Methylocapsa palsarum NE2T is an aerobic, mildly acidophilic, obligate methanotroph. Similar to other Methylocapsa species, it possesses only a particulate methane monooxygenase and is capable of atmospheric nitrogen fixation. The genome sequence of this typical inhabitant of subarctic wetlands and soils also contains genes indicative of aerobic anoxygenic photosynthesis.
