Comment
Microaerophilic, chemoorganotrophic, halotolerant and symbiotic organism in a marine environment.
The metabolism is chemoorganotrophic; organic acids and amino acids are used as carbon sources but carbohydrates are neither oxidized nor fermented.
Hydrogen is not necessary for growth.
Nitrate is reduced to nitrite and sulfide is produced from cysteine.
The optimum growth temperature is 30 deg C, the temperature range is from 10-37 deg C.
Isolated from roots of Spartina alterniflora Loisel (cordgrass) growing in salty marshes at the East coast of Canada.
