Query: NC_014033:1691822 Prevotella ruminicola 23 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Prevotella ruminicola; Prevotella; Prevotellaceae; Bacteroidales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria General Information: These organisms are common rumen inhabitants. It is one of the most commonly isolated species from rumen contents and possesses the capacity to degrade plant cell wall polysaccharides, proteins, and peptides, contributing to the utilization of noncellulosic polysaccharides, such as starch and xylan.

General Information: Environment: Host; Isolation: Pig faeces; Temp: Mesophile. This group of microbes constitute the most abundant members of the intestinal microflora of mammals. Typically they are symbionts, but they can become opportunistic pathogens in the peritoneal (intra-abdominal) cavity. This organism produces many extracellular enzymes which assist in the breakdown of complex plant polysaccharides such as cellulose and hemicellulose and host-derived polysaccharides such as mucopolysaccharides. This species has been isolated from abscesses in pigs.
