Rhodospirillum rubrum ATCC 11170

Names Rhodospirillum rubrum ATCC 11170
Accession numbers NC_007641, NC_007643
Background Rhodospirillum rubrum (strain ATCC 11170 / NCIB 8255) is a Gram-negative, motile and spiral-shaped bacterium. It is able to grow under a broad range of conditions including aerobiosis and anaerobiosis. It can use fermentation or photosynthesis for producing energy when it grows anaerobically. It is able to grow on CO as sole source of energy. Its nitrogen fixation system consists of both a Mo-Fe and a Fe-only nitrogenases. (EBI Integr8)
