A mesophilic, syntrophic acetate-oxidizing bacterium, designated strain Sp3(T), was isolated from sludge from a mesophilic methanogenic digestor operating at a high ammonium concentration (6.4 g L(-1) NH(4)(+)-N). The strain showed acetate-oxidizing ability in cocultivation with a hydrogen-consuming methanogen. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis confirmed that strain Sp3(T) belonged to the Firmicutes-Clostridia class. The most closely related species was Thermacetogenium phaeum (16S… CONTINUE READING
