Complete Genome Sequence of the Thermophilic, Obligately Chemolithoautotrophic Hydrogen-Oxidizing Bacterium Hydrogenobacter Thermophilus TK-6

J Bacteriol. 2010 May;192(10):2651-2. doi: 10.1128/JB.00158-10. Epub 2010 Mar 26.


Hydrogenobacter thermophilus is a thermophilic, obligately chemolithoautotrophic and aerobic hydrogen-oxidizing bacterium. It is unique in its ability to fix carbon dioxide via the reductive tricarboxylic acid cycle under aerobic conditions. It utilizes molecular hydrogen, elemental sulfur, or thiosulfate as the sole energy source. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of H. thermophilus TK-6.
