Paenirhodobacter enshiensis is a non-photosynthetic species that belongs to family Rhodobacteraceae. Here we report the draft genome sequence of Paenirhodobacter enshiensis DW2-9T and comparison results to the available related genomes. The strain has a 3.4 Mbp genome sequence with G + C content of 66.82 % and 2781 protein-coding genes. It lacks photosynthetic gene clusters and putative proteins necessary in Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas (EMP) pathway, but contains proteins in Entner-Doudoroff (ED… 


Proposal of Pseudorhodobacter ferrugineus gen nov, comb nov, for a non-photosynthetic marine bacterium, Agrobacterium ferrugineum, related to the genus Rhodobacter.
This work proposes the transfer of A. ferrugineum IAM 12616(T) to the genus Pseudorhodobacter gen. nov. as PseudOrhodobacteria ferrugines comb, a taxonomic proposal that disturbs the phylogenetic monophyly of the genus Rhodobacter.
Rhodobacter viridis sp. nov., a phototrophic bacterium isolated from mud of a stream.
On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and molecular genetic evidence, strain JA737(T), which was isolated from mud of a stream in the Western Ghats of India, represents a novel species of the genus Rhodobacter, for which the name Rhodobacteria viridis sp.
Rhodobacter johrii sp. nov., an endospore-producing cryptic species isolated from semi-arid tropical soils.
On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, DNA-DNA hybridization data and morphological, physiological and chemotaxonomic characters, strain JA192(T) represents a novel species of the genus Rhodobacter, for which the name Rhodobacteria johrii sp.
Selenite reduction by Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 is mediated by fumarate reductase in periplasm
Findings reveal a previously unrecognized role of anaerobic respiration reductases of S. oneidensis MR-1 in selenite reduction and geochemical cycles of selenium in sediments and soils.
Rhodopseudomonas blastica sp.nov.: a Member of the Rhodospirillaceae
Inoculation of samples from a small eutrophic pond into pyruvate/malate medium at neutral pH yielded a new species of the Rhodospirillaceae described here as Rhodopseudomonas blastica, which has properties lying between the two groups of existing Rhodop SEU species, i.e. those which show intercalary growth and those which multiply by budding.
Rhodobacter aestuarii sp. nov., a phototrophic alphaproteobacterium isolated from an estuarine environment.
An ovoid to rod-shaped, phototrophic, purple non-sulfur bacterium isolated from a brown-coloured microbial mat from the brackish water of Bhitarkanika mangrove forest, Dangmal, Orissa, India, represents a novel species of the genus Rhodobacter, for which the name Rhodobacteria aestuarii sp.
Paenirhodobacter enshiensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a non-photosynthetic bacterium isolated from soil, and emended descriptions of the genera Rhodobacter and Haematobacter.
Strain DW2-9(T) was isolated from soil and is considered to represent a novel genus and species, for which the name Paenirhodobacter enshiensis gen. nov., sp.
Pseudomonas seleniipraecipitans Proteins Potentially Involved in Selenite Reduction
Evidence presented in this study shows that S. cerevisiae GR and E. coli ThxR can reduce SeO32− to Se0 and strongly suggests that P. seleniipraecipitans GR and Thx R can also reduce Se O32−to Se0.
Intrageneric Structure of the Genus Rhodobacter: Transfer of Rhodobacter sulfidophilus and Related Marine Species to the Genus Rhodovulum gen. nov.
With few exceptions, the marine Rhodobacter species can be differentiated phenotypically from the freshwater species on the basis of salt requirement for optimal growth, sulfide tolerance, final oxidation product of sulfide, and polar lipid composition and it is proposed that all marine RhodOBacter species should be transferred to the genus Rhodovulum gen. nov.
