Query: NC_008340:362000 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 strain is the type strain for this species, and was isolated from a solfataric (volcanic area that gives off sulfuric gases) field. Thermophilic archaea. This organism is a thermophilic, acidophilic, archaea that was isolated from acidic hydrothermal vents on the shore of Aeolian Island of Vulcano, Italy. Growth of this facultative aerobe occurs at temperatures of 33-67°C with optimal at 60°C and pH of 1.0-4.0 (optimal 2.0).
