Abstract

A novel anaerobic, thermophilic, alkalitolerant bacterium, strain 2204, was isolated from a hot spring of the Baikal Lake region. The cells of strain 2204 were straight rods of variable length, Gram-positive with an S-layer, motile with one to two lateral flagella, and often formed aggregates of 3–15 cells. The isolate was shown to be an obligate anaerobe oxidizing CO and producing equimolar quantities of H and CO according to the equation CO+HO→CO+H. No organic substrates were used as energy sources. For lithotrophic growth on CO, 0·2 g acetate or yeast extract l was required but did not support growth in the absence of CO. Growth was observed in the temperature range 37–68 °C, the optimum being 55 °C. The pH range for growth was 6·7–9·5, the optimum pH being 8·0. The generation time under optimal conditions was 1·3 h. The DNA G+C content was 45 mol%. Penicillin, erythromycin, streptomycin, rifampicin, vancomycin and tetracycline completely inhibited both growth and CO utilization by strain 2204. Thus, isolate 2204 was found to be the first known moderately thermophilic and alkalitolerant H-producing anaerobic carboxydotroph. The novel bacterium fell within the cluster of the family within the low-G+C-content Gram-positive bacteria, where it formed a separate branch. On the basis of morphological, physiological and phylogenetic features, strain 2204 should be assigned to a novel genus and species, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is strain 2204 (=DSM 17129=VKM B-2283=JCM 13258).
