Query: NC_008344:1 Nitrosomonas eutropha C91, complete genome Lineage: Nitrosomonas eutropha; Nitrosomonas; Nitrosomonadaceae; Nitrosomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Nitrosomonas eutropha C91 was isolated from a sewage disposal plant in Chicago. Ammonia-oxidizing bacterium. This species consists of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria that catalyze the oxidation of ammonia to nitrite and contribute to the global cycling of nitrogen (a process called nitrification). This obligate chemolithoautotroph is studied for that reason.

General Information: Environment: Fresh water; Isolation: freshwater lake; Temp: Mesophile. Nitrosomonas sp. (strain Is79A3) is an aerobic, chemoautotrophic, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from freshwater lake. It oxidizes ammonia into nitrite. Nitrosomonas sp. are useful in treatment of industrial and sewage waste and in the process of bioremediation.
