A Gram-stain-positive thermophilic bacterium, designated strain Nis3(T), was isolated from compost. The strain grew at 23-57 °C (optimum, 50 °C); no growth was observed below 15 or above 60 °C. The pH range for growth was 5.9-8.8 (optimum, 7.0); no growth was observed below pH 5.4 or above pH 9.3. The DNA G+C content of strain Nis3(T) was 63.4 mol%. The… CONTINUE READING
