Query: NC_004193:950000 Oceanobacillus iheyensis HTE831, complete genome Lineage: Oceanobacillus iheyensis; Oceanobacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: This organism is extremely salt tolerant and alkaliphilic and has a number of hydrogen, sodium and potassium transporters to deal with these extreme environments. This organism was isolated from deep sea mud (1050 m) from the Iheya ridge near Okinawa, Japan in 1998.

General Information: Marinomonas MWYL1 was isolated from the root surface of the salt marsh grass Spartina anglica, growing near the North Norfolk, England village of Stiffkey. The genus Marinomonas comprises a widespread group of g -proteobacteria that exist in coastal waters, and which had been earlier been included in the genus Alteromonas. The interest in Marinomonas MWYL 1 was that it could grow on the betaine molecule Dimethylsulphoniopropionate (DMSP) as sole carbon source and, when it did do, it released large amounts of the gas dimethyl sulphide. DMSP is a compatible solute that is used by many marine phytoplankton and seaweed macroalgae as an osmoticum and an anti-stress compound. In addition, a few known land angiosperms make DMSP and these include certain species of Spartina - hence the choice of these plants as a source for DMSP-degrading bacteria. Indeed, others had shown previously that the DMSP-catabolising bacteria isolated from Spartina root surfaces included Marinomonas strains.
