Abstract A phenol-degrading thermophilic bacterium, designated Bacillus sp. A2, was isolated from a water and mud sample from a hot spring in Iceland. The aerobic isolate grew optimally on phenol at 65 °C. At 70 °C, 85% of the optimal growth rate was still observed. No growth was observed at 40 °C and 75 °C. Bacillus sp. A2 is a gram-positive spore-forming rod. According to 16S rDNA analysis Bacillus sp. A2 is closely related to Bacillus stearothermophilus, Bacillus kaustophilus and Bacillus… CONTINUE READING
