Query: NC_008758:12000 Polaromonas naphthalenivorans CJ2 plasmid pPNAP02, complete Lineage: Polaromonas naphthalenivorans; Polaromonas; Comamonadaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Naphthalene-degrading bacterium. Polaromonas naphthalenivorans was isolated from naphthalene-contaminated, freshwater sediment. This organism is capable of aerobic degradation of naphthalene at temperatures of less than 20 degrees C. Naphthalene is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH). PAHs can be toxic and/or carcinogenic, therefore PAH contamination is of considerable concern.

General Information: This species was isolated from soil enriched with acetamide in Delft in the Netherlands. It was originally classified as Comamonas acidivorans in 1926, and redescribed and characterized in 1999. This organism is found in soil, sediment, activated sludge, crude oil, water, and various clinical samples.
