Title: Chloroherpeton thalassium : Chloroherpeton thalassium overview      
ID:
PRJNA36891
description:
Chloroherpeton thalassium. This organism is the most distant member of the green sulfur bacteria and is commonly found in aquatic microbial mats. Chloroherpeton thalassium is distinct from the other green sulfur bacteria in that it grows as a filamentous rod and is capable of gliding motility. Chloroherpeton thalassium is a photolithotroph, obtaining energy by anoxygenic photosynthesis using sulfide or sulfur as the electron donor. The photosynthetic apparatus consist of membrane-bound iron/sulfur reaction center associated with a light absorbing organelle, the chlorosome. The primary light absorbing pigment in Chloroherpeton thalassium is bacteriochlorophyll c.
