Description Cells have a mean length of 2.5 mm and a width of approximately 0.6 mm. The temperature range for growth
is 28–40 uC (optimum, 37 uC). The pH range for growth is 5.6–7.6 (optimum, pH 7.0). NaCl in the concentration
range 15–35 g l2l is an absolute growth requirement; optimum growth occurs at 30 g NaCl l2l. Strictly chemolithoautotrophic
growth occurs with molecular hydrogen as an electron donor and with oxygen or nitrate as an
electron acceptor. Nitrate is reduced to N2. Major cellular fatty acids are C18 : 1 (42.3 %), C16 : 1 (30.7%) and C16 : 0
(24.3 %). The G+C content of genomic DNA is 35?5 mol% (HPLC). The type strain, E9I37-1T (=JCM 12458T=DSM 16511T),
was isolated from the Iheya North hydrothermal field inthe Mid-Okinawa Trough, Japan [details]
