Query: NC_014328:1596016 Clostridium ljungdahlii ATCC 49587 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Clostridium ljungdahlii; Clostridium; Clostridiaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: This strain was isolated from chicken yard waste and is studied for its ability to produce ethanol. This acetogenic species has the ability to convert carbon monoxide into ethanol. The yield of this process has been increased substantially in the laboratory by using a dual-fermentation system. A methanogenic conversion step has also been designed for utilizing some of the waste products generated during the synthetic process.

General Information: This strain is an obligate intracellular endosymbiont of the cilliate Euplotes aediculatus. This group of organisms is common in freshwater, comprising up to 60% of the bacteria in freshwater habitats. Polynucleobacter species are also known to be endosymbionts of ciliates. These strains live within the cytoplasm and are essential for their host organisms.
