Title: Gene Determinants for Mercury Bioremediation as Revealed by Draft Genome Sequence Analysis of Stenotrophomonas sp. Strain MA5

Abstract

A soilborne Stenotrophomonas sp. strain (MA5) that is resistant to mercury was isolated. A draft genome sequence-based analysis revealed a suite of gene determinants to resist mercury and other heavy metals, multidrug efflux, stress response, and membrane transport, and these provide cues to a suite of mechanisms that underpin cellular survival in contaminated soil.
