Comment
Strictly anaerobic, non-fermentative, chemoorganotrophic sulfate-reducer that oxidizes organic substrates completely to CO2.
Sulfate, sulfite and thiosulfate serve as terminal electron acceptors and are reduced to H2S, but sulfur, fumarate and nitrate cannot be utilized.
The following compounds are utilized as electron donors and carbon sources: formate, acetate, propionate, butyrate, iso-butyrate, 2-methylbutyrate, valerate, iso-valerate, and higher fatty acids up to 18 carbon atoms.
Growth on formate does not require an additional organic carbon source.
Isolated from a ditch sediment collected near the University of Konstanz, Germany.
