Chelativorans sp. BNC1

Names Chelativorans sp. BNC1
Accession numbers NC_008242, NC_008243, NC_008244, NC_008254
Background Mesorhizobium sp. BNC1. This organism was isolated from a mixed-culture enriched from sewage using the chelating agent EDTA (binds divalent cations - ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid) as the sole carbon and nitrogen source. EDTA is often found at toxic waste sites where it is bound to metals and radionuclides, which affects bioremediation efforts. This bacterium is capable of EDTA degradation by itself.
