Abstract

SUMMARY: A new thermophilic thiobacillus (G+C = 66·2 mol %) has been isolated in pure culture. The temperature optimum for growth was 50°. Heterotrophic growth occurred on nutrient broth, but not on single organic compounds. No -keto- glutarate dehydrogenase was present but unrestricted acetate incorporation took place via the glyoxylate cycle.
