Query: NC_008260:2340824 Alcanivorax borkumensis SK2, complete genome

Lineage: Alcanivorax borkumensis; Alcanivorax; Alcanivoracaceae; Oceanospirillales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This bacterium was isolated from a seawater sediment sample in the North Sea. The species is able to use Mihagol-S (C14,15-n-alkanes) as a principal carbon source. Using n-alkanes as a sole carbon source causes the strains to produce extracellular and membrane-bound surface-active glucose lipids. Phenotypic analysis showed a restricted nutritional profile, high halotolerance, the absence of fermentative metabolism, and a low G+C content. This, in combination with a 16S phylogenetic study, allowed the placing of this organism into a new genus.

Subject: NC_012969:2476318 Methylovorus glucosetrophus SIP3-4 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Methylovorus glucosotrophus; Methylovorus; Methylophilaceae; Methylophilales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water. This organism is able to utilize methylamines, potentially significant greenhouse gases, as a sole source of energy. Methylovorus strains are strictly aerobic with respiratory metabolism, are obligate or restricted facultative methylotrophs, and utilize methanol as the carbon and energy source. They are found in activated sludge, mud, soil, pond water and plants.
