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 Clostridium (HF strain, ATCC 12662) was initially found associated with Methanococcus vannieli in formate-enriched cultures. After its isolation in pure culture, it was shown that this organism is capable of fermenting amino acids. Biochemical studies have shown that C. sticklandii obtains energy for growth from oxidation-reduction reactions between specific amino acid pairs. Clostridium sticklandii is a Gram-positive bacterium with low (G +C) content that is capable of fermenting amino acids.
