Query: NC_015145:3236445 Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans Sphe3 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans; Arthrobacter; Micrococcaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Country: Greece; Environment: Soil; Isolation: Creosote polluted soil at Perivleptos; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 30C. Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans is able to grow with phenanthrene as a sole carbon source. In addition, this organism transports phenanthrene into the cell either by passive diffusion when cells are grown on glucose, or by an active transport system when phenanthrene is the sole carbon source.

General Information: Bacteria of the genus Arthrobacter are ubiquitous in the environment. They are characterized by nutritional versatility and pronounced resistance to desiccation, long-term starvation, toxic compounds, oxidative stress, and other environmental stress conditions. Arthrobacter nitroguajacolicus strain Rü61a was previously isolated from sludge of the biological wastewater treatment plant of a coal tar refining company, based on its ability to utilize quinaldine (2-methylquinoline) as source of carbon and energy.
