Query: NC_008825:3298506 Methylibium petroleiphilum PM1, complete genome Lineage: Methylibium petroleiphilum; Methylibium; ; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Methylibium petroleiphilum strain PM1 (ATCC BAA-1232) was isolated in 1998 from the biofilter of a treatment plant in an oil refinery in Los Angeles, California, USA. Strain PM1 is capable of degrading aromatic compounds such as benzene, toluene and xylenes. Methyl tertiary-butyl ether-degrading bacterium. Methylibium petroleiphilum is a methylotroph (able to utilize reduced one-carbon compounds) able to degrade methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) under aerobic conditions. MTBE is a gasoline additive used as an oxygenate and to raise the octane number.

General Information: Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus A6 (DSM 12829) was isolated from soil at Fort Collins, Colorado, USA and is able to use 4-chlorophenol as a sole source of carbon and energy. This organism can degrade 4-chlorophenol in soil at temperatures ranging from 5 to 28 degrees C making it a good candidate for bioremediation. Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus can degrade high concentrations of para-substituted phenols, such as 4-chlorophenol and 4-nitrophenol and can survive under harsh conditions, such as cold temperature and during starvation in soil.
