Thermothrix thiopara did not appear to be stressed at high temperature (72 degrees C). Both the actual and theoretical yields were higher than those of analogous mesophilic sulfur bacteria, and the specific growth rate (mu(max)) was more rapid than that of most autotrophs. The specific growth rate (0.58 h), specific maintenance rate (0.11 h), actual molar… CONTINUE READING
