Query: NC_010506:537833 Shewanella woodyi ATCC 51908, complete genome Lineage: Shewanella woodyi; Shewanella; Shewanellaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This luminous species was isolated from squid ink and seawater from depths of 200 to 300 m in the Alboran Sea. This respiratory (nonfermentive) organism is able to use nitrate or nitrite as a terminal electron acceptor. This organism is motile via a single polar flagellum.

General Information: Shewanella sediminis was isolated from sediment taken at a depth of 215 meters from an unexploded-ordinance-dumping site 50 nautical miles from Halifax Harbor, Canada in the Atlantic Ocean. This organism is able to degrade hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX) anaerobically at 10 degrees C. RDX is a member of a family of nitramine compounds which are used in the production of explosives. Shewanella are facultatively anaerobic, Gram-negative bacteria, motile by polar flagella, rod-like, and generally associated with aquatic or marine environments.
