General Information: Thermophilic sulfur-reducing bacterium. Nautilia can be isolated from the epidermis of the hydrothermal vent worm, Alvinella pompejana and from hydrothermal vent chimneys. These organisms grow chemoautotrophically on hydrogen, sulfur, and CO2. Nautilia profundicola is a thermophilic, hydrogen-oxidizing, sulfur-reducing chemoautotroph that uses the reductive TCA cycle for carbon fixation. It is a member of the deepest branch of the Epsilonproteobacteria and is a model organism of the anaerobic autotrophic Epsilonproteobacteria at hydrothermal vents.
