Query: NC_013665:1922000 Methanocella paludicola SANAE, complete genome Lineage: Methanocella paludicola; Methanocella; Methanocellaceae; Methanocellales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: This strain was isolated in Japan from rice paddy samples. Strain SANAE belongs to the Rice Cluster I (RC-I), a 16S rRNA and mcrA gene sequences-defined euryarchaeal lineage within Methanosarcinales and Methanomicrobiales. The RC-I group plays a key role in releasing methane from rice fields, which accounts for 10 to 25% of the global methane emissions.

General Information: This species was isolated from the kidney of the earthworm Eisenia foetida. Evidence based on curing experiments, Acidovorax-specific probes, and 16S phylogeny, indicate that earthworm egg capsules contain high numbers of the bacterial endosymbiont. Juvenile earthworms are colonized during embryonic development within the egg capsule, and failing this are not likely to acquire the symbiont by association with colonized adults or their bedding.
