Project Description
Obtain energy by respiratory nitrate ammonification; energy-yielding metabolism (the lithotrophic reduction of nitrate to ammonium) may be a relevant process in marine subsurface environments. Both fix CO2 via the reductive TCA cycle, a pathway that recently has been found to be widespread in organisms inhabiting geothermal marine environments. By fixing CO2 in the absence of oxygen, both these organisms are completely independent from photosynthetic processes, and therefore they are true primary producers in the deep ocean (in contrast with aerobic chemosynthetic bacteria, which ultimately depend on photosynthetically derived oxygen for their energy metabolism). Furthermore, since these organisms reduce nitrate to ammonia, which is then released into the environment, they contribute to the nitrogen cycling in the deep-sea. T. ammonificans represents one of only two species of a newly described genus within the deeply branching Phylum Aquificae, and it likely belongs to a novel Family (currently classified as Incertae sedis). The deeply branching region of the phylogenetic tree of life is poorly represented in terms of full genomes.
