A novel mesophilic, facultatively anaerobic, sulfur-oxidizing bacterial strain, designated gps61(T), was isolated from a surface rock sample collected from the hydrothermal field of Suiyo Seamount on the Izu-Bonin Arc in the Western Pacific Ocean. Cells of the isolate were rod-shaped with a single sheathed polar flagellum. Neither extensive internal membranes nor storage materials were present in the cells. In a 20 % CO(2) atmosphere, strain gps61(T) grew using thiosulfate, sulfur or… CONTINUE READING
