Abstract

Abstract

A new moderately thermophilic clostridium, , was isolated from cellulolytic enrichment cultures inoculated with horse manure. This organism forms subterminal spores, and the sporangium is not swollen. From glucose, the organism produces butyrate, CO, and H and minor amounts of acetate and lactate. Yeast extract is required for good growth. The temperature range for growth is between 26 and 61.5°C. The pH range is between 5.8 and 9.0. The guanine-plus-cytosine content is 37 mol%. The type strain is C. JW171K (= DSM 4928).
