Caption: Sulfitobacter pontiacus - Gram-negative, sulfite-oxidizing, heterotrophic bacterium (prokaryote). Sulfitobacter pontiacus is a marine bacterium that is an obligate heterotroph that oxidizes sulfite. One of the first strains discovered was isolated from the Black Sea. Sulfitobacter pontiacus dominates the sulfate-forming population of the Black Sea.
