Query: NC_012438:565419 Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense Az-Fu1 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense; Sulfurihydrogenibium; Hydrogenothermaceae; Aquificales; Aquificae; Bacteria General Information: This strain was isolated from a terrestrial hot spring in the Azores, where it was living at temperatures between 65 degrees C and 70 degrees C. Hydrogen-oxidizing thermophile. Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense is a thermophilic bacterium that is able to use hydrogen and sulfur compounds as electron donors. This organism is also able to use ferric iron and arsenate as electron acceptors. This is the first pure culture terrestrial member of the Aquificales group, isolated by dilution-to-extinction methods.

General Information: Thermophilic sulfur-reducing bacterium. Nautilia can be isolated from the epidermis of the hydrothermal vent worm, Alvinella pompejana and from hydrothermal vent chimneys. These organisms grow chemoautotrophically on hydrogen, sulfur, and CO2. Nautilia profundicola is a thermophilic, hydrogen-oxidizing, sulfur-reducing chemoautotroph that uses the reductive TCA cycle for carbon fixation. It is a member of the deepest branch of the Epsilonproteobacteria and is a model organism of the anaerobic autotrophic Epsilonproteobacteria at hydrothermal vents.
