Query: NC_011837:238160 Clostridium kluyveri NBRC 12016, complete genome Lineage: Clostridium kluyveri; Clostridium; Clostridiaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Involved in production of caproic acid in co-culture with a methanogen. Clostridium kluyveri was enriched from mud in a co-culture with Methanobacterium omelianskii. When grown on ethanol C. kluyveri produce caproic acid in addition to acetic acid. This organism is able to grow anaerobically on ethanol and acetate as sole energy sources.

General Information: Temp: Hyperthermophile; Temp: 55 - 65C. The organism is able to utilizing a wide range of substrates, including pentose (C5) and hexose (C6) in agricultural waste and is tolerant to high ethanol concentrations. These properties make it an attractive candidate for bioethanol production.
