FISH image of activated sludge. Yellow = spb280 positive cells (Bet65); Green = all other bacterial cells (EUBmix). Bar, 10 microns. - Source:1Aerobic heterotroph
In situ characterisation is consistent with the GAO phenotype 1. Note that the Bet65 probe used for characterisation only hits a single sequence in the genus - therefore it is unclear if the description is relevant to the whole genus. The probe hybridised with short rods in clusters.
