Query: NC_011899:948790 Halothermothrix orenii H 168, complete genome Lineage: Halothermothrix orenii; Halothermothrix; Halanaerobiaceae; Halanaerobiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Thermophillic halophile. Halothermothrix orenii H 168 was isolated from the sediment of a salt lake in Tunisia. This organism is a member of a group of anaerobic halophilic bacteria related to the Clostridia. This organism is a thermophile and therefore is able to grow in hot anaerobic saline environments.

General Information: This organism (Ureaplasma urealyticum biovar 1) is normally found as a commensal organism in the human genital tract. As an opportunistic pathogen, it can cause a sexually-transmitted disease and is recognized as causing non-chlamydial non-gonococcal urethritis. It can also cause obstetric complications in pregnant women, severe infections in infants, as well as meningitis. Like other Mollicutes, it is a wall-less bacterium and has undergone marked genome reduction. This organism appears to generate ATP through the hydrolysis of urea by the urease enzyme.
