Query: NC_020389:714178 Methanosarcina mazei Tuc01, complete genome Lineage: Methanosarcina mazei; Methanosarcina; Methanosarcinaceae; Methanosarcinales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: This organism is a strictly anaerobic, non-motile, methane-producing archaeon. This organism can also aggregate forming large irregular shaped clumps of cells. Occasionally these aggregates can grow to 1000 microns or more in diameter. Growth occurs at pH 5.5-8.0, with optimum growth at pH 6.8-7.2. Growth occurs at pH 5.5-8.0, with optimum growth at pH 6.8-7.2. Can be found in decaying leaf litter, garden soil, sewage treatment sludge digestors, black mud, feces of herbivores and other urban waste and sewage products.

General Information: This wild-type strain (C2A; DSM2834) is the type strain of this species and was isolated from marine sediment. Anaerobic methane-producing archeon. This organism is a strictly anaerobic, nonmotile, methane-producing Archaea responsible for virtually all biogenic methane production, a process of critical importance as a key step in the global carbon cycle. This process results in the production of significant amounts of greenhouse gas. This organism is also important in production of alternative fuels and plays a role in both agricultural and waste treatment industry. Optimal growth occurs at pH 6.5-7.0.
