Complete Genome Sequence of the Nicotine-Degrading Pseudomonas Putida Strain S16

J Bacteriol. 2011 Oct;193(19):5541-2. doi: 10.1128/JB.05663-11.


Pseudomonas putida S16 is an efficient degrader of nicotine. The complete genome of strain S16 (5,984,790 bp in length) includes genes related to catabolism of aromatic and heterocyclic compounds. The genes of enzymes in the core genome and a genomic island encode the proteins responsible for nicotine catabolism.
