Thermovibrio ammonificans HB-1

Names Thermovibrio ammonificans HB-1
Accession numbers NC_014917, NC_014926
Background Thermovibrio ammonificans (strain DSM 15698 / JCM 12110 / HB-1) is a thermophilic, anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the walls of an active deep-sea hydrothermal vent chimney on the east Pacific rise. This organism grows on mineral salts in the presence of carbon dioxide and hydrogen, reducing nitrate or sulfur to ammonium or hydrogen sulfide, respectively. The characterization of T. ammonificans is critical to understand the ecology and biogeochemistry of geothermal environments. (Adapted from: (EBI Integr8)
