Desulfitobacterium hafniense

Desulfitobacterium hafniense is a bacteria. Its type strain is Co23 (= ATCC 700175 = DSM 11544). It is an anaerobic spore-forming microorganism. It is notable for being capable of reductive dechlorination of chlorophenols. Its cells are rod-shaped and 3.3 to 6 μm long by 0.6 to 0.7 μm wide, being motile, each cell having one or two terminal flagella. Its type strain is DCB-2T.[1]

Genome structure[edit]

Desulfitobacterium hafniense has a genome that contains 5.73 Mbp with 5,060 protein coding genes.[2]
