Query: NC_009465:29735 Candidatus Vesicomyosocius okutanii HA, complete genome Lineage: Calyptogena okutanii thioautotrophic gill symbiont; sulfur-oxidizing symbionts; ; sulfur-oxidizing symbionts; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This strain was collected off Hatsushima island in Sagami Bay, Japan. Calyptogena okutanii (deep-sea clam) thioautotrophic gill symbiont. The bivalve marine species Calyptogena okutanii depends on sulfur-oxidizing symbiotic bacteria housed in its gill tissues for its sole nutritional support. The symbiont is transmitted vertically between generations via the clam's eggs. This anaerobic symbiosis oxidizes hydrogen sulfide as an energy source and fixes carbon dioxide into organic compounds.

General Information: Methylotrophic bacteria are a group of bacteria which are able to grow aerobically at the expense of methanol as the sole source of carbon and energy, and therefore could serve as biocatalysts for the conversion of methanol to commercially valuable multicarbon compounds like amino acids and cytochromes. Pink-pigmented facultative methylotrophs of the genus Methylovorus are ubiquitous in soil, air and water environments. The MP688 strain was isolated from soil as an PQQ producer.
