Abstract

A novel facultatively autotrophic bacterium, designated strain sk43H, was isolated from water of a freshwater lake in Japan. Cells of the isolate were curved rods, motile and Gram-reaction-negative. Strain sk43H was facultatively anaerobic and autotrophic growth was observed only under anaerobic conditions. The isolate oxidized thiosulfate, elemental sulfur and hydrogen as sole energy sources for autotrophic growth and could utilize nitrate as an electron acceptor. Growth was observed at 8–32 °C (optimum 25 °C) and 6.4–7.6 (optimum pH 6.7–6.9). Optimum growth of the isolate occurred at NaCl concentrations of less than 50 mM. The G+C content of genomic DNA was around 67 mol%. The fatty acid profile of strain sk43H when grown on acetate under aerobic conditions was characterized by the presence of C and summed feature 3 (Cω7 and/or iso-C 2-OH) as the major components. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the strain was a member of the class showing highest sequence similarity with G5G6 (94.7 %) and AcBE2-1 (94.3 %). Phylogenetic analyses were also performed using genes involved in sulfur oxidation. On the basis of its phylogenetic and phenotypic properties, strain sk43H ( = DSM 22779  = NBRC 105852) represents a novel species of a new genus, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed.
