NCBI Assembly: GCA_000091165.1
Nomenclatural status
Validly published under the SeqCode


The description is the same as given by Ettwig et al., 2010: Methane-oxidizing and nitrite-reducing bacterium of the candidate division NC10. Grows anaerobically, but produces oxygen for the aerobic oxidation of methane. Reduces nitrite to dinitrogen gas without a nitrous oxide reductase. Gram-negative rod with a diameter of 0.25–0.5 mm and a length of 0.8–1.1 mm. Mesophilic with regard to temperature and pH (enriched at 25–30 uC and pH 7–8). Slow growth (doubling time 1–2 weeks).
