A novel methane-oxidizing bacterium, strain HTM55(T), was isolated from subsurface hot aquifer water from a Japanese gold mine. Strain HTM55(T) was a Gram-negative, aerobic, motile, coccoid bacterium with a single polar flagellum and the distinctive intracytoplasmic membrane arrangement of a type I methanotroph. Strain HTM55(T) was a moderately thermophilic, obligate methanotroph that grew on methane and methanol at 37-65 °C (optimum 55-60 °C). The isolate grew at pH 5.2-7.5 (optimum 5.8-6.3… CONTINUE READING
