Gemmatimonas aurantiaca (strain T-27 / DSM 14586 / JCM 11422 / NBRC 100505) is a phylogenetically novel aerobic rod-shaped motile Gram-negative bacterium isolated from an anaerobic-aerobic sequential batch reactor operated under enhanced biological phosphorus removal conditions for wastewater treatment. G. aurantiaca grows at 25-35 degrees Celsius with an optimum growth temperature of 30 degrees Celsius, whilst no growth is observed below 20 or above 37 degrees Celsius within 20 days incubation. The pH range for growth is 6.5-9.5, with an optimum at pH 7.0. G. aurantiaca is able to utilize a limited range of substrates, such as yeast extract, polypepton, succinate, acetate, gelatin and benzoate. It is also able to utilize the following substrates weakly: glucose, sucrose, galactose, melibiose, maltose, formate and b-hydroxybutyrate. (adapated from PMID: 12892144).
