate and glucose were weakly used. Sulfate was used as electron acceptors, but not… CONTINUE READING
