Query: NC_010803:2474554 Chlorobium limicola DSM 245, complete genome Lineage: Chlorobium limicola; Chlorobium; Chlorobiaceae; Chlorobiales; Chlorobi; Bacteria General Information: Isolated from Gilroy Hot Spring. The green sulfur bacteria (GSB; Phylum Chlorobi ) are commonly found in illuminated, stratified, and anoxic aquatic environments, sediments, and other sulfide-rich environments including hot springs. This bacterium has been used to model a variety of enzyme and reaction center pathways, including ATP-citrate lyase, isocitrate dehydrogenase, and the reverse Krebs cycle used in photosynthesis. Now called the "reductive carbolic acid cycle", this was found to be the sole carbon dioxide assimilation pathway in other green sulfur bacteria since its discovery.

General Information: Chlorobium chlorochromatii CaD3 was isolated from a phototrophic consortia obtained from a freshwater lake in Germany. Chlorobium chlorochromatii is an green sulfur bacterium isolated from low temperature anaerobic fresh water habitats. This organism grows as part of a phototrophic consortium which consists of a colorless central bacterium surrounded by chlorosome-containing green sulfur epibionts. This organism is able to be grown in pure culture therefore is not an obligate symbiont. This organism is an obligate anaerobic phototroph able to fix nitrogen.
