Genome Sequences and Photosynthesis Gene Cluster Composition of a Freshwater Aerobic Anoxygenic Phototroph, Sandarakinorhabdus sp. Strain AAP62, Isolated from the Shahu Lake in Ningxia, China.
We report the first genome sequence from the recently established alpha-4 proteobacterial genus . The genome of the sp. strain AAP62 contains a photosynthesis gene cluster carrying major genes for bacterial reaction centers. The presence of genes related to aerobic respiratory electron transport confirms the lifestyle of this organism as an aerobic anoxygenic photoheterotroph.
