There is no emperical data on the physiology of this organism with all current information derived from the annotation of a sequence bin from a metagenome of a lab-scale activated sludge system 1. The annotated genome suggests the ability for both aerobic and anaerobic respiration, fermentation, polyphosphate storage, and the utilisation of nitrate as an electron source. Also annotated is the potential for the use of a range of simple carbohydrates or fatty acids 1.
