Abstrakt

Aminobacter sp. MSH1 (CIP 110285) can use the pesticide dichlobenil and its recalcitrant transformation product, 2,6-dichlorobenzamide (BAM), as sole source of carbon, nitrogen, and energy. The concentration of BAM in groundwater often exceeds the threshold limit for drinking water, requiring additional treatment in drinking water treatment plants or closure of the affected abstraction wells. Biological treatment with MSH1 is considered a potential sustainable alternative to remediate BAM-contamination in drinking water production. We present the complete genome of MSH1, which was determined independently in two institutes at Aarhus University and KU Leuven. Divergences were observed between the two genomes, i.e. one of them lacked four plasmids compared to the other. Besides the circular chromosome and the two previously described plasmids involved in BAM catabolism, pBAM1 and pBAM2, the genome of MSH1 contained two megaplasmids and three smaller plasmids. The MSH1 substrain from KU Leuven showed a reduced genome lacking a megaplasmid and three smaller plasmids and was designated substrain MK1, whereas the Aarhus variant with all plasmids was designated substrain DK1. A plasmid stability experiment indicate that substrain DK1 may have a polyploid chromosome when growing in R2B medium with more chromosomes than plasmids per cell. Finally, strain MSH1 is reassigned as Aminobacter niigataensis MSH1.
