Abstract

The DNA of 13 yellow-pigmented strains of the genus , isolated from hot springs in Iceland, had a mean base composition of 60·5 to 65·1 mol % GC. In their growth characteristics and sensitivity to antibiotics, these strains resembled strain . Glutamate, acetate and sucrose, with ammonium ions as a nitrogen source, supported growth. The enzymes of the tricarboxylic acid cycle were present and the glyoxylate cycle was constitutive. The stability of malate dehydrogenase in crude extracts was similar to that of strain .
