Comment
Grows in the presence of oxygen while oxidizing sulfide, elemental sulfur, sulfite and polysulfide to sulfate, where mainly thiosulfate was formed from elemental sulfur.
Sulfate, sulfite and thiosulfate serve as electron acceptors and are reduced to H2S, but not elemental sulfur, malate, fumarate.
Nitrate also served as electron acceptor and was reduced to ammonia.
Acetate, valerate, higher fatty acids, succinate, fumarate, malate, sugars are not utilized.
Requires 4-aminobenzoic acid as growth factor.
Converts not only pyruvate but also alcohols via methylmalonyl-CoA pathway in the absence of sulfate.
The temperature range for growth is between 10 deg C and 43 deg C, with an optimum at 39 deg C and the pH range for growth is between 6.0 and 8.6.
Isolated from anaerobic mud of a village ditch in Lindhorst near Hannover, Germany in 1982.
