Query: NC_010556:462500 Exiguobacterium sibiricum 255-15, complete genome Lineage: Exiguobacterium sibiricum; Exiguobacterium; Bacillales Family XII; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: This organism was isolated from a 2-3 million-year permafrost core in Siberia, Russia and can survive and grow rapidly at low temperatures. Analysis of long-term survival of psychrophilic organisms such as this one may aid understanding of the potential growth of organisms in astrobiology. Exiguobacterium sibiricum is a psychrotolerant organism able to grow at temperatures that range from -6 to 40 degrees C. This organism is also able to survive repeated freeze/thaw cycles which may contribute to its ability to survive in cold environments.

General Information: Isolation: Human gingival crevice; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 37C. The bacteria are nonmotile, Gram-positive rods that occur singly, in pairs, and in short chains; the central part of the cell may swell particularly when grown on solid medium. This strain is microaerotolerant to anaerobic and grows optimally at 37 degrees Celsius. Olsenella uli (formerly Lactobacillus uli) has been isolated from human gingival crevices and periodontal pockets.
