Query: NC_008699:3775561 Nocardioides sp. JS614, complete genome Lineage: Nocardioides; Nocardioides; Nocardioidaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This bacterium grows quickly and efficiently on media containing vinyl chloride and ethene. If starved of vinyl chloride for one day, it will not recover for more than 40 days. This strain was placed in the Nocardioides genus on the basis of 16S rRNA analysis.

General Information: First isolated from the Potomac river downstream of Washington, DC, USA in 1987. This organism actively moves towards metal attractants such as iron and manganese oxides, which are insoluble, and produces type IV pili for attachment to the insoluble substrates. Common metal-reducing bacterium. This organism, similar to what is observed in Geobacteria sulfurreducens, couples the oxidation of organic molecules to the reduction of iron by using insoluble Fe (III) as an electron acceptor under anaerobic conditions. This bacterium plays an imporant part of the nutrient cycling in aquatic environments. The cell can also use uranium and plutonium, therefore, this organism and may be important for the bioremediation of contaminated waste sites.
