Query: NC_013939:420500 Deferribacter desulfuricans SSM1, complete genome Lineage: Deferribacter desulfuricans; Deferribacter; Deferribacteraceae; Deferribacterales; Deferribacteres; Bacteria General Information: Thermophilic sulphur-reducing bacterium. Isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent chimney at the Suiyo Seamount in the Izu-Bonin Arc, Japan. Deferribacter desulfuricans is an anaerobic, heterotrophic thermophile. It is a strictly anaerobic heterotroph capable of using complex organic compounds, ethanol and various organic acids as energy and carbon sources. Elemental sulfur, nitrate or arsenate was required for growth as an electron acceptor.

General Information: Methane-producing thermophilic archeon. Isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent in the east Pacific Rise in 1982. This organism is an obligately anaerobic methane-producing archeon and was the first representative of the archaeal domain to be completely sequenced. The cells require a pH of 5.2-7 with 1.0-5.0% NaCl, optimal conditions are pH 6.0 and 3% NaCl. Fixes carbon dioxide to methane as its primary energy-producing biochemical pathway.
