Abstract

Summary: A Leptothrix strain was found to be a motile aerobe which did not ferment sugars but utilized some of them for growth. It required cystine and a source of molybdenum or vanadium, and preferred ornithine or arginine as its N-source. Liquid media of defined chemical composition have been developed for its cultivation, and growth characteristics in these media determined.
