Query: NC_009975:1034144 Methanococcus maripaludis C6, complete genome Lineage: Methanococcus maripaludis; Methanococcus; Methanococcaceae; Methanococcales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: This strain was isolated from intertidal sediments. Methanococcus maripaludis is a rapid growing hydrogenotrophic methanoarchaeon common in salt marshes, marine and estuarine environments in the Southeastern U.S.A. Methanococcus maripaludis is an obligately anaerobic, mesophilic, methane-producing archaeon. Growth on hydrogen and carbon dioxide results in the production of methane as a waste product. M. maripaludis stands out among methanogenic archaea as an ideal model species because of fast reproducible growth and effective genetic tools.

General Information: Methanosarcina mazei Go1 (DSM 3647) was isolated from an anaerobic sewage digester in Germany. Anaerobic methane-producing archeon. 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.
