The starvation survivability of seven Thermococcus strains isolated from four Japanese oil reservoirs was compared with that of Thermococcus strains from marine hydrothermal fields. 16S rDNA analyses showed the isolates to be closely related to Thermococcus litoralis. Growth of the isolates was dependent on amino acids, which were present at low… CONTINUE READING
