Desulfosporosinus Acidophilus Medium
Ca(NO3)2 x 5 H2O0.02 g
D-Fructose3.50 g
Distilled water1000.00 mL
KCl0.05 g
KH2PO410.00 g
L-Cysteine-HCl x H2O0.50 g
MgSO4 x 7 H2O0.50 g
(NH4)2SO40.45 g
Na2HPO41.00 g
Selenite-tungstate solution (see below)1.00 mL
Trace element solution SL-10 (see below)1.00 mL
Vitamin solution (see below)10.00 mL
Yeast extract0.50 g
Na-resazurin solution (0.1% w/v)0.50 mL
Dissolve ingredients (except phosphates, vitamins, fructose and cysteine) and sparge medium with 80% N2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture for 30 - 45 min to make it anoxic. Dispense medium under same gas atmosphere into anoxic Hungate-type tubes or serum vials and autoclave. Prepare a phosphate buffer stock solution with KH2PO4 (25% w/v) and Na2HPO4, adjust pH of the buffer to 5.8. Prior to inoculation add phosphate buffer, vitamins, fructose and cysteine from sterile anoxic stock solutions prepared under 100% N2 gas. Vitamins and D-fructose should be sterilized by filtration. The pH of the complete medium should be at 5.8.
