Query: NC_012997:2254000 Teredinibacter turnerae T7901, complete genome Lineage: Teredinibacter turnerae; Teredinibacter; ; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Teredinibacter turnerae was isolated from the gills of the wood-boring mollusc, Lyrodus pedicellatus. Dinitrogen-fixing, cellulolytic, endosymbiont. This organism is a rare example of a marine invertebrate symbiont that has been grown in pure culture. They have the unique ability to be able to both utilize cellulose as a sole carbon source and also to fix nitrogen.

General Information: This strain is a marine gamma-proteobacterium that was isolated from decaying Spartina alterniflora, a salt marsh cord grass, in the Chesapeake Bay, USA. Saccharophagus degradans 2-40 has been used to produce ethanol from plant material and may be useful for the production bioethanol. Bacterium able to degrade complex carbohydrates. Saccharophagus degradans is capable of degrading insoluble complex carbohydrates through the collective action of enzyme complexes found on its cell surfaces, utilizing the degradation products as a carbon source. This organism may be useful in bioremediation. The degradative enzymes this organism produces are typically exoenzymes that are collected and organized into large surface complexes termed cellulosomes.
