Host Lineage: Pseudoalteromonas; Pseudoalteromonas; Pseudoalteromonadaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: Pseudoalteromonas is a genus of gamma-proteobacteria that is widespread in the world's oceans, from surface water to deep-sea sediments. Pseudoalteromonas sp. SM9913, isolated from deep-sea sediment at a water depth of 1855 meters near the Okinawa Trough, is a psychrophilic strain that produces a large quantity of proteases and exopolysaccharides (EPSs), indicating its function in the degradation of sedimentary particulate organic nitrogen and its potential uses in biotechnology applications.
