A novel species of Fe(III)-reducing bacterium, designated strain OSK6(T), belonging to the genus Geobacter, was isolated from lotus field mud in Japan. Strain OSK6(T) was isolated using a solid medium containing acetate, Fe(III)-nitrilotriacetate (NTA) and gellan gum. The isolate is a strictly anaerobic, gram-negative, motile, straight rod-shaped bacterium, 0.6-1.9 µm long and 0.2-0.4 µm wide. The growth of the isolate occurred at 20-40 °C with optima of 30-37 °C and pH 6.5-7.5 in the presence…

A novel Fe(III)-reducing bacterium was isolated from a forest soil sample using a liquid medium containing acetate and ferrihydrite as electron donor and electron acceptor and is believed to represent a novel species of the genus Geobacter.

Geothermobacter hydrogeniphilus sp. nov., a mesophilic, iron(III)-reducing bacterium from seafloor/subseafloor environments in the Pacific Ocean, and emended description of the genus Geothermobacter.

Based on phylogenetic and phylogenomic analyses in addition to physiological and biochemical characteristics, both strains were found to represent a novel species within the genus Geothermobacter, for which the name GeotherMobacter hydrogeniphilus sp.

Isolation and Polyphasic Characterization of Desulfuromonas versatilis sp. Nov., an Electrogenic Bacteria Capable of Versatile Metabolism Isolated from a Graphene Oxide-Reducing Enrichment Culture

Based on the physiological and genetic uniqueness, and wide metabolic capability, strain NIT-T3 is proposed as a type strain of ‘Desulfuromonas versatilis’ sp.

Description of Three Novel Members in the Family Geobacteraceae, Oryzomonas japonicum gen. nov., sp. nov., Oryzomonas sagensis sp. nov., and Oryzomonas ruber sp. nov.

It is concluded that strains Red96T, Red100T, and Red88T represented three novel species of a novel genus in the family Geobacteraceae, for which the names Oryzomonas japonicum gen. nov. are proposed.

Effects of Aerobic Growth on the Fatty Acid and Hydrocarbon Compositions of Geobacter bemidjiensis BemT.

It is concluded that anaerobically-grown G. bemidjiensis BemT followed by aerobiosis were enhanced in growth, fatty acid turnover, and de novo fatty acid synthesis.

Genome-Based Taxonomic Rearrangement of the Order Geobacterales Including the Description of Geomonas azotofigens sp. nov. and Geomonas diazotrophica sp. nov.

This taxonomic reassignment using currently available genome sequences, along with the description of two novel paddy soil-isolated strains, separated the species Geobacter luticola from other known genera and placed the genus Oryzomonas into the family ‘Pseudopelobacteraceae’; thus, a novel genus Geomobilimonas is proposed, and the family’s name was emended.

Isolation of microorganisms involved in reduction of crystalline iron(III) oxides in natural environments

High-throughput Illumina sequencing and clone library analysis revealed that the enrichment cultures on each of the ferric iron oxides contained bacteria belonging to the Deltaproteobacteria (mainly Geobacteraceae), followed by Firmicutes and Chloroflexi, which also comprised most of the operational taxonomic units (OTUs) identified.

Strain FRC-32(T) was metabolically versatile and, unlike its closest relative, G. uraniireducens, was capable of utilizing formate, butyrate and butanol as electron donors and soluble ferric iron and elemental sulfur as electron acceptors, and is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Geobacter.

Isolation of Geobacter species from diverse sedimentary environments

The isolation of five new strains which could obtain energy for growth by dissimilatory Fe(III) reduction from freshwater aquatic sediments, a pristine deep aquifer, and a petroleum-contaminated shallow aquifer demonstrates that Geobacter species are widely distributed in a diversity of sedimentary environments in which Fe( III) reduction is an important process.
