A new thermophilic, strictly halophilic, anaerobic, non-sporulating rod-shaped bacterium, measuring 0.5 x 3.0-8.0 microns and designated strain CTT3T, was isolated from a solar saltern. Strain CTT3T stained Gram-negative, was motile by means of laterally inserted flagella, had a genome G + C content of 33 mol% and grew optimally at 65 degrees C and pH 7.0 with 5% NaCl. The strain also grew readily at 70 degrees C in the presence of 15% NaCl. Strain CTT3T fermented cellobiose, fructose, glucose… CONTINUE READING
