Query: NC_021150:4929670 Azotobacter vinelandii CA6, complete genome

Lineage: Azotobacter vinelandii; Azotobacter; Pseudomonadaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was first isolated from the soil in Vineland, New Jersey, although it is found worldwide. It is a large obligate aerobe that has one of the highest respiratory rates of any organism. Azotobacter vinelandii also produces a number of unusual nitrogenases which allow it to fix atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia, a compound it can then use as a nitrogen source. It protects the oxygen-sensitive nitrogenase enzymes through its high respiratory rate, which sequesters the nitrogenase complexes in an anoxic environment. This organism has a number of unusual characteristics. Under extreme environmental conditions, the cell will produce a cyst that is resistant to dessication and is surrounded by two capsular polysaccharide layers. This organism produces two industrially important polysaccharides, poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) and alginate. PHB is a thermoplastic biopolymer, and alginate is used in the food industry. Alginate is also used by the pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa to infect the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients.

Subject: NC_015259:734795 Polymorphum gilvum SL003B-26A1 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Polymorphum gilvum; Polymorphum; ; ; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Polymorphum gilvum SL003B-26A1 is a type strain of a newly published novel species in the novel genus Polymorphum. It was isolated from a crude oil-polluted saline soil in Shengli Oilfield, China and could use the crude oil as the sole carbon source. Oil pollution has become a global issue because of its severe ecological impact and destruction. Bioremediation is proved to be an effective process to restore the oil polluted environments. The complete genome sequence of Polymorphum gilvum SL003B-26A1 provides new strategies for bioremediation of oil contaminated environment.
