Attribacteria - Atribacteria
Atribacteria is a candidate phylum of bacteria , which are common in anoxic sediments rich in methane . It was previously known as a candidate edge OP9 or JS1. They are distributed worldwide and in some cases abundant in anaerobic marine sediments , geothermal springs, and oil deposits. Genetic analyzes suggest a heterotrophic metabolism that gives rise to fermentation products such as acetate , ethanol, and CO 2 . These products in turn can withstand methanogenswithin the microbial community of sediments and explain the frequent occurrence of Atribacteria in anoxic sediments rich in methane. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] According to phylogenetic analyzes Atribacteria appears related to several thermophilic edges within Terrabacteria [ 3 ] or may be in the base Gracilicutes . [ 4 ]
