Achromobacter xylosoxidans A8

Names Achromobacter xylosoxidans A8
Accession numbers NC_014640, NC_014641, NC_014642
Background Achromobacter xylosoxidans (strain A8) is an anaerobic, halophilic, nonmotile Gram-positive bacterium isolated from soil contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls. It can use 2-chlorobenzoate and 2,5-dichlorobenzoate as sole sources of carbon and energy. Besides genes for utilization of xenobiotic organic substrates it encodes genes associated with pathogenesis, toxin production and resistance. (Adapted from PMID: 21097610). (EBI Integr8)
