Query: NC_008711:3520515 Arthrobacter aurescens TC1, complete genome Lineage: Arthrobacter aurescens; Arthrobacter; Micrococcaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: The TC1 strain was isolated from a South Dakota, USA spill site soil that contained high concentrations (up to 29,000 microg/ml) of atrazine. Converts agricultural biomass to ethanol. Arthrobacter aurescens is found worldwide in the soil, water, and subsurface. It breaks down organic matter and is able to transform heavy metals into less toxic forms, such as the conversion of mercury salts into the neutral metal. It is also capable of utilizing t-anethole as a sole carbon source, and transforming it with high yield into valuable aromatic compounds which could potentially be used for aromas and flavorings.

General Information: Bacteria of the genus Arthrobacter are ubiquitous in the environment. They are characterized by nutritional versatility and pronounced resistance to desiccation, long-term starvation, toxic compounds, oxidative stress, and other environmental stress conditions. Arthrobacter nitroguajacolicus strain Rü61a was previously isolated from sludge of the biological wastewater treatment plant of a coal tar refining company, based on its ability to utilize quinaldine (2-methylquinoline) as source of carbon and energy.
