Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus A6

Names Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus A6
Accession numbers NC_011879, NC_011881, NC_011886
Background Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus (strain A6) is a Gram-positive actinobacterium capable of mineralizing several substituted phenols such as 4-chlorophenol (4-CP), 4-nitrophenol (4-NP) and phenol as a sole source of carbon and energy under mesophilic (28 1 degrees Celsius) as well as under psychrophilic (5 1 degrees Celsius) conditions. It was isolated from soil at Fort Collins, Colorado. The strain degrades 4-CP via hydroxyquinol, which is a novel route for aerobic microbial degradation of this compound. The ability of this microorganism to degrade mixtures of compounds at low temperatures makes A. chlorophenolicus a promising inoculant for biodegradation of phenolic compounds under environmental conditions as they occur at polluted sites.
