Four anaerobic syntrophic acetate-oxidizing bacteria, the thermotolerant strains Re1(T), Re2, T1 and T2, were isolated from two different mesophilic methanogenic systems. The strains originate from sludge of a continuously stirred laboratory-scale reactor containing high levels of ammonium and from a high ammonium enrichment culture. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis confirmed that the strains belong to the Firmicutes-Clostridia class. The most closely related species to strains Re1(T… CONTINUE READING
