Abstract

A novel thermophilic, microaerophilic, sulfur-reducing bacterium designated strain St55B was isolated from a sulfide chimney in the hydrothermal field of Suiyo Seamount (Izu-Bonin Arc, Western Pacific). Cells of the isolate were rod-shaped and tended to form a chain-link circular structure (a rotund body) at exponential phase under good growth conditions. The isolate was a chemoheterotroph requiring yeast extract for growth. Although strain St55B used oxygen as an electron acceptor, it could not form colonies in an oxygen concentration of more than 5 % (v/v). The isolate also used nitrate, nitrite or elemental sulfur in the absence of oxygen. A phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed that the isolate was closely related to , belonging to the phylum ‘’ (sequence similarity 99·5 %). However, strain St55B differed from in terms of usage of electron donors, cellular fatty acid profile and DNA G+C content. In addition, a DNA–DNA hybridization test indicated low relatedness between the isolate and . For the reasons given above, the name sp. nov. is proposed for strain St55B (=NBRC 100063=DSM 15757).
