Complete genome sequence of Methylomonas denitrificans strain FJG1, an obligate aerobic methanotroph that can couple methane oxidation with denitrification.

Authors: Orata, Fabini D and Kits, K Dimitri and Stein, Lisa Y

Methylomonas denitrificans strain FJG1 is a member of the gammaproteobacterial methanotrophs. The sequenced genome of FJG1 reveals the presence of genes that encode methane, methanol, formaldehyde, and formate oxidation. It also contains genes that encode enzymes for nitrate reduction to nitrous oxide, consistent with the ability of FJG1 to couple denitrification with methane oxidation. Copyright © 2018 Orata et al.
