Azospira represents one of the dominant (per)chlorate-reducing genera in the natural environment, and strain ATCC BAA-33 / DSM 13638 / PS is a model organism for studying this metabolism. However, A. oryzae is incapable of dissimilatory (per)chlorate respiration. Azospira oryzae (strain ATCC BAA-33 / DSM 13638 / PS) is a motile, facultative anaerobic, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from swine waste lagoons based on its ability to grow anaerobically by dissimilatory (per)chlorate reduction. A.oryzae possesses metabolic capabilities to perform anaerobic oxidation of the quinone moieties of humic acids, as well as anaerobic nitrate-dependent Fe(II) oxidation. A. oryzae also reduces selenate and selenite to elemental red selenium. It is the first organism shown to be capable of biogenic magnetite and green rust formation through Fe(II) bio-oxidation.
