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: Isolated from liver abscess from a 23-year old female patient in Thailand in 1993. This species is an opportunistic pathogen and can cause pneumonia, bacteremia, and melioidosis. It is normally found in terrestrial environments and has been recovered from rice paddies and moist tropical soil. It is endemic in Asia and Australia, but can be found in other parts of the world. The organism can exist intracellularly and can spread through the bloodstream (bacteremia).
