Project Description
Relevant Criteria 4 and 5:

4. Bacterioplankton isolates representing broad physiological diversity (photoautotrophs, photoheterotrophs, nitrifiers, methanotrophs, etc.)

ELB17 is a denitrifying strain, and is a member of a genus in which this metabolic capability is common. Marinobacter strains typically have the Fe type NiR, encoded by nirS. Denitrification, however, is not a particularly constraining or rare metabolism. Nevertheless, when clone libraries are built on the basis of nirS genes (encoding nitrite reductase in denitrifiers), Marinobacter-like sequences are quite common in a number of key N cycling environments (e.g., Lake Bonney suboxic zone, coastal Arabian Sea and Chilean OMZs, etc.). Thus this metabolism may be characteristic of this genus, which is a significant component of clone libraries from marine environments.

5. Isolates from diverse environments/habitats (greater depths, more extreme temperatures, specialized habitats).

ELB17 was isolated from the chemocline waters of a permanently ice-covered lake in the Taylor Valley in Antarctica. The salinity of its environment is approximately equal to that of seawater; it has an obligate salt requirement and grows optimally at 12oC (Ward and Priscu, 1997). Its 16S rRNA sequence places it in the Marinobacter clade that is commonly isolated from seawater and marine sediments and widely detected in clone libraries from diverse marine environments (Mediterranean Sea, Pacific deep sea sediments, Arctic and Antarctic sea-ice, etc.). Sequences nearly identical to ELB17aa??a??s 16S rRNA sequence have been detected in other Antarctic lakes, including >30% of a 16S rRNA clone library from a frozen lake in the MacKenzie Valley of Antarctica
