Abstract

A thermophilic, anaerobic, heterotrophic bacterium, designated 2PyrY55-1, was isolated from the wall of an active hydrothermal white-smoker chimney in the Soria Moria vent field (71° N) at the Mohns Ridge in the Norwegian–Greenland Sea. Cells of the strain were Gram-negative, motile rods that possessed a polar flagellum and a sheath-like outer structure (‘toga’). Growth was observed at 45–70 °C (optimum 65 °C), at pH 5.0–7.5 (optimum pH 5.5) and in 1.5–5.5 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum 2.5 %). The strain grew on pyruvate, complex proteinaceous substrates and various sugars. Cystine and elemental sulfur were used as electron acceptors, and sulfide was then produced. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 27 mol% ( method). Cellular fatty acids included C, C, C 7 and/or iso-C 2-OH, C 9, C 9, C, C 7 and C. Phylogenetic analyses of the 16S rRNA gene showed that the strain belonged to the genus in the family . Based on the phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic data, strain 2PyrY55-1 (=DSM 29778=JCM 30566) is the type strain of a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
