Query: NC_014833:1539678 Ruminococcus albus 7 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Ruminococcus albus; Ruminococcus; Ruminococcaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Environment: Host; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 40C. The bacterium requires phenylacetic and phenylpropionic acids for maximal growth. The organism produces cellulosomes at the cell surface that are multimeric protein complexes that contain scaffolding proteins and degradative enzymes. Understanding the metabolism of plant polysaccharides may enable scientists to improve the productivity of ruminant organisms such as cattle

General Information: This strain was isolated from a shallow marine solfataric (volcanic area that gives off sulfuric gases) region at Vulcano Island, Italy. This organism is a strictly anaerobic, hyperthermophilic archaeon. Growth occurs at temperatures between 67 and 103 degrees C, with optimal growth at 100 degrees C and a pH of 7.0. This organism is highly motile due to a bundle of flagella.
