Query: NC_011992:3550566 Acidovorax ebreus TPSY, complete genome Lineage: Acidovorax ebreus; Acidovorax; Comamonadaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Acidovorax ebreus is able to anaerobically oxidize iron and uranium when coupled with the reduction of nitrate. Acidovorax ebreus sp. TPSY may be important for the remediation of uranium in contaminated environments. Isolated from groundwater collected from the U.S. Department of Energy Integrated Field Research Challenge site at Oak Ridge, TN, USA.

General Information: This organism is able to reduce uranium and may be useful for in situ bioremediation of uranium. An iron(III)-reducing bacterium isolated from the uranium-contaminated subsurface of the U.S. Department of Energy NABIR Field Research Center (FRC), Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA. Several recent studies have verified using cultivation-independent methods that the Geobacteraceae are predominant in subsurface environments where dissimilatory metal reduction is important to the remediation of uranium and other contaminants.
