Query: NC_012803:1839809 Micrococcus luteus NCTC 2665, complete genome Lineage: Micrococcus luteus; Micrococcus; Micrococcaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Soil. Micrococcus luteus NCTC 2665 has potential in bioremediation due to its ability to sequester metals (i.e. gold and strontium), and it is being used for gold concentration from low-abundance ores. Micrococcus luteus was originally isolated by Alexander Fleming in 1929 as Micrococcus lysodeikticus. This organism can be found in many environments including soil, water, animals, and dairy products. Micrococcus luteus is able to survive in the environment for long periods and has been isolated from inclusions in amber.

General Information: Country: Greece; Environment: Soil; Isolation: Creosote polluted soil at Perivleptos; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 30C. Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans is able to grow with phenanthrene as a sole carbon source. In addition, this organism transports phenanthrene into the cell either by passive diffusion when cells are grown on glucose, or by an active transport system when phenanthrene is the sole carbon source.
