General Information: Country: USA; Environment: Fresh water; Isolation: Deep subsurface location at the Piceance Basin, Colorado, USA; Temp: Thermophile; Temp: 60C. Thermoanaerobacter sp. (strain X513) is an anaerobic, extreme thermophilic Gram-positive bacterium isolated by anaerobic enrichment culture from a deep subsurface sample (2000 m below the surface) taken from a core hole at the Piceance Basin, Colorado, USA. It can use a variety of electron donors, including glucose, acetate, hydrogen and xylose while reducing iron, chromium and uranium at 60 degrees.
