Acidobacterium capsulatum ATCC 51196

Names Acidobacterium capsulatum ATCC 51196
Accession numbers NC_012483
Background Acidobacterium capsulatum (strain ATCC 51196 / DSM 11244 / JCM 7670) is an aerobic, mesophilic, chemo-organotroph bacterium isolated from acidic mine drainage in Yanahara mine, Okayama, Japan. A. capsulatum is able to use a variety of carbon sources that span simple sugars to more complex substrates such as hemicellulose, cellulose, and chitin. It is capable of nitrate and nitrite reduction, but not N2 fixation or denitrification. It plays an important role in iron redox reactions and important contributions to the terrestrial carbon cycle. The presence of cellulose synthesis genes and a large class of novel high-molecular-weight excreted proteins suggests potential traits for desiccation resistance, biofilm formation, and/or contribution to soil structure.
