Rout, Simon P., Salah, Zohier B., Charles, Christopher J. and Humphreys, Paul (2017) Whole genome sequence of the anaerobic isosaccharinic acid degrading isolate, Macellibacteroides fermentans strain HH-ZS. Genome Biology and Evolution, 9 (8). pp. 2140-2144. ISSN 1759-6653

The ability of micro-organisms to degrade isosaccharinic acids (ISAs) whilst tolerating hyperalkaline conditions is pivotal to our understanding of the biogeochemistry associated within these environs, but also in scenarios pertaining to the cementitious disposal of radioactive wastes. An alkalitolerant, ISA degrading micro-organism was isolated from the hyperalkaline soils resulting from lime depositions. Here we report the first whole genome sequence, ISA degradation profile and carbohydrate preoteome of a Macellibacteroides fermentans strain HH-ZS, 4.08Mb in size, coding 3,241 proteins, 64 tRNA and one rRNA.
