Complete Genome Sequence of Dehalococcoides mccartyi Strain FL2, a Trichloroethene-respiring Anaerobe Isolated from Pristine Freshwater Sediment


Jun Yan, Yi Yang, Xiuying Li, Frank E. Löffler


Dehalococcoides mccartyi strain FL2 couples growth to hydrogen oxidation and reductive dechlorination of trichloroethene and cis- and trans-1,2-dichloroethenes. Strain FL2 has a 1.42-Mb genome with a G+C content of 47.0% and carries 1,465 protein-coding sequences, including 24 reductive dehalogenase genes.
