N.L. gen. n. phosphatis, of phosphate


Hesselmann et al., 1999: A. phosphatis can be distinguished from Rhodocyclus species by its inability for phototrophic growth, its cell shape, and in situ hybridization with probe RHX991. Characteristic is the ability to metabolize acetate and accumulate PHB under anaerobic conditions using polyphosphate as energy source.
