Historically, Micrococcus luteus was one of the first organisms used to study natural transformation, one of the main routes of horizontal gene transfer among prokaryotes. However, little is known about the molecular basis of competence development in M. luteus or any other representative of the phylum of high-GC Gram-positive bacteria (Actinobacteria), while this means of genetic exchange has been studied in great detail in Gram-negative and low-GC Gram-positive bacteria (Firmicutes). In order ...

Arabinofuranosidases are important accessory enzymes involved in the degradation of arabinose-containing poly- and oligosaccharides. Two arabinofuranosidases from the recently described novel anaerobic cellulolytic bacterium Acetivibrio mesophilus, designated AmAraf51 and AmAraf43, were heterologously expressed in Escherichia coli and biochemically characterized. AmAraf51 not only removed arabinose moieties at O-3, O-2 and terminal O-5 positions of arabinose-containing oligosaccharides, but also...

ABSTRACT Clostridium beijerinckii strain mbf-VZ-132 was isolated from soil in Freising-Weihenstephan (Bavaria, Germany). The 16S rRNA gene sequence showed a 99.9% sequence identity to that of Clostridium diolis DSM 15410, which was recently reclassified as C. beijerinckii. In this study, we present the draft genome sequence of C. beijerinckii mbf-VZ-132 based on PacBio sequencing.

Mobilitalea sibirica strain P3M-3T is a strictly anaerobic, halotolerant, organotrophic bacterium of the family Lachnospiraceae that can utilize various plant-derived polysaccharides as its carbon source. The strain was originally isolated from a microbial mat in western Siberia (Russia). In this study, we present the draft genome sequence of M. sibirica P3M-3T based on Illumina paired-end sequencing.

Agro-industrial residues are low-cost carbon sources (C-sources) for microbial growth and production of value-added bioproducts. Among the agro-industrial residues available, those rich in pectin are generated in high amounts worldwide from the sugar industry or the industrial processing of fruits and vegetables. Sugar beet pulp (SBP) hydrolysates contain predominantly the neutral sugars d-glucose, l-arabinose and d-galactose, and the acidic sugar d-galacturonic acid. Acetic acid is also present...

Butanol is a platform chemical that is utilized in a wide range of industrial products and is considered a suitable replacement or additive to liquid fuels. So far, it is mainly produced through petrochemical routes. Alternative production routes, for example through biorefinery, are under investigation but are currently not at a market competitive level. Possible alternatives, such as acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation by solventogenic clostridia are not market-ready to this day either,...

Genomic studies revealed the glycoside hydrolases of family 48 (GH48) as a powerful marker for the identification of truly cellulolytic bacteria. Here we report an improved method for detecting cellulolytic bacteria in lab-scale biogas fermenters by using GH48 genes as a molecular marker in DNA and RNA samples. We developed a mixture of primers for the specific amplification of a GH48 gene region in a broad range of bacteria. Additionally, we built a manually curated reference database containin...

Bacterial hydrolysis of polysaccharides is an important step for the production of sustainable energy, for example during the conversion of plant biomass to methane-rich biogas. Previously, Hungateiclostridium thermocellum was identified as cellulolytic key player in thermophilic biogas microbiomes with a great frequency as an accompanying organism. The aim of this study was to physiologically characterize a recently isolated co-culture of H. thermocellum and the saccharolytic bacterium Defluvii...

Background: The natural production of olefins (unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbons) by certain bacterial genera represents an alternative and sustainable source of biofuels and lubricant components. The biochemical steps of olefin biosynthesis via the ole pathway encoded by oleABCD have been unraveled recently, and the occurrence of olefins has been reported for several Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. However, the distribution and diversity of olefins among the Gram-positive bacteria ha...

We have used a mass spectrometry-based proteomic approach to compile an atlas of the thermal stability of 48,000 proteins across 13 species ranging from archaea to humans and covering melting temperatures of 30–90 °C. Protein sequence, composition and size affect thermal stability in prokaryotes and eukaryotic proteins show a nonlinear relationship between the degree of disordered protein structure and thermal stability. The data indicate that evolutionary conservation of protein complexes is re...
