Thermus scotoductus SA-01

Names Thermus scotoductus SA-01
Accession numbers NC_014974, NC_014975
Background Thermus scotoductus (strain ATCC 700910 / SA-01) is a thermophilic, facultative anaerobe, facultatively mixotrophic sulfur-oxidizing, Gram-positive bacterium isolated from fissure water in the Witwatersrand Supergroup at a depth of 3.2 km below surface in a South African gold mine. T. scotoductus is capable of coupling the oxidation of organic substrates to reduction of a wide range of electron acceptors, including nitrate, Fe(III), Mn(IV) or S(0) as terminal electron acceptors. Cell suspensions are capable of reducing Co(III)- EDTA, Cr(VI), U(VI), Tc(VII) and the quinone-containing compound anthraquinone-2,6-isulfonate. The optimum temperature for growth and Fe(III) reduction is approximately 65 degrees and the optimum pH is 6.5 to 7.0. (Adapted from: (HAMAP: THESS)
