Query: NC_014733:1073540 Methylovorus sp. MP688 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Methylovorus; Methylovorus; Methylophilaceae; Methylophilales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Methylotrophic bacteria are a group of bacteria which are able to grow aerobically at the expense of methanol as the sole source of carbon and energy, and therefore could serve as biocatalysts for the conversion of methanol to commercially valuable multicarbon compounds like amino acids and cytochromes. Pink-pigmented facultative methylotrophs of the genus Methylovorus are ubiquitous in soil, air and water environments. The MP688 strain was isolated from soil as an PQQ producer.

General Information: Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water. This organism is able to utilize methylamines, potentially significant greenhouse gases, as a sole source of energy. Methylovorus strains are strictly aerobic with respiratory metabolism, are obligate or restricted facultative methylotrophs, and utilize methanol as the carbon and energy source. They are found in activated sludge, mud, soil, pond water and plants.
