Title Complete genome sequence of the heavy metal resistant bacterium Altererythrobacter atlanticus 26DY36(T), isolated from deep-sea sediment of the North Atlantic Mid-ocean ridge.
Journal Mar Genomics
Abstract Altererythrobacter atlanticus 26DY36(T) (CGMCC 1.12411(T)=JCM 18865(T)) was isolated from the North Atlantic Mid-Ocean Ridge. The strain is resistant to heavy metals, such as Mn(2+) (200 mM), Co(2+) (2.0mM), Cu(2+) (1mM), Zn(2+) (1mM), Hg(2+) (0.1mM) and Cd(2+) (0.5mM). Here we describe the genome sequence and annotation, as well as the features of the organism. A. atlanticus 26DY36(T) harbors a chromosome (3,386,291 bp) and a circular plasmid (88,815 bp). The genome contains 3322 protein-coding genes (2483 with predicted functions), 47 tRNA genes and 6 rRNA genes. A. atlanticus 26DY36(T) encodes dozens of genes related to heavy metal resistance and has potential applications in the bioremediation of heavy metal-contaminated environments.
