Query: NC_010524:3445641 Leptothrix cholodnii SP-6, complete genome Lineage: Leptothrix cholodnii; Leptothrix; Comamonadaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Leptothrix cholodnii SP-6 was isolated from water and flocculent from an artificial iron seep in Ithaca, NY, USA. Leptothrix cholodnii, like other Leptothrix species is an iron- and manganese-oxidizing, sheathed bacterium common in organic rich aquatic environments. Iron oxides and manganese oxides often coat the sheathes of these organisms.

General Information: This organism is a nitrogen-fixing obligate endophyte first isolated from the roots of Kaller grass in the Punjab region of Pakistan. These organisms are never found in root-free soil and colonize root tissues without causing disease. This strain has been shown to express genes involved in nitrogen fixation in root tissue and is thought to provide significant amounts of nitrogen to its host plant.
