A novel obligately anaerobic, extremely thermophilic, organotrophic bacterium, strain 1445t(T), was isolated from a hot spring on Kunashir Island (Kuril Islands, Russia). Cells were motile rods (0.4-0.5 × 1.0-3.0 µm). The temperature range for growth at pH 7.8 was 46-80 °C, with optimum growth at 65 °C. The pH range for growth at 65 °C was pH 5.7-9.0, with optimum growth at pH 7.8. Growth was not observed at or below 40 °C, at or above 84 °C, at or below pH 5.4 or at or above pH 9.5. The…
