NC_011891:2800000 Anaeromyxobacter dehalogenans 2CP-1, complete genome
Host Lineage: Anaeromyxobacter dehalogenans; Anaeromyxobacter; Myxococcaceae; Myxococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: This strain (2CP-1; ATCC BAA-258) is the type strain for the species and was isolated from stream sediment near Lansing, Mich., USA. 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. The unique physiological characteristics of this organism include the ability to use ortho-substituted mono- and dichlorinated phenols, nitrate, H2 and fumarate as terminal electron acceptors.
