A novel extremely thermophilic bacterium was isolated from a shallow marine hydrothermal vent environment (depth, 22 m) in Tachibana Bay, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. The cells of this organism were gram-negative rods. Growth occurred at temperatures between 50 and 85 degrees C (optimum temperature, 80 degrees C; doubling time at optimum temperature, 90 min), at pH 5.5 and 9.0 (optimum pH, 7.0), and in the presence of 1 and 5% NaCl (optimum NaCl concentration, 3%). The new isolate was an aerobic… CONTINUE READING
