Nitrosomonas sp. strain AL212 is an obligate chemolithotrophic ammonia-oxidizing bacterium (AOB) that was originally isolated in 1997 by Yuichi Suwa and colleagues. This organism belongs to Nitrosomonas cluster 6A characterized by sensitivity to high ammonia concentrations, higher substrate affinity (lower Km), and lower maximum growth rates in comparison to strains in Nitrosomonas cluster 7 that includes Nitrosomonas europaea and Nitrosomonas eutropha. Genome-informed studies of this ammonia-sensitive cohort of AOB are needed as they are found in freshwater environments, drinking water supplies, wastewater treatment systems and soils worldwide.
