Description

The profile and description are based on physiological information associated with the species Acetobacteroides hydrogenigenes - which is the only isolate that classifies to the Blvii28 wastewater sludge group. The isolate is a strictly anaerobic fermenter 1. Substrates fermented include some carbohydrates (arabinose, glucose, galactose, mannose, maltose, lactose, glycogen, pectin and starch), tryptone and yeast extract 1. Amino acids and fatty acids are not utilized for growth 1. Nitrate, sulfate, sulfite, thiosulfate, elemental sulfur and Fe(III) nitrilotriacetate are not used as electron acceptors 1. In pure culture, cells appear as straight rods 1.
