An obligately aerobic chemoheterotrophic bacterium (strain F199) previously isolated from Southeast Coastal Plain subsurface sediments and shown to degrade toluene, naphthalene, and other aromatic compounds (J. K. Fredrickson, F. J. Brockman, D. J. Workman, S. W. Li, and T. O. Stevens, Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 57:796-803, 1991) was characterized by analysis of its 16S rRNA nucleotide base sequence and cellular lipid composition. Strain F199 contained 2-OH14:0 and 18:1 omega 7c as the… CONTINUE READING
