NC_009453:36599 Arthrobacter sp. Rue61a plasmid pAL1, complete sequence
Host Lineage: Arthrobacter; Arthrobacter; Micrococcaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: Bacteria of the genus Arthrobacter are ubiquitous in the environment. They are characterized by nutritional versatility and pronounced resistance to desiccation, long-term starvation, toxic compounds, oxidative stress, and other environmental stress conditions. Arthrobacter nitroguajacolicus strain Rü61a was previously isolated from sludge of the biological wastewater treatment plant of a coal tar refining company, based on its ability to utilize quinaldine (2-methylquinoline) as source of carbon and energy. The genome sequence provides insight into the full catabolic potential of Arthrobacter nitroguajacolicus Rü61a, and contributes to a better understanding of the molecular basis of the versatility and robustness of the genus Arthrobacter.
