Query: NC_015145:3236445 Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans Sphe3 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans; Arthrobacter; Micrococcaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Country: Greece; Environment: Soil; Isolation: Creosote polluted soil at Perivleptos; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 30C. Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans is able to grow with phenanthrene as a sole carbon source. In addition, this organism transports phenanthrene into the cell either by passive diffusion when cells are grown on glucose, or by an active transport system when phenanthrene is the sole carbon source.

General Information: This strain was isolated from soil contaminated with gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane (lindane: a toxic insecticide) in Japan. Polychlorinated biphenyl degrading bacterium. Rhodococcus jostii is capable of degrading a wide variety of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), which are toxic compounds produced by industry, and is studied extensively for this reason. This microbe is being examined thoroughly under different environmental conditions in order to better understand metabolic pathways and gene functions.
