General Information: The aerobic phototrophic bacteria are ubiquitous as plant symbionts, free-living in lakes and ocean surface waters, soils and even near deep sea hydrothermal vents. Marine bacterium capable of aerobic anoxygenic photosynthesis. This bacterium was first isolated from a marine sediment collected on the coast of Australia. This organism's PufC photosynthetic protein has been studied as a classical tetraheme cytochrome, as it has all four possible heme-binding motifs.
