Two novel thermophilic bacterial strains, with an optimum growth temperature of between 50 and 60 degrees C, were isolated from the Chi-ban Hot Springs in eastern Taiwan. Strains CB-225 and CB-226(T) were aerobic, thermophilic, non-sporulating, yellow-pigmented heterotrophic organisms. These strains exhibited an unusual denitrification reaction, reducing nitrite, but not nitrate, with the production of N2O only. On the basis of a phylogenetic analysis of 16S rDNA sequences, DNA-DNA similarity… CONTINUE READING
