Advenella kashmirensis strain WT001 (formerly named Tetrathiobacter kashmirensis) was isolated from bulk soil of a temperate orchard in Kashmir, India in the sub-tropical Himalayas. They were grown on reduced sulfur compounds as energy and electron sources. Cells are Gram-negative, non-flagellated, oval to coccoid-shaped bacteria occurring singly or in pairs, chains, branched chains or clusters; some cells have capsules. They are facultatively chemolithoautotrophic organisms that use thiosulfate or tetrathionate as electron and energy source; thiocyanate, soluble sulfides, elemental sulfur, sulfite and arsenite are not utilized as chemolithotrophic substrates (adapted from PMID 16166666). Although the genome was initially submitted as a whole draft genome it has subsequently been improved to the whole genome status.
