Query: NC_006371:1848487 Photobacterium profundum SS9 chromosome 2, complete sequence Lineage: Photobacterium profundum; Photobacterium; Vibrionaceae; Vibrionales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Isolated at a depth of 2500 m from the Sulu Trough. High pressure tolerant bacterium. This bioluminescent genus was originally identified in 1878 in association with hake (a marine fish) in Cape Town, South Africa. This species was originally isolated from an amphipod homogenate enrichment from the Sulu Sea. It is a genetically tractable model system for studies of low temperature and high pressure adaptation, and has been used in studies of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acid production under these conditions.

General Information: This strain was isolated from the Baltic Sea. A psychrophilic bacterium. This genus includes species that inhabit a wide range of environments and are capable of utilizing a wide variety of electron acceptors during anaerobic respiration including some insoluble metal oxides while using very few carbon sources such as lactate or acetate. This group of organisms have been studied extensively for their electron transport systems.This species is differentiated from other Shewanella spp. based on its ability to grow at 4 degrees C but not at 37, production of N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase, lack of chymotrypsin, and ability to use a variety of complex carbon compounds as carbon and energy sources.
