These suggest an important role for carbohydrates in nutritional pathways, as well as in desiccation resistance. What are isolation sources categories? External links Search for species Acidobacterium acidobacterim in external resources: It is also motile by peritrichous flagella.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Assimilation of phenyl-acetic acid PAC. They are however, capable of nitrite reduction.

Acidobacteria capsulatum

The size of A. Availability in culture collections Strain availability.

They are frequent and sometimes dominant in iron-rich environments such as abandoned mines, and can play a significant role in iron-cycling. Information on genomic background e. In addition, bacterial adhesion, biofilm formation and growth along the root surfaces were observed in the bacterium.


Acidobacterium capsulatum – Genome Result

An acidophilic chemoorganotrophic bacterium containing menaquinone from acidic mineral environment”. Views Read Edit View history. Genomic evidences suggested the role of Acidoacterium. Takala and Cheryl R. Personal tools Log in. Information on morphological and physiological properties Morphology and physiology.

Assimilation of malic acid MLT. Integrated prophages were found in the genome of A.

KEGG GENOME: Acidobacterium capsulatum

Exclude text mining derived information. From MicrobeWiki, the student-edited microbiology resource. In addition, phylogenetic trees using 16s rRNA markers also show Acidobacteria and Proteobacteria being closely related compared to other phylums Relatedly, future research as suggested by Ward et al. The ability to scavenge iron is critical for survival in soils. Bacterial cellulose biofilm is hypothesized to be able to promote and facilitate adherence to ferric-iron substrates 8which can be quite useful in nutrient starved environments.

Soil samples from Australian forest and Arizona indicated that A.

Single protein phylogenies from all the proteins encoded by the genome support the acidobacterial-proteobacterial relationship; moreover A. Assimilation of gluconate GNT. Assimilation of citric acid CIT. Studies capsluatum suggested further flexibility and novelty in their ability to metabolize carbon. Members of the phylum Acidobacteria are dominant and metabolically active in rhizosphere soil.


The diverse modes of respiration acidobacterum survival mechanisms in the A. Prokaryotic Nomenclature Up-to-date – compilation of all names of Bacteria and Archaea, validly published according to the Bacteriological Code since 1. The bacterium produce exopolysaccharides for adhesion to the root surfaces.

There is research being conducted by researchers at Fort Lewis College, investigating A. Assimilatory nitrate reductase gene sequences are most similar to those described for the cyanobacteria. They can use glucose, starch, cellobiose, maltose as a sole carbon source, but cannot use elemental sulfur and ferrous iron as an energy source.
