A methyl parathion (MP) degrading bacterial strain, designated MP-1(T), was isolated from a waste land where pesticides were formerly manufactured in Jiangsu province, China. Polyphasic taxonomic studies showed that MP-1(T) is a Gram-stain-negative, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped and motile bacterium. The bacterium could grow at salinities of 0-1 % (w/v) and… (More)
Burkholderia sp. strain MP-1 was isolated from pesticide-contaminated soil. Herein, we report the draft genome sequence of strain MP-1, which contains 168 contigs of 8,611,053 bp, with a G+C content of 62.55% and 7,631 protein-coding genes.
A methyl parathion hydrolase (MPH) gene, bjmpd, was cloned from a newly isolated MP-degrading bacterial strain, Burkholderia jiangsuensis MP-1T and heterologously expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3). Although the amino acid sequence of the bjmpd-encoded enzyme, named BjMPH, differed from that of MPH from Pseudomonas sp. WBC-3 (PsMPH) in only three… (More)
