Query: NC_014387:993013 Butyrivibrio proteoclasticus B316 chromosome 1, complete genome Lineage: Butyrivibrio proteoclasticus; Butyrivibrio; Lachnospiraceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Butyrivibrio proteoclasticus, formerly Clostridium proteoclasticum, was isolated from rumen contents of a cow. This organism is highly proteolytic and therefore probably involved in the degradation of proteins in the rumen.

General Information: This organism was originally isolated from a hot spring in Tengcong, China, and is the type strain for the species. Genomic analysis indicates it is similar to Bacillus halodurans and that it has one of the most biased leading strand distribution of genes. Although the organism has not been observed to be motile or to sporulate, it does contain genes for both functions. The bacterium produces acetate and ethanol from glucose and cannot degrade xylan and cellulose.
