Thermoanaerobacter brockii Wikipedia
Thermoanaerobacter brockii, formerly Thermoanaerobium brockii, is a thermophilic, anaerobic, sporeforming bacteria.
The bacteria was first isolated from Yellowstone National Park. The growth range for the organism is 35 to 80°C and pH 5.5-9.5, with optimal growth conditions at 65-70°C and pH 7.5. T. brockii stains Gram-positive. While originally thought to be non-sporeforming bacteria, it was later discovered that the organism produced spores that can survive heating at 115°C for 80 min. The bacteria was originally classified as Thermoanaerobium brockii, but further analysis put the bacteria into the Thermoanaerobacter genus. The species is named, "in honor of T.D. Brock, a pioneer in the golden era of thermophily."
