Thioalkalivibrio sp. K90mix

Names Thioalkalivibrio sp. K90mix
Accession numbers NC_013889, NC_013930
Background Thioalkalivibrio sp. (strain K90mix) is an extremely salt tolerant (haloalkaliphilic), chemolithoautotrophic, sulfur-oxidizing Gram-negative bacterium isolated from a mixture of soda lake sediments. Thioalkalivibrio sp. uses CO2 as a carbon source and reduced sulfur compounds as an energy source. It has a pH optimum of 10 and can grow at salinities up to 4.3M of sodium and 3.6M of potassium. Thioalkalivibrio sp. can be used to remove noxious sulfur compounds from waste streams and energy carriers (bioremediation and carbon sequestration). (Adapted from: (EBI Integr8)
