Desulfurispora thermophila gen. nov., sp. nov., a thermophilic, spore-forming sulfate-reducer isolated from a sulfidogenic fluidized-bed reactor.

Abstract

A thermophilic, Gram-positive, endospore-forming, sulfate-reducing bacterium was isolated from a sulfidogenic fluidized-bed reactor treating acidic metal- and sulfate-containing water. The strain, designated RA50E1(T), was rod-shaped and motile. The strain grew at 40-67 degrees C (optimum growth at 59-61 degrees C) and pH 6.4-7.9 (optimum growth at pH 7.0-7… (More)
