Method Chlorobium limicola forma thiosulfatophilum (ATCC 17092) was grown in a 1-liter continuously stirred tank reactor (800-ml liquid volume) at pH 6.8, 30°C, saturated light intensity, and a gas flow rate of 23.6 ml/min from a gas cylinder blend consisting of 3.9 mol% H(2)S, 9.2 mol% CO(2), 86.4 mol% N(2), and 0.5 mol% H(2).
Comments In the log phase, the rate of elemental sulfur production was at its peak, and the specific growth rate (µ) (see legend to Fig. 3) was equivalent to 0.0422h^-1, which was similar to that previously obtained for C. thiosulfatophilum PM (ref 6 in article). Generation time calculated from G=ln2/k where G is the generation time and k is the growth rate.
