Query: NC_008782:867344 Acidovorax sp. JS42, complete genome

Lineage: Acidovorax; Acidovorax; Comamonadaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Acidovorax sp. JS42, formerly Pseudomonas sp. JS42, was isolated from nitrobenzene-contaminated sediment and is capable of using 2-nitrotolulene as a sole carbon and energy source. 2-nitrotolulene, a nitroaromatic compound, is used in the manufacture of dyes, pigments and explosives. Nitroaromatic compounds, which contain an aromatic ring with one or more nitro groups attached, are a significant contaminant in industrial soils. Acidovorax sp. JS42 degrades 2-nitrotolulene by first removing the nitro moiety producing 3-methylcatechol. The enzyme involved in this process, 2-nitrotolulene dioxygenase, has been purified and characterized.

Subject: NC_010338:2443765 Caulobacter sp. K31, complete genome

Lineage: Caulobacter; Caulobacter; Caulobacteraceae; Caulobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Caulobacter strain K31 was isolated in an enrichment culture for chlorophenol-tolerant bacteria in groundwater from Karkola, Finland, which percolates through nutrient-poor silt and clay, and is cold (7-8oC), oxygen-deficient, iron-rich, and mildly acidic (pH 6-6.5).
