Delf·tia ac·id·o·vor·ans

(delf'shē-ă as'id-ō-vōr'anz)
Aerobic, non-spore-forming, gram-negative bacilli found in the environment (e.g., soil, water) and on plants including fruits and vegetables; reported as agent of bacteremia, intravenous drug use-related endocarditis, and acute suppurative otitis.

These three enzymes are encoded by three genes which have been identified in some bacteria like P putida UCC22 (Fukumori and Saint, 1997), Acinetobacter spp.YAA (Fujii et al., 1997), Delftia acidovorans 7N (Urata et al., 2004), Delftia tsuruhatensis AD9 (Liang et al., 2005), Frateuria sp.ANA-18(Murakami et al., 2003) and Delftia sp.AN3 (Zhang et al., 2008).

More recently, a team led by Nathan Magarvey, who is cross-appointed to the departments of biochemistry and chemistry at McMaster University, decided to investigate the other organism, Delftia acidovorans. "We had a hunch that these bacteria might be using non-ribosomal peptides, which my lab studies frequently," says Magarvey.
Delftia acidovorans lives in sticky biofilms that form on top of gold deposits, but exposure to dissolved gold ions can kill it.
Chemists have often pondered why the germ Delftia acidovorans is frequently found on the surface of tiny gold nuggets.
Even with such stringent preventive measures, process-introduced contamination is a rather common phenomenon, largely due to the presence of contaminants such as Delftia acidovorans in MDA reagents.
By looking at the DNA in biofilms that grow on gold grains collected from the Prophet gold mine in southeast Queensland, Australia , the University of Adelaide's Frank Reith and his colleagues discovered that 90 percent of the bacteria were of just two species Delftia acidovorans and Cupriavidus metallidurans.
