General Information: This strain (ATCC 23779; DSM 785) was isolated from Birch Lake in Minnesota, USA. Herpetosiphon aurantiacus grows in long, flexible, filaments with a transparent section of empty cell wall at the end of the filament. Herpetosiphon spp. and Herpetosiphon-like organisms have been found in soil, freshwater, and sewage treatment plants. These organisms have been implicated in the bulking of sludge in sewage treatment plants, which is problematic in that the sludge retains more water, making subsequent disposal difficult.
