I am searching for thermophilic organic sulphur oxidizing bacteria.

If anyone knows this kind of bacteria, please reply

:huh:

if you mean organothophic & sulfur-oxidising, then Sulfolobus solfataricus is one candidate for you!it's not a bacterium though, strictly speaking, but an archea, more specifically a member of the crenarchaeota.

aerobe
55-87C
lithoorganothroph
pH 1-6

Thanks Mike

Actually I am looking for microorganism that degrades sulfur-organic compounds such as dimethylsulfide at high temperature. :)

I think a good start would be to look at the work of Pieter Visscher; he might have gotten some stuff like this out of his PhD. I did my PhD on methylotrophic oxidation of MSA (Thompson et al., 1995, AEM), then a postdoc looking at DMS/DMSP/MT. I can't recall anything in the literature back then pointing to thermophillic organosulfur oxidizers, but I have been out of the field for a while... I only know of thermopillic anaerobes that reduce DMS.

Hi

I know nothing about the field, bu try getting in touch with one of the people at the University of Waikato Thermophile Research Unit http://bio.waikato.a...itCentres.shtml, they can probably help as they do this sort of stuff all the time.
