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
