Query: NC_012808:1920500 Methylobacterium extorquens AM1, complete genome

Lineage: Methylobacterium extorquens; Methylobacterium; Methylobacteriaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: First isolated in 1960 in Oxford, England, as an airborne contaminant growing on methylamine. This strain can grow on methylamine or methanol, but not methane. This organism is capable of growth on one-carbon compounds such as methanol. Methanol is oxidized to formaldehyde which is then used metabolically to generate either energy or biomass. These bacteria are commonly found in the environment, especially associated with plants which produce methanol when metabolizing pectin during cell wall synthesis. At least 25 genes are required for this complex process of converting methanol to formaldehyde and this specialized metabolic pathway is of great interest.

Subject: NC_014215:1190447 Propionibacterium freudenreichii subsp. shermanii CIRM-BIA1,

Lineage: Propionibacterium freudenreichii; Propionibacterium; Propionibacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Propionibacterium freudenreichii is a member of the "dairy propionibacteria", commonly isolated from cheese and other dairy products. Propionibacterium freudenreichii subsp. shermanii, formerly Propionibacterium shermanii, is important for the development of flavor and the characteristic holes in Swiss cheese. In addition, Propionibacterium freudenreichii subsp. shermanii has been used as a probiotic for humans and animals and may have a role in preventing of colon cancer.
