General Information: Environment: Deep sea, Fresh water, Hydrothermal vent; Isolation: Walls of an active deep-sea hydrothermal; Temp: Thermophile; Temp: 60 - 80C; Country: Pacific Ocean. This is a thermophilic, anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic bacterium isolated from the walls of an active deep-sea hydrothermal vent chimney on the East Pacific Rise. This organism grows on mineral salts in the presence of carbon dioxide and hydrogen, reducing nitrate or sulfur to ammonium or hydrogen sulfide, respectively.
