Nomenclatural status
Validly published under the ICNP


Grows under the aerobic conditions with the specific host archaeon Metallosphaera sedula strain MJ1HA (=JCM 33617). Growth
occurs at 60–75 °C (optimum, 65–70 °C) and pH 1.0–4.0 (optimum, pH 2.5). Under optimal growth conditions, doubling time is
9.6h. Growth occurs with elemental sulphur or proteinaceous substances in a co-culture with the host archaeon, strain MJ1HA.
DNA G+C content is 24.9mol% (determined from the genome sequence).
The type strain is MJ1(T) (=JCM 33616(T)=DSM 111728(T)). The strain was isolated from a fluid of terrestrial acidic hot spring in
Oku-shiobara, Tochigi, Japan.
