NC_013943:124500 Denitrovibrio acetiphilus DSM 12809 chromosome, complete genome
Host Lineage: Denitrovibrio acetiphilus; Denitrovibrio; Deferribacteraceae; Deferribacterales; Deferribacteres; Bacteria
General Information: Isolation: Oil reservoir model column; Country: Norway; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water, Marine. This organism was first isolated from an oil reservoir modeling column under nitrate enrichment and reduces nitrate to ammonia. Stimulating the growth of nitrate-reducing bacterium in an oil well may prevent the growth of sulfate-reducing bacterium which cause reservoir souring by the production of H2S.
