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: This organism was originally isolated from a rice field sample in Thailand. Burkholderia thailandensis is a common soil saprophyte (lives on decaying organic matter in the soil). This bacterium is very similar to the human and animal pathogen Burkholderia pseudomallei but appears to be avirulent. Distinguishing the two organisms is very difficult and may depend on using monoclonal antibodies to detect differences in exopolysaccharide production.
