Taxonomy

Description
Filamentous bacteria of centimeter length that inhabit the surface of brackish/intertidal sediment and conduct electrons from sulfide-oxidizing cells to oxygen-reducing cells. Gliding motility. Gram-negative, with 15 distinct ridges running longitudinally along the filament. Width of individual cells is 1.2 µm. Can assimilate acetate and propionate; CO2fixation via the Wood-Ljungdahl pathway. Contains c-type cytochromes, type IV pili (PilA) and Na+ antiporters. Polyphosphate and polyglucose storage. Distinguishable by morphology and genome.
Notes
First enrichment from marine estuarine sediment at Rattekaai harbour, Zeeland, The Netherlands, published together with the genome in Plum-Jensen et al. 2024
