General Information: This wild-type strain (C2A; DSM2834) is the type strain of this species and was isolated from marine sediment. Anaerobic methane-producing archeon. This organism is a strictly anaerobic, nonmotile, methane-producing Archaea responsible for virtually all biogenic methane production, a process of critical importance as a key step in the global carbon cycle. This process results in the production of significant amounts of greenhouse gas. This organism is also important in production of alternative fuels and plays a role in both agricultural and waste treatment industry. Optimal growth occurs at pH 6.5-7.0.
