Description

Aerobic, chemolithoheterotrophic bacteria 2. In the presence of an organic substrate, thiosulfate is oxidized to sulfate and used as an alternative energy source 2. Carboxylic acids and sometimes amino acids are used for growth and energy, but carbohydrates are not 2 3. Their in situ physiology in activated sludge has not been determined.
