Query: NC_008782:867344 Acidovorax sp. JS42, complete genome

Lineage: Acidovorax; Acidovorax; Comamonadaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Acidovorax sp. JS42, formerly Pseudomonas sp. JS42, was isolated from nitrobenzene-contaminated sediment and is capable of using 2-nitrotolulene as a sole carbon and energy source. 2-nitrotolulene, a nitroaromatic compound, is used in the manufacture of dyes, pigments and explosives. Nitroaromatic compounds, which contain an aromatic ring with one or more nitro groups attached, are a significant contaminant in industrial soils. Acidovorax sp. JS42 degrades 2-nitrotolulene by first removing the nitro moiety producing 3-methylcatechol. The enzyme involved in this process, 2-nitrotolulene dioxygenase, has been purified and characterized.

Subject: NC_008048:389645 Sphingopyxis alaskensis RB2256, complete genome

Lineage: Sphingopyxis alaskensis; Sphingopyxis; Sphingomonadaceae; Sphingomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolated from Resurrection Bay in the Gulf of Alaska. It is a model oligotrophic organism and forms a very small cell size. his genus was created from the Sphingomonas genus on the basis of phylogenetic, phenotypic, and chemotaxonomic characteristics. Sphingopyxis alaskensis is one of the most numerically abundant microbes found in oligotrophic marine waters and is an important contributor of biomass.
