Query: NC_011886:2696671 Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus A6, complete genome Lineage: Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus; Arthrobacter; Micrococcaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria 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.

General Information: Isolated from soil at an explosives testing facility. Can transform hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX), a cyclic nitramine explosive. Many military ranges in the United States and Canada are contaminated with explosive and propellant residues. Of the nitroaromatic and nitramine explosives that exist on these sites, hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX) has a low sorption capacity and can migrate through soil into surface water and groundwater.
