Abstract
A novel alphaproteobacterium isolated from freshwater sediments, strain pMbN1, degrades 4-methylbenzoate to CO2 under nitrate-reducing conditions. While strain pMbN1 utilizes several benzoate derivatives and other polar aromatic compounds, it cannot degrade p-xylene or other hydrocarbons. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain pMbN1 is affiliated with the genus Magnetospirillum.
