Thermophilic microorganisms (4001-4014), described as aerobic or facultatively anaerobic, endospore forming with growth optima temperatures in the range of 60 to 80 degrees C, have been isolated from hot marine springs around Ischia and from hydrothermal vents in the gulf of Naples. Mucous colonies are been selected for the recovery of new strains producing… CONTINUE READING
