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.

Subject: NC_011060:514874 Pelodictyon phaeoclathratiforme BU-1, complete genome

Lineage: Pelodictyon phaeoclathratiforme; Pelodictyon; Chlorobiaceae; Chlorobiales; Chlorobi; Bacteria

General Information: Pelodictyon phaeoclathratiformeBU-1 was isolated from lake water in 1989. This organism is a phototrophic green sulfur bacteria that inhabits hydrogen sulfide-containing water and freshwater mud, brackish waters and marine environments. This organism forms net-like microcolonies and contains gas vescicles. It is believed that the gas vesicles provide the buoyancy necessary to keep the cell at the optimal depth for photosynthesis.
