A bacterium, designated F199, utilized toluene, naphthalene, dibenzothiophene, salicylate, benzoate, p-cresol, and all isomers of xylene as a sole carbon and energy source. This bacterium was isolated from Middendorf sediments, a Cretaceous age formation that underlies the Southeast Coastal Plain in South Carolina, at a depth of approximately 410 m. F199 is a gram-positive, irregular-shaped bacterium that has a varied cell morphology that is dependent on culture medium type and growth stage… CONTINUE READING
