Detection of a Culturable Hyperthermophilic Archaeon of the Genus Sulfophobococcus in an Anaerobic Digestor Operated in a Thermophilic Regime


A stable association of hyperthermophilic microorganisms (82°C), which contained mostly cocci and a minor amount of non-spore-forming rods, was obtained from the digested sludge of an anaerobic digestor used to process municipal wastewater under thermophilic conditions (50°C). PCR amplification of 16S rRNA genes using total DNA isolated from this… (More)
