Query: NC_006677:1596560 Gluconobacter oxydans 621H, complete genome

Lineage: Gluconobacter oxydans; Gluconobacter; Acetobacteraceae; Rhodospirillales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Industrially useful bacterium. Gluconobacter oxydans is a member of the Acetobacteraceae family within the alpha proteobacteria and can be isolated from flowers, fruits, and fermented beverages. This organism uses membrane-associated dehydrogenases to incompletely oxidize a wide variety of carbohydrates and alcohols. Oxidation occurs in the periplasm with the products being released into the medium via outer membrane porins and the electrons entering the electron transport chain. Able to oxidize large amounts of substrates, making it useful for industrial purposes. Among other applications, it has been used to produce 2-ketogluconic for iso-ascorbic acid production, 5-ketogluconic acid from glucose for tartaric acid production, and L-sorbose from sorbitol for vitamin C synthesis.

Subject: NC_002570:126500 Bacillus halodurans C-125, complete genome

Lineage: Bacillus halodurans; Bacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

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.
