Query: NC_006677:1596560 Gluconobacter oxydans 621H, complete genome

Lineage: Gluconobacter oxydans; Gluconobacter; Acetobacteraceae; Rhodospirillales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Industrially useful bacterium. Gluconobacter oxydans is a member of the Acetobacteraceae family within the alpha proteobacteria and can be isolated from flowers, fruits, and fermented beverages. This organism uses membrane-associated dehydrogenases to incompletely oxidize a wide variety of carbohydrates and alcohols. Oxidation occurs in the periplasm with the products being released into the medium via outer membrane porins and the electrons entering the electron transport chain. Able to oxidize large amounts of substrates, making it useful for industrial purposes. Among other applications, it has been used to produce 2-ketogluconic for iso-ascorbic acid production, 5-ketogluconic acid from glucose for tartaric acid production, and L-sorbose from sorbitol for vitamin C synthesis.

Subject: NC_008701:1582839 Pyrobaculum islandicum DSM 4184, complete genome

Lineage: Pyrobaculum islandicum; Pyrobaculum; Thermoproteaceae; Thermoproteales; Crenarchaeota; Archaea

General Information: Hyperthermophilic anaerobe. Pyrobaculum islandicum was isolated from water from a geothermal power plant in Iceland. This organism is able to grow lithotrophically and organotrophically using hydrogen or organic matter as the electron donors and sulfur, sulfite, and thiosulfate as electron acceptors.
