Query: NC_010814:1551624 Geobacter lovleyi SZ, complete genome Lineage: Geobacter lovleyi; Geobacter; Geobacteraceae; Desulfuromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Su-Zi Creek sediment was collected near a suburban residential area with no reported contamination in June 2002 near Seoul, South Korea. This species was isolated from creek sediment based on its ability to derive energy from acetate oxidation coupled to tetrachloroethene (PCE)-to-cis-1,2-dichloroethene (cis-DCE) dechlorination.

General Information: Common environmental anaerobe. The genus Pelobacter encompasses a unique group of fermentative microorganisms in the delta-proteobacteria. This species is ubiquitous in both marine and fresh water, and in anaerobic sedmiments. It is able to convert the unsaturated hydrocarbon acetylene to to acetate and ethanol via acetylaldehyde as an intermediate. These microorganisms may survive in some sediments as an Fe(III) or elemental sulfur reducer as well as growing fermentatively as an ethanol-oxidizing acetogen.
