Methylovorus sp. MP688

Names Methylovorus sp. MP688
Accession numbers NC_014733
Background Methylotrophic bacteria are a group of bacteria which are able to grow aerobically at the expense of one-carbon compounds, such as methanol, as the sole source of carbon and energy and therefore could serve as biocatalysts for the conversion of methanol to commercially valuable multicarbon compounds like amino acids and cytochromes. Methylovorus sp. (strain MP688) is an aerobic, pink-pigmented, facultative methylotrophs, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from soil and produces pyrroloquinoline quinone which has potential pharmaceutical applications.
