First genome sequence of a syntrophic acetate-oxidizing bacterium, Tepidanaerobacter acetatoxydans strain re1

Manzoor, Shahid; Bongcam-Rudloff, Erik; Schnürer, Anna; Müller, Bettina


Syntrophic acetate-oxidizing bacteria (SAOB) have been identified as key organisms for efficient biogas production from protein-rich materials. Tepidanaerobacter acetatoxydans is the first reported SAOB for which the genome has been sequenced. Genome analysis will aid us in understanding the mechanisms regulating syntrophy, particularly energy-conserving and electron transfer mechanisms.
