Abstract

A strictly anaerobic, nitrate-reducing bacterium, strain LuFRes1, was isolated using resorcinol as sole source of carbon and energy. The strain reduced nitrate to dinitrogen gas and was not able to use oxygen as an alternative electron acceptor. Cells were catalase-negative but superoxide-dismutase-positive. Resorcinol was completely oxidized to CO.16S rRNA sequence analysis revealed a high similarity with sequences of and . Strain LuFRes1(= DSM 12081) is described as a new species of the genus .
