Query: NC_008347:3034100 Maricaulis maris MCS10, complete genome Lineage: Maricaulis maris; Maricaulis; Hyphomonadaceae; Rhodobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Marine oligotrophs. Maricaulis maris MCS10 was isolated from Puget Sound in Washington, USA. Formerly Caulobacter maris, this organism inhabits marine environments and plays an important part in biogeochemical cycling of organic nutrients. This bacterium undergoes an unusual developmental cycle in which a swarming motile cell becomes a stalked cell that is attached to a solid surface. The stalked cell then undergoes asymmetric cell division and produces one flagellated motile daughter cell and one stalked daughter cell.

General Information: Alkene-degrading bacterium. Xanthobacter autotrophicus is a nitrogen-fixing methylotroph, commonly isolated from organic rich soil, sediment and water. This organism uses an alkene-specific monooxygenase to convert propene to epoxypropane. This monooxygenase is also able to catalyze the initial step in the cometabolism of chlorinated alkenes such as vinyl chloride and trichloroethene. The Xanthobacter autotrophicus alkene monooxygenase and other genes involved in alkene degradation are located on a 320 kb megaplasmid.
