General Information: Dehalogenimonas lykanthroporepellens BL-DC-9 is a strictly anaerobic, reductively dechlorinating Gram-negative bacterium isolated from groundwater at a superfund (law designs to clean up sites contaminated with hazardous substances) site located near Baton Rouge, USA, in an area contaminated by high concentrations of several chlorinated alkanes and alkenes. Dehalogenimonas lykanthroporepellens is able to reductively dehalogenate polychlorinated alkanes such as 1,2,3-trichloropropane and 1,2-dichloroethane.
