  • More than 40 isolates of a novel, ubiquitous, proteolytic, moderately alkaliphilic, thermophilic obligate anaerobe were obtained from geothermally and anthropogenically heated environments and mesobiotic environments located on three continents. Whole-cell protein sodium dodecyl sulfate gel electrophoresis revealed that most of these organisms are very similar. Eight of the isolates were characterized in detail; this analysis included 16S ribosomal DNA sequence analysis. The cells of those… CONTINUE READING
