The bacteria of the oxidative part of the sulfur cycle are of global importance and catalyze complex pathways for the complete oxidation of sulfide to sulfate. One of the important groups catalyzing the oxidation of reduced sulfur compounds in the marine environment are bacteria belonging to the genus Thiomicrospira, a group which originally included all marine, spiral-shaped sulfur oxidizing bacteria. Subsequent analyses of 16S rDNA sequences have revealed that members of Thiomicrospira are distributed among the gamma and epsilon subdivisions of the Proteobacteria. All Thiomicrospira species characterized to date are obligate chemolithoautotrophic bacteria that use sulfide, thiosulfate, and elemental sulfur as electron donors, and CO2 as their carbon source. Thiomicrospira crunogena was originally isolated from the East Pacific Rise. It was subsequently cultivated or detected with molecular methods from deep-sea vents in both the Pacific and Atlantic.
