A sulfur-oxidizing chemolithoautotrophic bacterium, Sulfurovum lithotrophicum 42BKT(T), isolated from hydrothermal sediments in Okinawa, Japan, has been used industrially for CO2 bio-mitigation owing to its ability to convert CO2 into C5H8NO4(-) at a high rate of specific mitigation (0.42 g CO2/cell/h). The genome of S. lithotrophicum 42BKT(T) comprised of a single chromosome of 2217,891 bp with 2217 genes, including 2146 protein-coding genes and 54 RNA genes. Here, we present its complete genome-sequence information, including information about the genes encoding enzymes involved in CO2 fixation and sulfur oxidation.
