Query: NC_019902:2372097 Thioalkalivibrio nitratireducens DSM 14787, complete genome Lineage: Thioalkalivibrio nitratireducens; Thioalkalivibrio; Ectothiorhodospiraceae; Chromatiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Lithotrophic sulfur-oxidizing. Denitrification, Dissimilatory sulfate reduction. Moderately halophilic, obligately alkaliphilic and chemolithoautotrophic, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from a mixed culture capable of complete autotrophic denitrification with thiosulfate as electron donor at pH 10; the mixed culture was enriched from sediment from Lake Fazda (Wadi Natrun, Egypt), a hypersaline alkaline lake.

General Information: Pelodictyon phaeoclathratiformeBU-1 was isolated from lake water in 1989. This organism is a phototrophic green sulfur bacteria that inhabits hydrogen sulfide-containing water and freshwater mud, brackish waters and marine environments. This organism forms net-like microcolonies and contains gas vescicles. It is believed that the gas vesicles provide the buoyancy necessary to keep the cell at the optimal depth for photosynthesis.
