Query: NC_014935:1834569 Nitratifractor saLSUginis DSM 16511 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Nitratifractor salsuginis; Nitratifractor; ; Campylobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Country: Japan; Isolation: Deep-sea hydrothermal vent chimney; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 37C. This organism was isolated from the Iheya North hydrothermal field inthe Mid-Okinawa Trough, Japan. It is a strict chemolithoautotroph, growing byrespiratory nitrate reduction with H2, forming N2 as a metabolic product.

General Information: This strain was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent in the Iheya North field in the Mid-Okinawa Trough, Japan as part of a larger diversity study. This rod-shaped bacterium grows chemolithoautotrophically and can utilize a wide spectrum of electron donors and acceptors (i.e. hydrogen, sulfur compounds, nitrate and oxygen). It can occupy different ecological niches, and its metabolic versatility probably enables it to adapt to the geochemical variability in deep-sea hydrothermal environments.
