Query: NC_012856:1080000 Ralstonia pickettii 12D chromosome 1, complete genome Lineage: Ralstonia pickettii; Ralstonia; Burkholderiaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Isolation: Copper-contaminated sediment from a lake; Country: USA; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water, Host, Soil. Ralstonia pickettii can be isolated from a wide range of environmental and clinical samples. This species is a nocosomial pathogen. It is associated with infections caused by contaminated solutions, such as distilled water and intravenous solutions. Ralstonia pickettii strains resistant to heavy metals have also been isolated from heavy metal contaminated environments.

General Information: This organism was isolated from creosote-contaminated soil from the Champion International Superfund site in Libby, Montana, USA. This microbe, along with some others collected at this site, is able to rapidly mineralize 14C-labeled pyrene. Phylogenetic studies based on the rRNA 16S gene confirmed that strains collected at this site were distinct from one another and also from other known Mycobacterium isolates.
