n1_4mer:GRV/n1_4mer:RV = (Global Relative Variance of OU patterns) / (Local Relative Variance of OU patterns)

n0_4mer:D = Distance between local and global OU patterns

n0_4mer:PS = Distance between 2 strands of same DNA molecule

Selected loci indicated by large D, increased GRV associated with decreased RV and moderate increase in PS

NC_014825: Ruminococcus albus 7 plasmid pRUMAL02, complete sequence

NCBI: NC_014825

Host Lineage: Ruminococcus albus; Ruminococcus; Ruminococcaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Environment: Host; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 40C. Ruminococcus albus 7 is a common rumen bacterium. This organism is able to degrade cellulose and also produces an antimicrobial compound that prevents the growth of Ruminococcus flavefaciens. The bacterium requires phenylacetic and phenylpropionic acids for maximal growth. The organism produces cellulosomes at the cell surface that are multimeric protein complexes that contain scaffolding proteins and degradative enzymes. Understanding the metabolism of plant polysaccharides may enable scientists to improve the productivity of ruminant organisms such as cattle.
