Brockia lithotrophica

provided by wikipedia EN

Brockia lithotrophica is a thermophilic bacterium from the genus of Brockia which has been isolated from a sediment-water mixture from a hot spring in Uzon Caldera in Russia.[1][3][4][5] This bacterium is rod shaped, spore-forming and obligate anaerobe. It is lithoautotroph and grows on a mineral medium with molecular sulfur, thiosulfate or polysulfide; it has optimal growth temperature in the range of 60 to 65 °C (140 to 149 °F) for pH 6.5, but it is able to grow between 46 °C (115 °F) and 78 °C (172 °F) and pH ranging from 5.5 to 8.5.[6]
