Query: NC_013440:811780 Haliangium ochraceum DSM 14365, complete genome Lineage: Haliangium ochraceum; Haliangium; Kofleriaceae; Myxococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Isolation: Seaweed collected from coastal sands from Japan; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 30C; Habitat: Coastal, Marine, Sand. This organism, like other myxobacteria, undergoes a complex development and differentiation pathway. When cell density increases, the organism switches to "social motility" where aggregates of cells can gather together into masses termed fruiting bodies that may consist of up to 100 000 cells. Haliangium ochraceum is a true marine organism requiring 1-3% NaCl for growth.

General Information: This strain (2CP-1; ATCC BAA-258) is the type strain for the species and was isolated from stream sediment near Lansing, Mich., USA. This anaerobic species was originally isolated by enrichment and isolation of single plate-grown colonies, and was the first pure culture of myxobacteria able to grow anaerobically. The unique physiological characteristics of this organism include the ability to use ortho-substituted mono- and dichlorinated phenols, nitrate, H2 and fumarate as terminal electron acceptors.
