General Information: Isolated from the Gotland Deep, an anoxic basin in the central Baltic Sea in 1986 from a depth of 120-130 m. Denitrifying marine 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 denitrificans is a vigorous denitrifier, able to convert nitrite and nitrate to nitrogen. This organism has been isolated from seawater and may play a significant role in nitrogen cycling in marine environments.
