Query: NC_013194:963735 Candidatus Accumulibacter phosphatis clade IIA str. UW-1, complete Lineage: Accumulibacter phosphatis; Accumulibacter; ; ; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Isolation: enhanced biological phosphorus removal; Country: USA; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Sediment, Sludge. Candidatus Accumulibactor phosphatis is a polyphosphate-accumulating, aerobic, Gram-negative bacterium that has been identified in enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) wastewater treatment systems. Removal of phosphorus from wastewater is important to avoid eutrophication (excess nutrients) in surface waters.

General Information: Methylibium petroleiphilum strain PM1 (ATCC BAA-1232) was isolated in 1998 from the biofilter of a treatment plant in an oil refinery in Los Angeles, California, USA. Strain PM1 is capable of degrading aromatic compounds such as benzene, toluene and xylenes. Methyl tertiary-butyl ether-degrading bacterium. Methylibium petroleiphilum is a methylotroph (able to utilize reduced one-carbon compounds) able to degrade methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) under aerobic conditions. MTBE is a gasoline additive used as an oxygenate and to raise the octane number.
