Pseudomonas sp. strain TKP does not degrade γ-hexachlorocyclohexane (γ-HCH), but it persistently coexists with the γ-HCH-degrading Sphingobium sp. strain TKS in a mixed culture enriched by γ-HCH. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of strain TKP, which consists of one circular chromosome with a size of 7 Mb.
Here, we report the complete genome sequence of a γ-hexachlorocyclohexane (γ-HCH)-degrading bacterium,Sphingobiumsp. strain MI1205. The genome of MI1205 consists of two chromosomes and four plasmids with sizes of 33 to 292 kb. All thelingenes for γ-HCH metabolism are dispersed on the four plasmids.
γ-Hexachlorocyclohexane (γ-HCH) is a recalcitrant man-made chlorinated pesticide. Here, the complete genome sequences of four γ-HCH-degrading sphingomonad strains, which are most unlikely to have been derived from one ancestral γ-HCH degrader, were compared. Together with several experimental data, we showed that (i) all the four strains carry almost(More)
Comamonas thiooxydans strain PHE2-6 (NBRC 110656), which was isolated from a trichloroethene-contaminated site in Japan, utilizes phenol as a sole source of carbon and cometabolizes cis- and trans-dichloroethenes. We report here the draft genome sequence of this strain, containing 5,309,680 bp, with 60.6% G+C content.
