Query: NC_014010:1392536 Candidatus Puniceispirillum marinum IMCC1322 chromosome, complete Lineage: Puniceispirillum marinum; Puniceispirillum; ; ; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Puniceispirillum marinum (strain IMCC1322) is a Gram-negative bacterium isolated from a surface seawater sample from the Western Pacific Ocean Margin (East Sea of Korea). This organism has no sequenced representatives but as a member of the SAR116 clade it is a cosmopolitan marine bacterioplanktonic assemblage. The organism contains putative CO-utilizing enzymes and has proteorhodopsin for a light-driven proton pump.

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.
