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_014100:1144463 Caulobacter segnis ATCC 21756 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Caulobacter segnis; Caulobacter; Caulobacteraceae; Caulobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolation: Soil; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water. Caulobacter segnis strain ATCC 21756 is a prostheca-less bacterium belonging to the genus Caulobacter; it was isolated from soil although its habitat is considered to be fresh-water. The absence of a stalk in this genus makes this an interesting bacterium to study.
