Brevundimonas subvibrioides ATCC 15264

Names Brevundimonas subvibrioides ATCC 15264
Accession numbers NC_014375
Background A non-budding, aquatic prosthecate bacteria, reproduction results in two cells that are morphologically and behaviourally different from each other. One is non-motile, sessile by virtue of adhesive material and prosthecate, possessing at least one elongated, cylindrical appendage (a prostheca) that is an outgrowth of the cell envelope, including the outer membrane, the peptidoglycan layer and the cell membrane. The other is flagellated, bearing one polar flagellum, by which it is motile. The stalks synthesized by some Alphaproteobacteria take up diffuse compounds from water sources, a feature that could be exploited for bioremediation, specifically the uptake of toxic compounds from contaminated water sources. Furthermore, extracellular polysaccharides from some of the stalked bacteria sequester metals, a feature that could be used to remediate environments affected by metal toxicity. Strain ATCC 15264, the type strain for this species, was isolated from pond water in 1964 (adapted from PMID 10425763 and (EBI Integr8)
