Host Lineage: Methylotenera versatilis; Methylotenera; Methylophilaceae; Methylophilales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: Methylotenera sp. (strain 301) is an obligate methylotrophic Gram-negative bacterium specialized in degradation of organic compounds containing no carbon-carbon bonds (C1 compounds), most prominently methanol and methylamine. This ubiquitous bacterium has been detected in marine, freshwater, acid mine drainage, polluted soil, sedimentary rock and glacier environments, consistent with an important role in global carbon cycling.
