Cupriavidus sp. strain SK-4 is a bacterium capable of growing aerobically on monochlorobiphenyls and dichlorobiphenyls as the sole carbon sources for growth. Here, we report its draft genome sequence with the aim of facilitating an understanding of polychlorinated biphenyl biodegradation mechanisms.
In a previous study, three bacterial strains isolated from tropical hydrocarbon-contaminated soils and phylogenetically identified as Achromobacter sp. strain SL1, Pseudomonas sp. strain SL4 and Microbacterium esteraromaticum strain SL6 displayed angular dioxygenation and mineralization of carbazole in batch cultures. In this study, the ability of these(More)
Difference in mercuric ion removal by resting and growing cells of two mercury-resistant yeast strains, identified as Yarrowia spp. (strains Idd1 and Idd2), were studied. Resting cells of strain Idd2 exhibited high maximum Hg2+ removal capacity (59 mg mercury per g dry cell weight [gdw−1]) by adsorption than those of resting cells of strain Idd1 (32 mg(More)
We report the draft genome sequence of Cupriavidus sp. strain SK-3, which can use 4-chlorobiphenyl and 4-clorobenzoic acid as the sole carbon source for growth. The draft genome sequence allowed the study of the polychlorinated biphenyl degradation mechanism and the recharacterization of the strain SK-3 as a Cupriavidus species.
