Draft Genome Sequence of Cyclohexylamine-Degrading Strain Acinetobacter sp. YT-02 Isolated
Acinetobacter sp. YT-02, a Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the activated sludge from a sodium N-cyclohexylsulfamate production plant, has the ability to degrade cyclohexylamine. It was classified as a member of Acinetobacter sp., a Gram-negative bacterium, sharing a 16S rRNA gene sequence identity of 99% with Acinetobacter guangdongensis strain 1NM-4. It could degrade 10 mmol/L cyclohexylamine within 22 h. Based on the identified metabolite, the metabolic pathway of cyclohexylamine could be postulated as it was degraded via cyclohexanone. Draft genome sequence of this strain (2,993, 647 bp of chromosome length) is presented here. We further identified the genes encoding the enzymes involved in cyclohexylamine oxidation to cyclohexanone and the subsequent downstream metabolic pathway of cyclohexanone oxidation. Strain YT-02 has the potentiality to be applied in the treatment of the pollutant cyclohexylamine, and it could also be treated as a research material to study the degradation mechanism of cyclohexylamine.
