Sulfitobacter sp. EE-36
Ecology and Physiology
Isolate Sulfitobacter sp. EE-36 was isolated from the salt marsh on the coast of Georgia, US. Phylogenetically it belongs to the Sulfitobacter genus, which has been isolated from numerous places. Originally Sulfitobacter was isolated from the Black Sea, although it proved to be abundant in other environments, such as coastal and open ocean environments, an Antarctic lake and in symbiosis with sea animals. Sulfitobacter is particularly abundant in environments with a constant source of inorganic sulphur, like the Black Sea sediment or seafloor. Sulfitobacter sp. EE-36 stands out for its high inorganic sulphur oxidation activity. It is able to oxidize sulfite and thiosulfate, possibly to conserve energy for growth. It also grows on DMSP and glycine betaine as sole carbon sources.
