Query: NC_012785:1960500 Kosmotoga olearia TBF 19.5.1, complete genome Lineage: Kosmotoga olearia; Kosmotoga; Thermotogaceae; Thermotogales; Thermotogae; Bacteria General Information: Gram-negative bacterium Kosmotoga olearia TBF 19.5.1 was isolated from an oil deposit. Broad temperature growth range. This organism is a member of the Thermotogales and has the characteristic morphology of one or more cells contained in a sheath-like envelope which extends beyond the cell wall. Preliminary sequencing of Thermotogales genomes has identified extensive horizontal gene transfer between these organisms and the Archaea.

General Information: This strain is a marine gamma-proteobacterium that was isolated from decaying Spartina alterniflora, a salt marsh cord grass, in the Chesapeake Bay, USA. Saccharophagus degradans 2-40 has been used to produce ethanol from plant material and may be useful for the production bioethanol. Bacterium able to degrade complex carbohydrates. Saccharophagus degradans is capable of degrading insoluble complex carbohydrates through the collective action of enzyme complexes found on its cell surfaces, utilizing the degradation products as a carbon source. This organism may be useful in bioremediation. The degradative enzymes this organism produces are typically exoenzymes that are collected and organized into large surface complexes termed cellulosomes.
