NC_012438:192065 Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense Az-Fu1 chromosome, complete genome
Host Lineage: Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense; Sulfurihydrogenibium; Hydrogenothermaceae; Aquificales; Aquificae; Bacteria
General Information: This strain was isolated from a terrestrial hot spring in the Azores, where it was living at temperatures between 65 degrees C and 70 degrees C. Hydrogen-oxidizing thermophile. Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense is a thermophilic bacterium that is able to use hydrogen and sulfur compounds as electron donors. This organism is also able to use ferric iron and arsenate as electron acceptors. This is the first pure culture terrestrial member of the Aquificales group, isolated by dilution-to-extinction methods.
