NC_007760:4751000 Anaeromyxobacter dehalogenans 2CP-C, complete genome
Host Lineage: Anaeromyxobacter dehalogenans; Anaeromyxobacter; Myxococcaceae; Myxococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: This strain differs from other isolates based on the combination of its ability to use 2,5-dichlorophenol and its inability to use nitrate as a strong electron acceptor. It can also dechlorinate 2,4-dichlorophenol and 2,4,6-trichlorophenol much faster than other isolates. Can dehalogenate chlorinated phenols. This anaerobic species was originally isolated by enrichment and isolation of single plate-grown colonies, and was the first pure culture of myxobacteria able to grow anaerobically.
