Pseudomonas stutzeri

BioHazard Level:

Growth Temperature:

Appropriate growth media:
nutrient agar, nutrient broth

Genomic sources for restriction enzymes (at this website):
PsrI, PsuI

Gram Stain:
Pseudomonas stutzeri is Gram stain negative.

Pseudomonas stutzeri is aerobic.

Pseudomonas stutzeri is motile.

Taxonomic lineage:
Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; Pseudomonadales; Pseudomonadaceae; Pseudomonas; Pseudomonas stutzeri group

Industrial uses or economic implications:
Pseudomonas stutzeri can degrade carbon tetrachloride (used in some dry-cleaning) to carbon dioxide and other inert compounds, as where other organisms that can degrade carbon tetrachloride produce chloroform. Pseudomonas stutzeri is also being investigated for biodegradation of phenanthrene and other toxic organic chemicals.

Pseudomonas stutzeri strain KC was the first field scale demonstration of bioremediation. Pseudomonas stutzeri was used in an accident where approximately 25 gallons of carbon tetrachloride were dumped into an aquifer in School Craft, Michigan.
