Host Lineage: Starkeya novella; Starkeya; Xanthobacteraceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: Isolation: Soil; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 26 - 30C; Habitat: Soil. Starkeya novella is a non-motile soil bacterium that belongs to the facultatively heterotrophic microbes. It is able to grow heterotrophically on a variety of single-carbon compounds, sugar alcohols, amino acids, carboxylic acids, and fatty acids. In addition, it is able to grow chemolithoautotrophically using a variety of inorganic and organic sulfur compounds such as thiosulfate, tetrathionate, dimethylsulfide (DMS), and dimethylsulfoxide.
