Polaromonas naphthalenivorans (strain CJ2) is a Gram-negative bacterium phylogenetically associated with the beta subdivision of the Proteobacteria. Polaromonas naphthalenivorans was isolated from naphthalene-contaminated, freshwater sediment. This organism is capable of aerobic degradation of naphthalene at temperatures of less than 20 degrees Celsius. Naphthalene is the simplest member of a class of important contaminants, the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). PAHs can be toxic and/or carcinogenic, therefore PAH contamination is of considerable concern. The ability of Polaromonas naphthalenivorans to degrade PAHs at low temperatures makes it a potential bioremediation agent.
