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: Eubacterium eligens ATCC 27750 is part of the normal human gut flora. This genus has been isolated as normal flora from feces, rumen, and periodontal tissue. Eubacterium spp. are thought to play a beneficial role in maintaining the normal ecology of the large intestine, in part by producing chemicals like butyric acid which act to inhibit the growth of other bacteria. These organisms are occasionally isolated from wounds and abscesses and may be an opportunistic pathogen. This genus has also been isolated from sewage and soil.
