Query: NC_010655:1808657 Akkermansia muciniphila ATCC BAA-835, complete genome Lineage: Akkermansia muciniphila; Akkermansia; Verrucomicrobiaceae; Verrucomicrobiales; Verrucomicrobia; Bacteria General Information: This organism was isolated from human feces and is able to degrade mucin. Loss of this protective barrier may expose the gastrointestinal epithelial cells to pathogenic microorganisms or to the highly acidic gut environment. Akkermansia muciniphila is a member of the Verrucomicrobia which are also common in soil and water.

General Information: Common environmental anaerobe. The genus Pelobacter encompasses a unique group of fermentative microorganisms in the delta-proteobacteria. This species is ubiquitous in both marine and fresh water, and in anaerobic sedmiments. It is able to convert the unsaturated hydrocarbon acetylene to to acetate and ethanol via acetylaldehyde as an intermediate. These microorganisms may survive in some sediments as an Fe(III) or elemental sulfur reducer as well as growing fermentatively as an ethanol-oxidizing acetogen.
