Query: NC_009454:1042592 Pelotomaculum thermopropionicum SI, complete genome Lineage: Pelotomaculum thermopropionicum; Pelotomaculum; Peptococcaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: This type strain was isolated from granular sludge from a thermophilic upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor. It was isolated both in pure culture and in co-culture with methanogens. In syntrophic association with hydrogenotrophic methanogens, this species can utilize propionate, ethanol, lactate, ethylene glycol, 1-butanol, 1-propanol, 1-pentanol and 1,3-propanediol. This is the first mesophilic, syntropic propionate-oxidizing species known which is not a member of the delta-proteobacteria.

General Information: The aerobic phototrophic bacteria are ubiquitous as plant symbionts, free-living in lakes and ocean surface waters, soils and even near deep sea hydrothermal vents. Marine bacterium capable of aerobic anoxygenic photosynthesis. This bacterium was first isolated from a marine sediment collected on the coast of Australia. This organism's PufC photosynthetic protein has been studied as a classical tetraheme cytochrome, as it has all four possible heme-binding motifs.
