General Information: It was isolated from a marine sediment in the Mediterranean sea near Venice, Italy. It is involved in the anaerobic mineralization of organic matter coming from the water column. Desulfobacterium autotrophicum is capable of growing litho-autotrophically with H2, CO2 and sulfate, but also by coupling sulfate reduction with the oxidation of fatty acids. This organism can transform tetra to dichlormethane.
