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.
