Abstract

The chemolithoautotrophic betaproteobacterium Tetrathiobacter kashmirensis belongs to the family Alcaligenaceae and is phylogenetically closely related to pathogens such as Taylorella and Bordetella species. While a complete inorganic sulfur oxidation gene cluster, soxCDYZAXWB, is present in its genome, pathogenicity islands or genes associated with virulence, disease, cellular invasion, and/or intracellular resistance are completely absent.
