Anaerobic biological treatment is a frequently applied technology for decontamination of agroindustrial wastewaters by conversion of organic compounds to methane and carbon dioxide. The application of this treatment under thermophilic conditions has increased in recent years. However, when proteins are a major constituent of such wastes, their degradation is often incomplete. Isolation and physiological characterization of novel strains help to explain their role in carbon flow in those anaerobic ecosystems. Anaerobaculum mobile (strain ATCC BAA-54 / DSM 13181 / NGA) is anaerobic, moderately thermophilic, peptide-fermenting, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from an anaerobic wool-scouring wastewater treatment lagoon. The cells are straight rods and motile by means of a single flagellum. The optimum pH and temperature range for growth are between 6.6-7.3 and 55-60 degrees Celsius, respectively. The optimum NaCl concentration is 0.08 g/l. ferments organic acids (malate, tartrate, pyruvate, glycerol and fumarate) and a few carbohydrates (starch, glucose, fructose and gluconate. Carbohydrates and organic acids are converted to acetate, hydrogen and CO2. It oxidizes leucine to isovalerate with crotonate as an electron acceptor. Thiosulfate, sulfur and cystine are reduced to sulfide and crotonate is reduced to butyrate with glucose as electron donor. This is the type strain (adapted from PMID: 11837298).
