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 was first identified in the heavy metal-contaminated sludge of a settling tank in Belgium in the late 1970s. This organism, formerly Ralstonia metallidurans, is capable of growth in the presence of a large number of heavy metals including silver, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, mercury, nickel, lead, thallium, and zinc.
