Achromobacter xylosoxidans (strain A8)

General information

Species:  Achromobacter xylosoxidans (strain A8)
Species code: ACHXA
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Betaproteobacteria; Burkholderiales; Alcaligenaceae; Achromobacter (TaxID: 762376) [NEWT/ NCBI]
Description: 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).
