Desulfovibrio vulgaris (strain Hildenborough / ATCC 29579 / DSM 644 / NCIMB 8303)

General information

Species:  Desulfovibrio vulgaris (strain Hildenborough / ATCC 29579 / DSM 644 / NCIMB 8303)
Species code: DESVH
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Deltaproteobacteria; Desulfovibrionales; Desulfovibrionaceae; Desulfovibrio (TaxID: 882) [NEWT/ NCBI]
Description: Desulfovibrio vulgaris is a model for the study of the energy metabolism of sulfate-reducing bacteria. Sulfate-reducing bacteria have an important economic impact because they are involved in biocorrosion of ferrous metals in anaerobic environment. For example, their metabolism has several negative consequences for the petroleum industry (e.g. corrosion of the pumping machinery). These bacteria also contribute to bioremediation of toxic metal ions.
Properties: Presence of flagella: No
Human pathogen: No
Interaction: No
Number of membranes: 2
