Five psychrophilic sulphate-reducing bacteria (strains ASv26, LSv21, PSv29, LSv54 and LSv514) isolated from Arctic sediments were examined for their adaptation to permanently low temperatures. All strains grew at -1.8 degrees C, the freezing point of sea water, but their optimum temperature for growth (T(opt)) were 7 degrees C (PSv29), 10 degrees C (ASv26, LSv54) and 18 degrees C (LSv21, LSv514). Although T(opt) was considerably above the in situ temperatures of their habitats (-1.7 degrees C… CONTINUE READING
