Query: NC_014625:1903277 Ketogulonicigenium vulgare Y25 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Ketogulonicigenium vulgare; Ketogulonicigenium; Rhodobacteraceae; Rhodobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This species is Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, nonmotile, with ovoid to rod-shaped cells isolated from soil. Optimum temperature range is 27-29 degrees C. Strains can oxidize L-sorbose to 2-keto-L-gulonic acid, a key intermediate in the synthesis of vitamin C. Isolated from soil.

General Information: This bacterium can grow using carbon monoxide as the sole carbon and energy source and the cells contain a well characterized nitrogenase system that is post-translationally modified by ADP-ribosylation. Phototrophic bacterium. This organism is an anoxygenic phototrophic bacterium that does not produce oxygen, but instead produces extracellular elemental sulfur when harvesting light energy. The bacterium lacks the light harvesting complex 2 (LHC2) normally found in photosynthetic bacteria meaning it contains one of the simplest photosynthetic systems studied.
