Deposit DSM 41605, from which other culture collection deposits had been derived, turned out to be contaminated. In 2015 a replacement strain was provided by one of the authors, which obtained the number DSM 100163. There is currently no other source for obtaining S. thermoautotrophicus UBT1. — Nouioui I.
