Query: NC_017079:2243451 Caldilinea aerophila DSM 14535 = NBRC 104270, complete genome Lineage: Caldilinea aerophila; Caldilinea; Caldilineaceae; Caldilineales; Chloroflexi; Bacteria General Information: Caldilinea aerophila strain STL-6-O1T was isolated from a sulfur-turf sample in a pH neutral Japanese hot spring. It stains gram-negative and is facultatively aerobic: it grows both aerobically and anaerobically (fermentatively). Optimal growth occurs at 55 degrees C, pH 7.5 - 8.0. It requires yeast extract.

General Information: This strain differs from other isolates based on the combination of its ability to use 2,5-dichlorophenol and its inability to use nitrate as a strong electron acceptor. It can also dechlorinate 2,4-dichlorophenol and 2,4,6-trichlorophenol much faster than other isolates. Can dehalogenate chlorinated phenols. This anaerobic species was originally isolated by enrichment and isolation of single plate-grown colonies, and was the first pure culture of myxobacteria able to grow anaerobically.
