Query: NC_014833:1539678 Ruminococcus albus 7 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Ruminococcus albus; Ruminococcus; Ruminococcaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Environment: Host; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 40C. The bacterium requires phenylacetic and phenylpropionic acids for maximal growth. The organism produces cellulosomes at the cell surface that are multimeric protein complexes that contain scaffolding proteins and degradative enzymes. Understanding the metabolism of plant polysaccharides may enable scientists to improve the productivity of ruminant organisms such as cattle

General Information: Strain C-125 (JCM9153) was isolated in 1977 and is the most well studied alkaliphilic Bacillus organism. Alkaliphilic bacterium. This organism is similar to Bacillus subtilis but is alkaliphilic, grows poorly at neutral pH, and very well at pH >9.5. This bacterium produces a peptidoglycan that contains teichuronic peptides consisting of polyglutamic and polyglucuronic acids that counteract the halophilic environment.
