Characteristics of Sulfobacillus acidophilus sp nov and other moderately thermophilic mineral-sulphide-oxidizing bacteria
UNSPECIFIED (1996) Characteristics of Sulfobacillus acidophilus sp nov and other moderately thermophilic mineral-sulphide-oxidizing bacteria. MICROBIOLOGY-UK, 142 (Part 4). pp. 775-783. ISSN 1350-0872Full text not available from this repository.
Several isolates of Gram-positive, acidophilic, moderately thermophilic, ferrous-iron- and mineral-sulphide-oxidizing bacteria were examined to establish unequivocally the characteristics of Sulfobacillus-like bacteria. Two species were evident: Sulfobacillus thermosulfidooxidans with 48-50 mol% G + C and Sulfobacillus acidophilus sp. nov. with 55-57 mol% G + C. Both species grew autotrophically and mixotrophically on ferrous iron, on elemental sulphur in the presence of yeast extract, and heterotrophically on yeast extract. Autotrophic growth on sulphur was consistently obtained only with S. acidophilus.
