A hyperthermophilic, autotrophic iron and nitrate reducer, strain Su06T, was isolated from an active deep-sea hydrothermal vent chimney on the Endeavour Segment in the north-eastern Pacific Ocean. It was obligately anaerobic, hydrogenotrophic and reduced Fe(III) oxide to magnetite and NO3- to N2. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the strain was more than 97 % similar to other species of the genera Pyrodictium and Hyperthermus. Therefore, overall genome… CONTINUE READING
