General Information: This is the type strain for this species and has been isolated from municipal sludge, Denmark. It can dechlorinate chlorinated phenolic compounds such as PCBs and some pesticides. Hydrocarbon dehalogenator. This organism can dehalogenate a variety of hydrocarbons and can utilize fumarate, sulfite, and thiosulfate (but not thiousulfate) as terminal electron acceptors. Some important pollutants such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) may be degraded by this organism. Gram-positive, metal-reducing, dehalorespiring.
