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_009718:799431 Fervidobacterium nodosum Rt17-B1, complete genome

Lineage: Fervidobacterium nodosum; Fervidobacterium; Thermotogaceae; Thermotogales; Thermotogae; Bacteria

General Information: Fervidobacterium nodosum is a thermophilic, Gram-negative, motile, non-sporulating, glycolytic, obligately anaerobic rod that exists singly, in pairs or in chains. Fervidobacterium nodosum was isolated from a hot spring in New Zealand. Its optimal growth temperature is 65 to 70 degrees Celsius. The cellular morphology of this organism, a member of the Thermotogales, is characterized by a terminal spherical extension of the cell envelope.
