Host Lineage: Sulfurimonas denitrificans; Sulfurimonas; Helicobacteraceae; Campylobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: This organsim is a sulfur-oxidizing bacterium isolated isolated from estuarine mud in the Netherlands. Sulfur-oxidizing bacterium. Sulfurimonas denitrificans, formerly Thiomicrospira denitrificans, is a denitrifying chemolithoautotroph that uses sulfide or thiosulfate and nitrate or nitrite as the electron donor and acceptor. This organism has been identified in hydrothermal vent areas and from oilfields and may play a role in the cycling of sulfur in these environments.
