A novel moderately thermophilic, microaerobic to anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic bacterium,designated strain CRT, was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent site at 366N on theMid-Atlantic Ridge. Cells were Gram-negative, non-motile rods. The organism grew at 45–65 6Cand pH 6?5–7?4, with optimum growth at 55 6C and pH 6?9–7?1. The NaCl range for growth was5–50 g l”1 (optimum 30 g l”1). Strain CRT was an obligate chemolithoautotroph, growing withH2 as energy source, sulfur, nitrate or oxygen as electron acceptors and CO2 as carbon source.
Hydrogen sulfide and ammonium were the respective products of sulfur and nitrate reduction.
C content of the genomic DNA was 32?1 mol%. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequenceanalysis, this organism was most closely related to Caminibacter hydrogeniphilus (94?9 %similarity). On the basis of phenotypic and phylogenetic data, it is proposed that the isolaterepresents a novel species, Caminibacter profundus sp. nov. The type strain is CRT (=DSM15016T=JCM 11957T). The phylogenetic data also correlate well with the significant phenotypicdifferences between the lineage encompassing the genera Nautilia and Caminibacter andother members of the class ‘Epsilonproteobacteria’. The lineage encompassing the genera Nautiliaand Caminibacter is therefore proposed as a new order, Nautiliales ord. nov., represented bya single family, Nautiliaceae fam. nov.

Comparison of the 16S rRNA gene sequence (1414 bases)with those of members of the domain Bacteria indicatedthat strain CRT belonged to the class ‘Epsilonproteobacteria’and was moderately related to C. hydrogeniphilus (94?9 %similarity) and N. lithotrophica (91?2 % similarity), both ofwhich were isolated from 13uN on the East PacificRise. Strain CRT showed higher sequence similarity(92?3–96?1 %) to a group of clone sequences retrievedfrom material from deep-sea hydrothermal vents on theMid-Atlantic Ridge (VC2.1Bac7, VC2.1Bac17, VC2.1Bac8,
VC2.1Bac30; Reysenbach et al., 2000). Slightly lowersimilarities (91?4–93?7 %) were found to clone sequencesretrieved from South-East Pacific vents (S17sBac14,S17sBac3, S17sBac5; Longnecker & Reysenbach, 2001) andto isolate AM1115 (Alain et al., 2002).
The phylogenetic relatedness of strain CRT to C. hydro-geniphilus is consistent with shared physiological character-istics and the DNA G+C content (Table 1). Both strains aremoderately thermophilic chemolithoautotrophs, growingwith hydrogen as electron donor and elemental sulfur ornitrate as electron acceptors. However, C. hydrogeniphilushas been described as a strictly anaerobic micro-organism,whereas strain CRT is able to grow anaerobically and micro-aerobically at an oxygen concentration of up to 2 %. Theisolate has a narrow pH growth optimum of 6?9–7?1,whereas C. hydrogeniphilus grows optimally at pH 5?5–6?5.
In contrast to C. hydrogeniphilus, which is capable of poorheterotrophic growth on complex organic substrates, strainCRT is a strictly lithotrophic micro-organism. Thus, onthe basis of phylogenetic, morphological and physiological
features, it is proposed that CRT (=DSM 15016T=JCM 11957T) is the type strain of a novel species of Camini-bacter, for which the name Caminibacter profundus sp. nov.
