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.

General Information: Chlorobium phaeobacteroides strain DSM 266 was isolated from a lake in Norway. This species contains several carotenoids, predominated by isorenieratene and beta-isorenieratene. These are necessary for light harvesting and photoprotection, which are important functions in photosynthesis. This species demonstrates a novel type of carotenoid-mediated photoadaptation induced by the change of theta-end and beta-end carotenoid groups, under various light intensities.
