Idiomarina loihiensis L2TR

Names Idiomarina loihiensis L2TR
Accession numbers NC_006512
Background Idiomarina loihiensis is a gamma-proteobacterium isolated recently from a hydrothermal vent at 1300-m depth on the Loihi submarine volcano in Hawai. In contrast to obligate anaerobic vent hyperthermophiles, it inhabits partially oxygenated cold waters at the periphery of the vent and can survive a wide range of growth temperatures (from 4 degrees to 46 degrees Celsius) and salinities. I.loihiensis probably relies primarily on amino acid fermentation rather than on saccharolytic pathways for carbon and energy.(From (BacMap)
