Thermodesulfotobacterium commune is an extremely thermophilic, anaerobic, sulfate-reducing bacterium that grows optimally at 70 °C and neutral pH. Total lipids comprise about 6.7% of the cell dry weight and consist of 17.1% neutral lipids. 12.6% glycolipids and 70.3% phospholipids. Hydrophobic residues of the glycolipids and phospholipids were released by acid methanolysis and analysed by thin-layer and gas chromatography, infrared and mass spectrometry and by chemical analyses. The hydrophobic… CONTINUE READING
