2017 - UH - Hemen - Pseudomonas nitroreducens DF05


Pnitroreducens DF05 is a Gram negative, motile, aerobic, rod-shaped and psychrotrophic bacterium that was isolated from contaminated San Jacinto River sediment near River Terrace Park in Channelview, Texas. The draft genome of strain DF05 consists of a total of 192 contigs assembled at the scaffold level totaling 6,487,527 bp and encoding for 5862 functional proteins, 1116 of which are annotated as hypothetical proteins. The bacterial chromosome has a GC content of 65.15% and contains 22 rRNA and 70 tRNA loci. In addition, approximately 142 proteins localized on the bacterial chromosome are associated with metabolism of aromatic compounds. A single plasmid approximately 95 kb in size was also detected carrying copies of RNA genes and multiple phage assembly proteins.
