Sulfate-reducing bacteria

HMC 2012


Sulfate reducers

Sulfate reducers,

  • Strict anaerobes,

  • Belong to 4 phylogenetic lineages;

    • Delta-proteobacteria, thermophilicGram (-) bacteria, Gram (+) bacteria, Euryarchaeota

  • Reduce sulfate to sulfide,

  • Electron donors (H2, HCOO-, acetate, butyrate, propionate, ethanol)

  • Two physiological groups of SRB;

    • Incomplete oxidizers: organic compounds to CO2 and acetate

    • Complete oxidizers: organic compounds to CO2


Starting enrichments

Starting enrichments


Enrichments

Enrichments

  • Sediment sample in 50 ml Pfennig bottle

  • Incubated @ 30oC

  • Checked regularly for turbidity, blackening, H2S smell…

  • Observed microscopically

  • 3 ml culture was transferred to a new bottle for further enrichment.


Hey they re growing

Hey, they’re growing!


Isolation step

Isolation step…

1 ml

culture

3ml 3% agar + 6 ml medium

SRB enrichment

culture

The headspace gas was exchanged by

purging with N2 during 1 minute.


Some nice agar shakes
