General Information

General Information Comment Organism
physiological function the bacterium is capable of growth as Calvin cycle autotroph on inorganic sulfur compounds, methylated sulfides or thiocyanate. Methanethiol, sulfide, formaldehyde and formate, but not dimethyl sulfide, may be implicated as intermediates in dimethyl disulfide metabolism Thiobacillus thioparus
