Phase-contrast photomicrograph of Micropruina glycogenica Lg2T cells aerobically grown in NM-1 medium at 30 °C. Scale bar = 10 microns. - Source:1Aerobic heterotroph
The organism is suggested to be a putative GAO as acetate and glucose are assimilated under anaerobic conditions in the absence of excess polyphosphate storage in situ 2 and glycogen is stored under aerobic or anaerobic conditions in pure culture 1. Further studies are required to elucidate its physiology and role in EBPR. The sole isolate of the genus, Micropruina glycogenica, was isolated from a lab-scale EBPR system. Cells are cocci, occurring in pairs, packets or clusters 1.
MIC184 2. Note that this probe hits a number of closely related genera including some sbr-gs28 and Propionicimonas.
