A phylogenetic tree illustrating the relationships among all the “OHCB” isolated from the Arabian Gulf in our laboratory. The tree is constructed by neighbor-joining method. Numbers at nodes indicate bootstrap values of 2000 resembling; 0.1 denotes the genetic distance. Strains in bold are type strains from the GenBank database; highlighted strains are the “OHCB” used in this study; the remaining are hydrocarbonoclastic strains isolated in our laboratory. Three nonobligate hydrocarbonoclastic species, Microbacterium paludicola, Pseudomonas songnenensis and Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans were included for comparison
