Query: NC_012438:565419 Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense Az-Fu1 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense; Sulfurihydrogenibium; Hydrogenothermaceae; Aquificales; Aquificae; Bacteria General Information: This strain was isolated from a terrestrial hot spring in the Azores, where it was living at temperatures between 65 degrees C and 70 degrees C. Hydrogen-oxidizing thermophile. Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense is a thermophilic bacterium that is able to use hydrogen and sulfur compounds as electron donors. This organism is also able to use ferric iron and arsenate as electron acceptors. This is the first pure culture terrestrial member of the Aquificales group, isolated by dilution-to-extinction methods.

General Information: This strain is an environmental isolate from the Naha Vents, Hawaii, in the Pacific Ocean. Psychrotolerant bacterium. This genus includes species that inhabit a wide range of environments and are capable of utilizing a wide variety of electron acceptors during anaerobic respiration including some insoluble metal oxides while using very few carbon sources such as lactate or acetate. This group of organisms have been studied extensively for their electron transport systems. Shewanella loihica is a psychrotolerant deep sea bacterium. This organism is able to reduce iron, manganese and uranium and may be useful for bioremediation at low temperatures.
