Supplementary material: Sulfidogenic bacteria enriched from deep anoxic Black Sea sediment and the description of Desulfopila canfieldii sp. nov.



We present a cultivation-based study to investigate the diversity and identity of sulfidogens in sediment samples from the Black Sea at 2,100 m depth. This resulted in the isolation of a novel sulfate-reducing bacterium of the Desulfopila genus, strain LS5B(T), with lactate as original substrate. Strain LS5B(T) was characterized phenotypically and phylogenetically.
