Query: NC_009484:2442923 Acidiphilium cryptum JF-5 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Acidiphilium cryptum; Acidiphilium; Acetobacteraceae; Rhodospirillales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Acidiphilium cryptum strain JF-5 was isolated under iron-reducing conditions from coal mine lake sediment and is able to grow by coupling the reduction of iron to the oxidation of glucose. Iron-reducing acidophile. Acidiphilium cryptum was first isolated from a supposedly pure culture of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans. This organism, a heterotrophic acidophile, has been isolated from acid mine drainage, hydrothermal vent water, and other acidic mineral environments.

General Information: Formerly Silicibacter pomeroyi, his marine bacterium is a member of the Roseobacter clade and was isolated off of the coast of Georgia in 1998. Dimethylsulfoniopropionate-degrading bacterium. Capable of degrading the organic sulfur compound DMSP (dimethylsulfoniopropionate) and can metabolize a number of sulfur compounds. DMSP is synthesized by marine algae and the degradation product dimethylsulfide contributes to the global sulfur cycle.
