Query: NC_008577:4183361 Shewanella sp. ANA-3 chromosome 1, complete sequence Lineage: Shewanella; Shewanella; Shewanellaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This strain was isolated from an arsenate treated wood pier that was in a brackish estuary (Eel Pond) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. It is capable of converting As(V) to arsenite and may be used in bioremediation of contaminated sites.

General Information: This is the type strain for this organism, which was isolated from a hydrothermal vent at a depth of 1300 m from the Lo'ihi Seamount southeast of Hawaii. This organism grows optimally in salt concentrations of 7.5 to 10%. Genome comparison has suggested that the bacterium has maintained its amino acid transport and degradation systems but lost sugar transport and certain sugar metabolic genes suggesting that it lives on amino acids rather than sugars. This may be in keeping with the environment this organism grows in, which is at hydrothermal deep sea vents that are characterized by collections of proteinaceous particles. This organism may colonize these particles by producing exopolysaccharides.
