A novel thermophilic and sulfur-reducing bacterium, strain S304T, was isolated from the Taketomi submarine hot spring shallow hydrothermal field located at southern part of the Yaeyama Archipelago, Japan. The cells were non-motile short thick rods or oval cocci 1.1–2.7 μm in length and 1.1–1.9 μm in width. Strain S304T was an obligately anaerobic heterotroph and sulfur reduction stimulates growth. Growth was observed between 50–65°C (optimum 60°C), pH 6.2–8.0 (optimum pH 7.1), 1.0–6.0% NaCl… CONTINUE READING
