Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes

Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes is an aerobic, Gram negative soil bacterium that was first isolated from swimming pool water.[1] It can also be found in cutting fluid.It is able to use cyanide as a nitrogen source, and as a result it may be used for bioremediation.[2] Based on 16S rRNA analysis, P. pseudoalcaligenes has been placed in the P. aeruginosa group.[3]
