Shewanella baltica OS223

Names Shewanella baltica OS223
Accession numbers NC_011663, NC_011664, NC_011665, NC_011668
Background Shewanella are facultatively anaerobic, Gram-negative bacteria, motile by polar flagella, rod-like, and generally associated with aquatic or marine environments. They are capable of using a variety of compounds as electron acceptors, including oxygen, iron, manganese, uranium, nitrate, nitrite, fumarate, to name but a few. This ability makes Shewanella important for bioremediation of contaminated metals and radioactive wastes. The genus Shewanella comprises 36 recognized and hundreds of uncharacterized cultivable species.Shewanella baltica, isolated from the Baltic Sea, is able to grow at 4 degrees C but not 37, unlike other Shewanella species. Under anaerobic conditions, oxidation of organic matter can be coupled to the reduction of nitrate, Fe(III) and sulfur compounds. Shewanella baltica OS223 was isolated from the Baltic Sea at 120 m.
