Query: NC_008525:108687 Pediococcus pentosaceus ATCC 25745, complete genome

Lineage: Pediococcus pentosaceus; Pediococcus; Lactobacillaceae; Lactobacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Use in fermentation of food products. A distinctive characteristic of pediococci is their ability to form tetrads via cell division in two perpendicular directions in a single plane. Like other lactic acid bacteria, species of Pediococcus are acid tolerant, cannot synthesize porphyrins, and possess a strictly fermentative (homofermentative) facultatively anaerobic metabolism with lactic acid as the major metabolic end product. They also occur in such food products as cured meat, raw sausages, and marinated fish, and are are used for biotechnological processing and preservation of foods. This bacterium can be isolated from a variety of plant materials and bacterial-ripened cheeses. This organism is used as an acid producing starter culture in the fermentation of some sausages, cucumbers, green beans, soy milk, and silage. Some strains have been reported to contain several (3-5) resident plasmids that render the bacterium capable of fermenting some sugars (raffinose, melibiose, and sucrose), as well as producing bacteriocins.

Subject: NC_007643:185135 Rhodospirillum rubrum ATCC 11170, complete genome

Lineage: Rhodospirillum rubrum; Rhodospirillum; Rhodospirillaceae; Rhodospirillales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This bacterium can grow using carbon monoxide as the sole carbon and energy source and the cells contain a well characterized nitrogenase system that is post-translationally modified by ADP-ribosylation. Phototrophic bacterium. This organism is an anoxygenic phototrophic bacterium that does not produce oxygen, but instead produces extracellular elemental sulfur when harvesting light energy. The bacterium lacks the light harvesting complex 2 (LHC2) normally found in photosynthetic bacteria meaning it contains one of the simplest photosynthetic systems studied.
