Query: NC_008340:480399 Alkalilimnicola ehrlichei MLHE-1, complete genome Lineage: Alkalilimnicola ehrlichii; Alkalilimnicola; Ectothiorhodospiraceae; Chromatiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This chemoautotrophic strain was isolated from Mono Lake in California, which contains arsenic and has high pH and salt concentrations. Arsenite-oxidizing bacterium. Alkalilimnicola ehrlichei is capable of growth with arsenite [As(III)] as the electron donor with nitrate as electron acceptor. It may be responsible for production of arsenate [As(V)] in anoxic lake bottom.

General Information: Country: USA; Environment: Sludge, Fresh water; Isolation: Industrial sludge contaminated; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 30C. Pseudonocardia members are abundant in diverse environments, and are known to degrade a variety of pollutants. These bacteria are also important in biocatalysis applications and in the production of antibiotics. Pseudonocardia dioxanivorans was first isolated from 1,4-dioxane containing sludge. This organism is able to grow using 1,4-dioxane, a toxic compound used as an industrial solvent, as the sole carbon source.
