Query: NC_007517:1998342 Geobacter metallireducens GS-15, complete genome

Lineage: Geobacter metallireducens; Geobacter; Geobacteraceae; Desulfuromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: First isolated from the Potomac river downstream of Washington, DC, USA in 1987. This organism actively moves towards metal attractants such as iron and manganese oxides, which are insoluble, and produces type IV pili for attachment to the insoluble substrates. Common metal-reducing bacterium. This organism, similar to what is observed in Geobacteria sulfurreducens, couples the oxidation of organic molecules to the reduction of iron by using insoluble Fe (III) as an electron acceptor under anaerobic conditions. This bacterium plays an imporant part of the nutrient cycling in aquatic environments. The cell can also use uranium and plutonium, therefore, this organism and may be important for the bioremediation of contaminated waste sites.

Subject: NC_011891:2607812 Anaeromyxobacter dehalogenans 2CP-1, complete genome

Lineage: Anaeromyxobacter dehalogenans; Anaeromyxobacter; Myxococcaceae; Myxococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain (2CP-1; ATCC BAA-258) is the type strain for the species and was isolated from stream sediment near Lansing, Mich., USA. This anaerobic species was originally isolated by enrichment and isolation of single plate-grown colonies, and was the first pure culture of myxobacteria able to grow anaerobically. The unique physiological characteristics of this organism include the ability to use ortho-substituted mono- and dichlorinated phenols, nitrate, H2 and fumarate as terminal electron acceptors.
