Pandey et al. 2002.
Gram-negative, motile by a single polar flagellum, non-fluorescent, straight rods, 2-5 x
1 μm.
Colonies are translucent and round with convex surfaces and smooth edges.
Can grow at between 25 and 42 ºC on Luria-Bertani medium, Tryptic soy agar and in
NaCl concentrations up to 2.5%.
Isolated from oil fields (soil) in India. Butane-utilizing strains IMT37T and IMT40 were isolated from soil samples by the enrichment
method, using liquefied petroleum gas as the sole source of carbon.
Unknown.
