The genus Alcanivorax is a group of marine bacteria that exclusively uses petroleum oil hydrocarbons as sources of carbon and energy, and has been used for bioremediative interventions in polluted marine and coastal systems. In addition, Alcanivorax species have obvious potential to produce biocatalysts in non-polluting industrial processes and to act as a biosensor for in situ monitoring of aromatic or aliphatic compounds. Alcanivorax dieselolei (strain DSM 16502 / CGMCC 1.3690 / B-5) is an aerobic, motile, halophilic, alkane degrader, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from oil-contaminated surface water of the Bohai Sea at the Yellow River dock at the side of the Shengli oilfield. It can grow on a restricted spectrum of organic compounds, including some organic acids, and alkanes (C5-C36) as sole sources of carbon and energy. A.dieselolei can produce a novel linear lipoaminobiosurfactant, characterized as a proline lipid. The cells are rod-shaped with lophotrichous flagella and their optimal growth temperature is between 4 and 55 degrees Celsius. A.dieselolei is sensitive to neomycin, kanamycin, amikacin and polymyxin B, but resistant to fortum, cefuroxime, cephradin, cefazolin, cefalexin, piperacillin, carbenicillin, ampicillin, oxacillin, penicillin, erythromycin, minomycin, vibramycin, tetracycline, gentamicin, cefobid, rocephin, vancomycin, ofloxacin, midecamycin, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, furazolidone, clindamycin, chloromycetin and co-trimoxazole.
