Phototrophic bacterium

Lineage: Bacteria[20316]; Proteobacteria[6195]; Alphaproteobacteria[1904]; Rhodospirillales[206]; Rhodospirillaceae[96]; Rhodospirillum[3]; Rhodospirillum rubrum[1]
Rhodospirillum rubrum. This organism is an anoxygenic phototrophic bacterium that does not produce oxygen, but instead produces extracellular elemental sulfur when harvesting light energy. The bacterium lacks the light harvesting complex 2 (LHC2) normally found in photosynthetic bacteria meaning it contains one of the simplest photosynthetic systems studied.
