Query: NC_009337:715500 Chlorobium phaeovibrioides DSM 265 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Chlorobium phaeovibrioides; Chlorobium; Chlorobiaceae; Chlorobiales; Chlorobi; Bacteria General Information: Nitrogen-fixing photosynthetic bacterium. This organism is unique in its ability to form extracellular sulfur globules from thiosulfate. It is one of the few strains which can use both thiosulfate and tetrathionate as electron donors. Nitrogen fixation.

General Information: This strain differs from other isolates based on the combination of its ability to use 2,5-dichlorophenol and its inability to use nitrate as a strong electron acceptor. It can also dechlorinate 2,4-dichlorophenol and 2,4,6-trichlorophenol much faster than other isolates. Can dehalogenate chlorinated phenols. This anaerobic species was originally isolated by enrichment and isolation of single plate-grown colonies, and was the first pure culture of myxobacteria able to grow anaerobically.
