A bacterial isolate, with an optimum growth temperature of about 50 degrees C, was recovered from a domestic hot water tank in Coimbra. Phylogenetic analysis using 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that strain CLN-1T is a member of the beta-Proteobacteria and represents a new species of the genus Tepidimonas. The major fatty acids of strain CLN-1T are 16:0, 17:0 cyclo and 16:1 omega7c. Ubiquinone 8 is the major respiratory quinone, the major polar lipids are phosphatidylethanolamine, and… CONTINUE READING
