Query: NC_014010:1392536 Candidatus Puniceispirillum marinum IMCC1322 chromosome, complete Lineage: Puniceispirillum marinum; Puniceispirillum; ; ; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Puniceispirillum marinum (strain IMCC1322) is a Gram-negative bacterium isolated from a surface seawater sample from the Western Pacific Ocean Margin (East Sea of Korea). This organism has no sequenced representatives but as a member of the SAR116 clade it is a cosmopolitan marine bacterioplanktonic assemblage. The organism contains putative CO-utilizing enzymes and has proteorhodopsin for a light-driven proton pump.

General Information: Environment: Fresh water; Isolation: Pondwater; Temp: Mesophile; Isolation: pond water. Asticcacaulis excentricus inhabits aquatic environments and plays an important part in biogeochemical cycling of organic nutrients. This bacterium undergoes an unusual developmental cycle in which a swarming motile cell becomes a stalked cell that is attached to a solid surface. The stalked cell then undergoes asymmetric cell division and produces one flagellated motile daughter cell and one stalked daughter cell. Thus, the asymmetric processes in this organism provide useful models for differentiation and development.
