Abstract

Strain GS-16T (T = type strain) is a methylotrophic methanogen that was isolated from estuarine sediments from San Francisco Bay (4) and has been deposited in the Oregon Collection of Methanogens (Oregon Graduate Institute, Portland) as strain OCM 5ST. This strain was isolated by using dimethyl sulfide as the catabolic substrate (4), but it can also grow on methylamines (13) and methanethiol (8, 9) and grew when it was inoculated into MSHA medium (6) supplemented with 20 mM methanol as the sole catabolic substrate. Strain GS-16T cells form methane from methylmercury (12) and dimethylselenide (16), although they cannot grow on these substrates, and form traces of ethane from diethyl sulfide (15). Methanogenesis from trimethylamine is inhibited by methyl fluoride (11) and methyl bromide (14), but not by dimethyl ether (1 1).
