General Information: An alkane-degrading sulfate-reducing Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the saline water phase of an oil-water separator from a northern German oil field. Desulfococcus oleovorans, originally designated Desulfobacterium oleovorans, was isolated using hexadecane as a carbon source and has been used to determine the mechanism of anaerobic hydrocarbon degradation.
