Hyphomicrobium denitrificans ATCC 51888

Names Hyphomicrobium denitrificans ATCC 51888
Accession numbers NC_014313
Background Hyphomicrobium denitrificans (strain ATCC 51888 / DSM 1869 / NCIB 11706 / TK 0415) is an aerobic, motile Gram-negative bacterium. It has a biphasic life style, which consists of a motile phase of flagellated swarmer cells, and a cessile phase in which a long prosthecate is produced at one end of the bacterium through which budding cells emerge. Newly budded cells in turn produce flagella and go through a motile phase and the cycle continues. H. denitrificans can colonize the surfaces of marine environments which enables additional species to colonize at later stages. It is also able to utilize methanol as a sole source of energy.
