A novel, extremely thermophilic, chemolithoautotrophic bacterium was isolated from the submarine hydrothermal system off the beach of Lihir Island, Papua New Guinea. Cells of the organism were curved rods of about 1.5-3 microm in length and 0.5-0.8 microm in width. The bacterium grew within the temperature range 50-80 degrees C (optimum around 75 degrees C) and was an obligate anaerobe. Molecular hydrogen was used as the sole electron donor by the bacterium, and nitrate or elemental sulfur… CONTINUE READING
