Query: NC_013194:3984377 Candidatus Accumulibacter phosphatis clade IIA str. UW-1, complete Lineage: Accumulibacter phosphatis; Accumulibacter; ; ; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Isolation: enhanced biological phosphorus removal; Country: USA; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Sediment, Sludge. Candidatus Accumulibactor phosphatis is a polyphosphate-accumulating, aerobic, Gram-negative bacterium that has been identified in enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) wastewater treatment systems. Removal of phosphorus from wastewater is important to avoid eutrophication (excess nutrients) in surface waters.

General Information: Country: USA; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 28 - 36C; Habitat: Marine, Skin microflora. Strain DSM 20547, the type strain, is a free-living, nonmotile, Gram-positive bacterium, originally isolated from a marine environment in about 1944. It grows as spherical/coccoid and occurs predominantly in tetrads which can be arranged in cubical packets. It is non-encapsulated and does not form endospores, is strictly aerobic and chemoorganotrophic, requires methionine and other amino acids for growth, and grows well in NaCl at concentrations up to 10% (w/v). This organism is a normal commensal of human skin, however has been implicated in pitted keratolysis, pneumonia, and other opportunistic infections.
