Query: NC_014623:7331860 Stigmatella aurantiaca DW4/3-1 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Stigmatella aurantiaca; Stigmatella; Cystobacteraceae; Myxococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Social gliding soil bacterium. Stigmatella aurantica, commonly isolated from rotting wood and bark, is a member of a group of organisms called myxobacteria. These organisms have a complex development and differentiation life cycle. When cell density increases, the organism switches to "social motility" where aggregates of cells can gather together into masses termed fruiting bodies that may consist of up to 100,000 cells. Stigmatella aurantica produces a number of compounds, such as aurafuron A and stigmatellin, which may be important as anti-cancer agents.

General Information: Dehalogenimonas lykanthroporepellens BL-DC-9 is a strictly anaerobic, reductively dechlorinating Gram-negative bacterium isolated from groundwater at a superfund (law designs to clean up sites contaminated with hazardous substances) site located near Baton Rouge, USA, in an area contaminated by high concentrations of several chlorinated alkanes and alkenes. Dehalogenimonas lykanthroporepellens is able to reductively dehalogenate polychlorinated alkanes such as 1,2,3-trichloropropane and 1,2-dichloroethane.
