NC_008554:4586543 Syntrophobacter fumaroxidans MPOB, complete genome
Host Lineage: Syntrophobacter fumaroxidans; Syntrophobacter; Syntrophobacteraceae; Syntrophobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: This organism is a syntrophic propionate-oxidizing bacterium isolated from granular sludge from an anaerobic sludge bed reactor treating sugar-beet processing wastewater. Propionate-oxidizing bacterium. This organism is able to oxidize propionate when grown in co-culture with hydrogen-consuming methanogens (syntrophic metabolism). This organism can also ferment fumarate when not in co-culture.
