Bacteria in the family Geobacteraceae have been proven to fill important niches in a diversity of anaerobic environments and global biogeochemical processes. Here, three bacterial strains in this family, designated Red875, Red259, and Red421 were isolated from river sediment and paddy soils in Japan. All of them are Gram-staining-negative, strictly anaerobic, motile, flagellum-harboring cells that form red colonies on agar plates and are capable of utilizing Fe(III)-NTA, Fe(III) citrate, ferrihydrite, MnO, fumarate, and nitrate as electron acceptors with acetate, propionate, pyruvate, and glucose as electron donors.
