Genome Sequence of Hydrothermal Arsenic-Respiring Bacterium Marinobacter santoriniensis NKSG1T

Genome Announc. 2013 May 9;1(3):e00231-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00231-13.


Marinobacter santoriniensis NKSG1(T) originates from metalliferous marine sediment. It can respire and redox cycle arsenic species and perform mixotrophic, nitrate-dependent Fe(II) oxidation. The genome sequence, reported here, will help further elucidate the genetic mechanisms underlying these and other potential biogeochemically relevant functions, such as arsenic and mercury resistance and hydrocarbon degradation.
