General Information: Rod-shaped thermophilic marine bacterium that metabolizes many simple and complex carbohydrates including glucose, sucrose, starch, cellulose, and xylan. This hyperthermophilic organism was originally isolated from a geothermal marine area near Vulcano, Italy. Thermotoga maritima is a hyperthermophile with an optimum growth temperature of 80 degrees C. This organism, a member of the Thermotogales, has the characteristic sheath-like envelope which extends beyond the cell wall. These organisms are heterotrophs are able to use a wide range of carbohydrates.
