Query: NC_011768:3385719 Desulfatibacillum alkenivorans AK-01, complete genome Lineage: Desulfatibacillum alkenivorans; Desulfatibacillum; Desulfobacteraceae; Desulfobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Desulfatibacillum alkenivorans AK-01 was isolated from sediment from the Arthur Kill, NJ/NY waterway, USA. This site has a history of contamination from petrochemical industry and strain AK-01 is able to degrade 13 to 18 carbon alkanes. Desulfatibacillum alkenivorans is an alkene-degrading, sulfate-reducing bacterium isolated from estuarine sediment. It activates alkanes via subterminal addition of the alkane to fumarate.

General Information: This organism is a syntrophic propionate-oxidizing bacterium isolated from granular sludge from an anaerobic sludge bed reactor treating sugar-beet processing wastewater. Propionate-oxidizing bacterium. This organism is able to oxidize propionate when grown in co-culture with hydrogen-consuming methanogens (syntrophic metabolism). This organism can also ferment fumarate when not in co-culture.
