Ralstonia eutropha JMP134 (and its catabolic plasmid, pJP4) is a well-known Gram negative bacteria able to degrade an impressive list of chloroaromatic compounds and chemically-related pollutants. In addition to its potential for bioremediation, this strain and others belonging to this species are models for study microbial production of polyhydroxyalkanoates, and chemolithoautotrophic metabolism in aerobic heterotrophs.
