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: Isolation: Freshwater Lake Lansing, Michigan, USA; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 20 - 25C; Habitat: Fresh water. Pirellula staleyi DSM 6068 is commonly isolated from freshwater environments. Pirellula staleyi is a pear-shaped bacterium having a life cycle consisting of an aggregate-forming sessile (non-motile) form and a motile swarmer cell. They have a pirellulosome, a large nucleoid-containing cellular compartment, which is surrounded by a single membrane.
