A novel hyperthermophilic, anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic bacterium, designated strain HB-8(T), was isolated from the tube of Alvinella pompejana tubeworms collected from the wall of an actively venting sulfide structure on the East Pacific Rise at 13° N. The cells were Gram-negative rods, approximately 1.0-1.5 µm long and 0.5 µm wide. Strain HB-8(T) grew between 65 and 80 °C (optimum 75 °C), 15 and 35 g NaCl l(-1) (optimum 30 g l(-1)) and pH 4.5 and 8.5 (optimum pH 6.0). Generation time… CONTINUE READING
