A novel facultatively autotrophic bacterium, strain BSN1T was isolated from sediment of a freshwater lake in Japan. The cells were rod-shaped, motile and Gram-stain-negative. As sole energy sources for autotrophic growth, the strain oxidized thiosulfate, elemental sulfur and hydrogen. Strain BSN1T was a facultative anaerobe utilizing nitrate as an electron acceptor. Growth was observed at temperatures lower than 34 °C, and the optimum growth was observed at 30-32 °C. The range of pH for growth…

Sulfuriferula multivorans gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from a freshwater lake, reclassification of 'Thiobacillus plumbophilus' as Sulfuriferula plumbophilus sp. nov., and description of Sulfuricellaceae fam. nov. and Sulfuricellales ord. nov.

A sulfur-oxidizing bacterium, strain TTN(T), was isolated from a Thioploca sample obtained from a freshwater lake in Japan and represents a novel species of a novel genus, for which the name Sulfuriferula multivorans gen. nov. is proposed.

Sulfuricystis multivorans gen. nov., sp. nov. and Sulfuricystis thermophila sp. nov., facultatively autotropic sulfur-oxidizing bacteria isolated from a hot spring, and emended description of the genus Rugosibacter

Phylogenetic analysis indicated that these strains do not belong to any existing genera, and on the basis of phenotypic and genomic characteristics, Sulfuricystis multivorans gen. nov. are proposed, with type strains of J5BT and M52T, respectively.

Oryzomicrobium terrae gen. nov., sp. nov., of the family Rhodocyclaceae isolated from paddy soil.

Based on the discrete phylogenetic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic traits together with results of comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain TPP412T is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus in the family Rhodocyclaceae, for which the name Oryzomicrobium terrae gen. nov. is proposed.

Genomes of Neutrophilic Sulfur-Oxidizing Chemolithoautotrophs Representing 9 Proteobacterial Species From 8 Genera

Two sulfur oxidizers that potentially represent two novel species were isolated and characterized, and two strains belonging to the families Thiobacillaceae and Sterolibacteriaceae were observed to harbor genes encoding ArxAB, a type of arsenite oxidase that has been identified in a limited number of bacteria.

DNRA and Denitrification Coexist over a Broad Range of Acetate/N-NO3− Ratios, in a Chemostat Enrichment Culture

Interestingly, in a broad range of Ac/N ratios a dual limitation of acetate and nitrate occurred with co-occurrence of DNRA bacteria and denitrifiers, as well as the differences in electron donor and acceptor affinities.

A strictly anaerobic betaproteobacterium Georgfuchsia toluolica gen. nov., sp. nov. degrades aromatic compounds with Fe(III), Mn(IV) or nitrate as an electron acceptor.

Strain G5G6 is the first toluene-degrading, iron-reducing bacterium that does not belong to the Geobacteraceae within the Deltaproteobacteria, and is proposed as Georgfuchsia toluolica, a novel taxon of the Betaproteinobacteria.

Gram-Negative Mesophilic Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria

The utilization of polysaccharides or polypeptides, such as has been observed with the extremely thermophilic sulfate-reducing archaebacterium Archaeoglobus (Stetter, 1988; Stetter et al., 1987), has not been reported for mesophobic sulfate reducers.

Molecular Analysis of the Diversity of Sulfate-Reducing and Sulfur-Oxidizing Prokaryotes in the Environment, Using aprA as Functional Marker Gene

The new aprA gene-targeting assay was applied in comparison with the 16S rRNA gene-based analysis to investigate the microbial diversity of the sulfur cycle in sediment, seawater, and manganese crust samples from four study sites in the area of the Lesser Antilles volcanic arc, Caribbean Sea.

Dissimilatory Fe(III) and Mn(IV)-reducing Prokaryotes

Dissimilatory Fe(III) reduction is the process in which microorganisms transfer electrons to external ferric iron [Fe(III)], reducing it to ferrous iron [Fe(II)] without assimilating the iron. A wide
