Metallosphaera sedula gen. and sp. nov. Represents a New Genus
of Aerobic, Metal-Mobilizing, Thermoacidophilic Archaebacteria. Systematic and Applied Microbiology 12, pp. 38-47.
From a solfataric field in Italy three isolates of spherical thermoacidophilic metal-mobilizing archaebacteria were obtained. They are facultative autotrophs. From sulfidic ores they extract metal ions with very high efficiency. They are also vigorous S°-oxidizers. Alternatively, they are able to use heterogeneous organic material such as yeast extract. The isolates grow within a temperature ...
