Xanthobacter autotrophicus Py2

Names Xanthobacter autotrophicus Py2
Accession numbers NC_009717, NC_009720
Background A propene oxidizer able to degrade trichloroethylene when it is grown on propene because of the presence of propene monooxygenase. Xanthobacter autotrophicus Py2, an aerobic bacterium, was isolated following enrichment on propene and 1-butene. It is able degrade trichloroethylene when grown on propene due to the presence of a propene monooxygenase. It also degrades alkenes, epoxides and ketones. (EBI Integr8)
