Abstract

A novel alkalitolerant, sulphate-reducing bacterium (strain RT2) was isolated from alkaline district heating water. Strain RT2 was a motile vibrio (0.5–0.8 μm wide and 1.4–1.9 μm long) and grew at pH 6.9–9.9 (optimum at pH 9.0–9.4) and at 16–47 °C (optimum at 43 °C). The genomic DNA G+C content was 64.7 mol%. A limited number of compounds were used as electron donors with sulphate as electron acceptor, including lactate, pyruvate, formate and hydrogen/acetate. Sulphite and thiosulphate also served as electron acceptors. Based on physiological and genotypic properties, the isolate was considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RT2 (=DSM 16529=JCM 12612). The strain is the first alkali-tolerant member of the genus to be described.
