Names Desulfotalea psychrophila LSv54
Accession numbers NC_006138, NC_006139, NC_006140
Background Desulfotalea psychrophila is a marine Gram-negative sulfate-reducing bacterium. It was isolated from permanently cold Arctic sediments off the coast of Svalbard. Its optimal growth temperature is 10 degrees Celsius but it is also able to grow at temperatures as low as -1.8 degrees Celsius. Psychrophilic sulfate-reducing bacteria are assumed to contribute significantly to the carbon and sulfur cycles.(From (BacMap)
