Background Oceanithermus profundus (strain DSM 14977 / NBRC 100410 / VKM B-2274 / 506) is an moderately thermophilic, organotrophic, microaerophilic, facultatively chemolithotrophic, Gram-positive bacterium isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent site at 13 degrees N in the East Pacific Rise. Cells are Gram-negative, non-motile rods. The organism grows in the temperature range between 40 and 68 degrees Celsius, with an optimum at 60 degrees Celsius, and in the pH range is between 5.5-8.4, with an optimum around pH 7.5. The NaCl concentration for growth is in the range 10-50 g/l, with an optimum at 30 g/l. O. profundus grows chemoorganoheterotrophically with carbohydrates, proteinaceous substrates, organic acids and alcohols using oxygen or nitrate as electron acceptor. Alternatively, it is able to grow lithoheterotrophically with molecular hydrogen as the energy source. (Adapted from PMID: 12807196). (EBI Integr8)
