Query: NC_009620:1531000 Sinorhizobium medicae WSM419 plasmid pSMED01, complete sequence Lineage: Sinorhizobium medicae; Sinorhizobium; Rhizobiaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Nitrogen-fixing soil bacterium. This species was isolated from Medicago truncatula, where it forms nitrogen-fixing root nodules. Effective nitrogen fixing, aerobic microsymbiont of a diverse range of annual Medicago (medic) species. Has saprophytic competence and acid tolerance properties. Isolated in 1981 from a nodule recovered from the roots of an annual medic (Medicago murex) growing south of Tempio in Sardinia.

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.
