Query: NC_008340:1241300 Alkalilimnicola ehrlichei MLHE-1, complete genome Lineage: Alkalilimnicola ehrlichii; Alkalilimnicola; Ectothiorhodospiraceae; Chromatiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This chemoautotrophic strain was isolated from Mono Lake in California, which contains arsenic and has high pH and salt concentrations. Arsenite-oxidizing bacterium. Alkalilimnicola ehrlichei is capable of growth with arsenite [As(III)] as the electron donor with nitrate as electron acceptor. It may be responsible for production of arsenate [As(V)] in anoxic lake bottom.

General Information: This magnetotactic bacterium was isolated from water from the Pettaquamscutt Estuary, in Rhode Island, USA. Migration is towards the anoxic/oxic interface which in the case of Magnetococcus sp. MC-1 is in a polar direction. The genome sequence of this organism will provide information on the production and regulation of the proteins involved in the magnetosome.
