A novel, extremely thermophilic bacterium was isolated from a shallow marine hydrothermal vent at depth of 22 m in Tachibana Bay, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. Cells were gram-negative, non-spore-forming, motile rods. Growth was observed between 52 and 78 °C (optimum 70 °C), pH 5 and 8 (optimum pH 7) and 0–4.5% NaCl (optimum 1.0%). The isolate was a strictly aerobic heterotroph utilizing yeast extract and trypticase peptone. The G+C content of the genomic DNA is 69 mol%. Analysis of 16S rDNA… CONTINUE READING
