Query: NC_020389:2439067 Methanosarcina mazei Tuc01, complete genome Lineage: Methanosarcina mazei; Methanosarcina; Methanosarcinaceae; Methanosarcinales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: This organism is a strictly anaerobic, non-motile, methane-producing archaeon. This organism can also aggregate forming large irregular shaped clumps of cells. Occasionally these aggregates can grow to 1000 microns or more in diameter. Growth occurs at pH 5.5-8.0, with optimum growth at pH 6.8-7.2. Growth occurs at pH 5.5-8.0, with optimum growth at pH 6.8-7.2. Can be found in decaying leaf litter, garden soil, sewage treatment sludge digestors, black mud, feces of herbivores and other urban waste and sewage products.

General Information: Environment: Deep sea, Fresh water, Hydrothermal vent; Isolation: Walls of an active deep-sea hydrothermal; Temp: Thermophile; Temp: 60 - 80C; Country: Pacific Ocean. This is a thermophilic, anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic bacterium isolated from the walls of an active deep-sea hydrothermal vent chimney on the East Pacific Rise. This organism grows on mineral salts in the presence of carbon dioxide and hydrogen, reducing nitrate or sulfur to ammonium or hydrogen sulfide, respectively.
