Roseobacter sp. CCS2
Ecology and Physiology
Roseobacter sp. CCS2 is a member of the Roseobacter lineage (α-Proteobacteria), an ecologically relevant taxon of marine bacteria abundant in coastal and open ocean surface waters. CCS2 is an aerobic anoxygenic phototroph (AAnP), using bacteriochlorophyll a to harvest energy from light without formation of oxygen. AAnPs have recently been found in ocean surface waters, where they make up a significant fraction of the marine bacterioplankton community, are responsible for a share of the oceanic photosynthetic electron transport flux, and have important implications for the ocean carbon cycle.
Roseobacter CCS2 was isolated from Pacific coastal waters on low-nutrient seawater medium.
