Description Cells are Gram-negative rods of 0.2–0.35 mm in width; their length is variable. Temperature range for growth is 40–70°C, with optimum growth at 60°C. pH range for growth is between pH 5.8 and 7.8, with optimum growth between pH 6.8 and 7.0. Optimum salinity is 2.5%; growth occurs between 0.1 and 5.0% NaCl. Able to ferment pyruvate, Casamino acids and proteinaceous substrates. Capable of lithoheterotrophic growth with molecular hydrogen or acetate, in the presence of nitrate. In the course of denitrification, ammonium is produced. Yeast extract is required for growth. DNA G+C content is 42.5 mol%. Isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal-vent chimney at 14°459 N, 44°599W on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The type strain is LF13T (=DSM 13497T =VKM B-2286T). [details]
