Desulfovibrio vulgaris is a sulfate reducer commonly found in a variety of soil and aquatic environments. It respires by electron transfer using the heme group in c-type cytochromes, and can corrode metal by cathodic depolarization using the same process. Its preferred carbon substrates are lactate and pyruvate. Sulfate-reducing bacteria have an important economic impact because they are involved in biocorrosion of ferrous metals in anaerobic environment. For example, metal corrosion, a problem that is partly the result of the collective activity of these bacteria, produces billions of dollars of losses each year to the petroleum industry. These organisms are also responsible for the production of poisonous hydrogen sulfide gas in marine sediments and in terrestrial environments such as drilling sites for petroleum products.

Desulfovibrio vulgaris Miyazaki F strain has been the sulfate-reducing strain of choice for examination of electron transfer components in Japan since the late 1960s. Enzymes of sulfate reduction, cytochromes and hydrogenases have been purified and characterized from D.vulgaris Miyazaki and have been the basis for comparison for similar work with D.vulgaris Hildenborough (DESVH). These strains are similar in physiology and many results are automatically considered applicable to all D.vulgaris strains. However, little is known about the genetics and true similarity of the Miyazaki strain to D. vulgaris. Thus the genome sequence of Miyazaki may reveal differences in the redundancy of systems for energy generation from that seen for Hildenborough and allow for more definitive experiments to establish electron flow.
