Query: NC_008817:1443983 Prochlorococcus marinus str. MIT 9515, complete genome Lineage: Prochlorococcus marinus; Prochlorococcus; Prochlorococcaceae; Prochlorales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This strain was collected from the surface waters of the Equatorial Pacific. Marine cyanobacterium. This non-motile bacterium is a free-living marine organism that is one of the most abundant, as well as the smallest, on earth, and contributes heavily to carbon cycling in the marine environment. This cyanobacterium grows in areas of nitrogen and phosphorus limitation and is unique in that it utilizes divinyl chlorophyll a/b proteins as light-harvesting systems instead of phycobiliproteins. These pigments allow harvesting of light energy from blue wavelengths at low light intensity.

General Information: Candidatus Azobacteroides pseudotrichonymphae genomovar. CFP2 was isolated from a single cell of the protist Pseudotrichonympha grassii which resides in the termite gut. Gram-negative bacteria that are specifically found within the cytoplasm of the parabasalid protist Pseudotrichonympha grassii which resides in the hindgut of the termite Coptotermes formosanus. Candidatus Azobacteroides pseudotrichonymphae may be involved in providing nitrogen compounds for the host.
