Comment
Versatile heterotrophic, acetogenic anaerobe.
Grows on H2/CO2, sugars, two-carbon compounds (glyoxylate, glycolate, and oxalate), lactate, pyruvate, short-chain fatty acids, and methoxylated aromatic compounds.
Besides CO2, electron acceptors include nitrate, nitrite, thiosulfate, and dimethylsulfoxide.
