Query: NC_009831:1255995 Shewanella sediminis HAW-EB3, complete genome Lineage: Shewanella sediminis; Shewanella; Shewanellaceae; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Shewanella sediminis was isolated from sediment taken at a depth of 215 meters from an unexploded-ordinance-dumping site 50 nautical miles from Halifax Harbor, Canada in the Atlantic Ocean. This organism is able to degrade hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX) anaerobically at 10 degrees C. RDX is a member of a family of nitramine compounds which are used in the production of explosives. Shewanella are facultatively anaerobic, Gram-negative bacteria, motile by polar flagella, rod-like, and generally associated with aquatic or marine environments.

General Information: Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water. This organism is able to utilize methylamines, potentially significant greenhouse gases, as a sole source of energy. Methylovorus strains are strictly aerobic with respiratory metabolism, are obligate or restricted facultative methylotrophs, and utilize methanol as the carbon and energy source. They are found in activated sludge, mud, soil, pond water and plants.
