Alcaligenes denitrificans

Alcaligenes denitrificans is a gram-negative, oxidase and catalase-positive, strictly aerobic, motile bacterium with peritrichous flagella, from the genus of Alcaligenes.[4][5] Based on 16S rDNA sequence analysis and the low degree of DNA relatedness between other members of Achromobacter species, Yabuuchi et al proposes that Alcaligenes denitrificans should be classified as a subspecies of Achromobacter xylosoxidans (Alcaligenes xylosoxidans subsp. denitrificans).[4][6]
