Abstract

A novel type of bacterium has been isolated from various geothermally heated locales on the sea floor. The organisms are strictly anaerobic, rod-shaped, fermentative, extremely thermophilic and grow between 55 and 90° C with an optimum of around 80° C. Cells show a unique sheathlike structure and monotrichous flagellation. By 16S rRNA sequencing they clearly belong to the eubacteria, although no ...
