Sediment samples of hydrothermal systems served as inoculum. The working electrode potential was set to 594 mV versus saturated calomel electrode and the ES medium (pH 3.5; 10 mM NH4Cl, 2.5 mM NaCl, 0.3 mM KH2PO4, 0.12 mM MgSO4, 0.1 mM CaCl2, 1 ml l-1 Wolfe's mineral elixir) was constantly sparged with a gas mix consisting of 80 % N2 and 20 % CO2 (v/v). The final enrichment was performed at 60°C under autotrophic conditions in ES medium with 0.25 cm^2 of the cathodic graphite felt as inoculum. The gas phase consisted of 20 % CO2, 75 % H2 and 5 % O2 (v/v/v). After serial dilutions in ES medium, single colonies were obtained by plating the culture on Reasoner's 2A agar at 60°C and 2-5 days.
