Anaeromyxobacter (strain Fw109-5) is a mesophilic, iron-reducing delta-Proteobacterium that was recently isolated from subsurface sediments (approximately 15 meters) at the ERSP-FRC in Oak Ridge, TN. The groundwater at the well had a pH of 6.09 and contained approximately 1.4 mM nitrate and 0.9 uM uranium. Optimal growth has been observed from pH 7.0 to 8.0, under anaerobic conditions but slightly microaerophilic conditions are tolerated. Electron donors include acetate, lactate, and pyruvate, and electron acceptors include nitrate and iron(III). It grows very slowly with ethanol, cellobiose and starch but cannot grow with yeast extract and peptone. Anaeromyxobacter have a high GC content (73.5%) and are distantly related to the genus Myxococcus. Based upon SSU rRNA gene sequences, the closest cultivable relative is Anaeromyxobacter dehalogenans 2CP-C with 96.5% sequence identity.
