Tank, Bryant (2015): Microaerophilic, moderately thermophilic, anoxygenic, chlorophotoheterotrophic eubacterium. Cells are Gram-stain-negative, non-motile rods that divide by binary fission. Cells have chlorosomes as light-harvesting organelles, and the BChl a-binding Fenna-Matthews-Olson protein for light energy transfer to homodimeric type-1 reaction centres. Cells synthesize bacteriochlorophylls c and a P, chlorophyll a PD, Zn-bacteriochlorophyll a′P, echinenone and canthaxanthin as the major pigments. Based upon 16S rRNA sequence analysis, the new genus is assigned to subdivision 4 (Acidobacteriaceae) of the phylum Acidobacteria . The type species is Chloracidobacterium thermophilum.
The name "Candidatus Chloracidobacterium" Bryant, et al (2007) has now been validly published under the ICNP as Chloracidobacterium Tank, Bryant (2015).
