Marinobacter aquaeolei is a moderately halophilic Gram-negative hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium phylogenetically associated with the gamma subdivision of the Proteobacteria. Several strains of bacteria were isolated at the head of an oil-producing well on an offshore platform in southern Vietnam. Cells are non-spore-forming, rod-shaped and motile by means of a polar flagellum. Growth occurs at NaCl concentrations between 0 and 20%; the optimum is 5% NaCl. Strain VT8 is able to degrade n-hexadecane, pristane and some crude oil components. It grows anaerobically in the presence of nitrate on succinate, citrate or acetate, but not on glucose. Marinobacter aquaeolei is also able to oxidize iron. The availability of iron is considered important to the cycling of carbon in the ocean and iron deficiency is believed to limit primary productivity. Marinobacter aquaeolei, as well as other members of this genus, may play a significant role in the iron and carbon cycles in the marine environment.
