The binding of MC1 protein, the major chromosomal protein of the archaebacterium Methanosarcina sp. CHTI 55, to the region preceding the strongly expressed genes encoding methyl coenzyme reductase in a closely related micro-organism has been investigated. By gel retardation and DNAase I footprinting assays, we identified a preferential binding sequence in an open reading frame of unknown function. The large area of DNA protected against DNAase I is interrupted by a strong cleavage enhancement site on each strand. By circular permutation assays, we showed that the DNA bends upon MC1 binding. Furthermore we observed that the presence of a sequence outside the binding site can induce an unusual electrophoretic behaviour in some complexes. ...
The 16S ribosomal RNAs from 10 species of methanogenic bacteria have been characterized in terms of the oligonucleotides produced by T1 RNase digestion. Comparative analysis of these data reveals the methanogens to constitute a distinct phylogenetic group containing two major divisions. These organisms appear to be only distantly related to typical bacteria.. ...

1EO1: NMR Structure Determination and Structure-Based Functional Characterization of Conserved Hypothetical Protein MTH1175 from Methanobacterium Thermoautotrophicum
A recently described reverse gyrase from the hyperthermophilic methanogen Methanopyrus kandleri is the only known example of a heterodimeric type I topoisomerase. The enzyme is made up of a 42-kDa subunit which covalently interacts with DNA (RgyA) and a 138-kDa subunit which binds ATP (RgyB). We have now cloned and sequenced the genes for both subunits of this enzyme. Surprisingly, the universally conserved type I topoisomerase domain [Lima, C. D., Wang, J. C. & Mondragon, A.

Radial microscale distributions of oxygen and pH were studied in ca 1.5 mm large laboratory-made aggregates composed of phytoplankton detritus and fecal pellets. Microsensor measurements were done at spatial increments down to 0.05 mm in a vertical flow system in which the individual aggregates stabilized their position in the water phase according to the upward flow velocity. The aggregates were surrounded by a diffusive boundary layer with steep gradients of oxygen and pH. They were highly heterotrophic communities both under natural light conditions and in darkness. pH was lowered from 8.2 in the surrounding water to 7.4 in the center of an anoxic aggregate. Sulfide was not detectable by use of sulfide microelectrodes in anoxic aggregates, and methanogenic bacteria could not be detected after PCR (polymerase chain reaction) amplification using archaebacterial-specific primers. The oxygen respiration rate decreased exponentially over time with a T1/2 of 2.3 d. Theoretical calculations of the ...

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Archaea human intestine prokaryote (Methanobrevibacter smithii). Methanobrevibacter smithii is the main human gut (intestine) archeon (from the Archaea domain) that is a methanotroph (methanogen). It recycles the hydrogen in methane and allows for an increase in energy extraction for nutrients. It plays a role in the digestion of polysaccharides (complex sugars) by consuming the end products of bacterial fermentation. The human gut flora consists of three main groups of hydrogen consuming microbes: methanogens; a polyphyletic group of acetogenic bacteria; and sulphate reducing bacteria. Magnification: x5,335 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres. - Stock Image C032/1307
Methanosarcina barkeri is the most fundamental species of the genus Methanosarcina, and their properties apply generally to the genus Methanosarcina. Methanosarcina barkeri can produce methane anaerobically through different metabolic pathways. M. barkeri can subsume a variety of molecules for ATP production, including methanol, acetate, methylamines, and different forms of hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Although it is a slow developer and is sensitive to change in environmental conditions, M. barkeri is able to grow in a variety of different substrates, adding to its appeal for genetic analysis. Additionally, M. barkeri is the first organism in which the amino acid pyrrolysine was found. Furthermore, two strains of M. barkeri, M. b. Fusaro and M. b. MS have been identified to possess an F-type ATPase (unusual for archaea, but common for bacteria, mitochondria and chloroplasts) along with an A-type ATPase. The fusaro strain of M. barkeri was found in mud samples taken from Lake Lago del Fusaro, a ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Colonization of rice roots with methanogenic archaea controls photosynthesis-derived methane emission. AU - Pump, Judith. AU - Pratscher, Jennifer. AU - Conrad, Ralf. PY - 2015/7. Y1 - 2015/7. N2 - The methane emitted from rice fields originates to a large part (up to 60%) from plant photosynthesis and is formed on the rice roots by methanogenic archaea. To investigate to which extent root colonization controls methane (CH4) emission, we pulse-labeled rice microcosms with 13CO2 to determine the rates of 13CH4 emission exclusively derived from photosynthates. We also measured emission of total CH4 (12+13CH4), which was largely produced in the soil. The total abundances of archaea and methanogens on the roots and in the soil were analysed by quantitative polymerase chain reaction of the archaeal 16S rRNA gene and the mcrA gene coding for a subunit of the methyl coenzyme M reductase respectively. The composition of archaeal and methanogenic communities was determined with terminal ...

Natural gas (methane) is emerging as a viable power source for many industrial, commercial, and domestic applications. Bio-methane provides a promising replacement for mined natural gas. Methanogenic bacteria produce this bio-methane. These anaerobic bacteria pertain to the Domain Archaea, and are found in extreme environments where few other bacteria survive. They are employed by Up-Flow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactors in the digestion of wastes to a marketable product (methane). The genome of methanogenic bacteria can be amplified using polymerase chain reaction (PCR), a synthetic DNA replication system. This system employs specific sequences of DNA called primers. The primers employed in this study focused on 16S rRNA amplification providing a fingerprint of the organisms identity. Previous design of these primers was unsuccessful and resulted in non-specific binding.
Prediction of Methanobacterium using suffix tree is a server designed to know the querysequence related to Methanococus thermophilus and also to execute the maximum length of the stringrelated to Methanococcus. MEGA 4.0 is used to know the conserved sites aligned from 70 sequencesrelated to 16S rRNA nucleotide sequence (Methanococcus thermophilus) from NCBI database. There are12 strings aligned in all sequences that are highly conserved in the aligned sequences. Ukkonens algorithmis used to find the suffix tree for the given patterns (conserved sites). If the query sequence is submitted tothe PMST (Prediction of Methanobacterium using Suffix Tree), the results will give the maximum sequencelength and the suffix tree based on Ukkonens algorithm.
Sulfidogenic biochemical reactors for metal removal that use complex organic carbon have been shown to be effective in laboratory studies, but their performance in the field is highly variable. Successful operation depends on the types of microorganisms supported by the organic matrix, and factors affecting the community composition are unknown. A molecular survey of a field-based biochemical reactor that had been removing zinc and arsenic for over six years revealed that the microbial community was dominated by methanogens related to Methanocorpusculum sp. and Methanosarcina sp., which co-occurred with Bacteroidetes environmental groups, such as Vadin HA17, in places where the organic matter was more degraded. The metabolic potential for organic matter decomposition by Ruminococcaceae was prevalent in samples with more pyrolysable carbon. Rhodobium- and Hyphomicrobium-related genera within the Rhizobiales Order that have the metabolic potential for dark hydrogen fermentation and methylotrophy, and
Methane emissions from pigs account for 10% of total methane production from livestock in China. Methane emissions not only contribute to global warming, as it has 25 times the global warming potential (GWP) of CO2, but also represent approximately 0.1~3.3% of digestive energy loss. Methanogens also play an important role in maintaining the balance of the gut microbiome. The large intestines are the main habitat for the microbiome in pigs. Thus, to better understand the mechanism of methane production and mitigation, generic-specific and physio-ecological characteristics (including redox potential (Eh), pH and volatile fatty acids (VFAs)) and methanogens in the large intestine of pig were studied in this paper. Thirty DLY finishing pigs with the same diet and feeding conditions were selected for this experiment. A total of 219 clones were examined using the methyl coenzyme reductase subunit A gene (mcrA) and assigned to 43 operational taxonomic units (OTUs) based on a 97% species-level identity
Here are my 5 cents worth of opinion concerning the Postinggs from L.A. Maron ,CnsIqJ.MDz at gpu.utcc.utoronto.ca, lamoran at gpu.utcc.utoronto.ca (L.A. Moran): There are many characters (not only 16S rRNAs) which separate Archae- and Eubacteria (see Zillig et al., 1992, for a listing). With many molecular markers the Archaebacteria appear closer to the Eukaryotes (e.g.: ATPases, elongation factors, RNA polymerases). Not all of these molecular markers show the Archaebacteria as a monophyletic group, in some analyses they appear paraphyletic; however, the branch that separates the two archaebacterial groups is very short (as is the branch that connects the 16S rRNA of the Archaebacteria to the other 16SrRNAs). Based only on nucleotide data it will be difficult to discriminate between the para and monophyletic origin of the archaebacteria. Rivera and Lake report a higher order character (a deletion/insertion) that unites only some of the archaebacteria with the eukaryotes. I think that one of the ...

The crystal structure of the glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) from the archaeon Methanothermus fervidus has been solved in the holo form at 2.1 a resolution by molecular replacement. Unlike bacterial and eukaryotic homologous enzymes which are strictly NAD(+)-dependent, GAPDH from this organism exhibits a dual-cofactor specificity, with a marked preference for NADP(+) over NAD(+). The present structure is the first archaeal GAPDH crystallized with NADP(+). GAPDH from M. fervidus adopts a homotetrameric quaternary structure which is topologically similar to that observed for its bacterial and eukaryotic counterparts. Within the cofactor-binding site, the positively charged side-chain of Lys33 decisively contributes to NADP(+) recognition through a tight electrostatic interaction with the adenosine 2-phosphate group. Like other GAPDHs, GAPDH from archaeal sources binds the nicotinamide moiety of NADP(+) in a syn conformation with respect to the adjacent ribose and so belongs to ...

Researchers have claimed that bovines also possess the ability to boost the production of methane gas in soil, especially in winters.
Methanogenic metabolism of organic matter is a key process in both natural and engineered systems. Methanogenic hydrocarbon degradation is an important biogeochemical process in the deep subsurface, and subsurface hydrocarbon contamination is frequently remediated by methanogenic processes. Despite the importance of methanogenic processes in hydrocarbon-impacted systems, we currently have an incomplete understanding of the hydrocarbon activation and degradation pathways used by the syntrophic bacteria, the roles of the non-hydrocarbon degrading syntrophs, which are often present in high abundance, and the ways in which syntrophic bacteria and methanogenic archaea establish and maintain relationships that allow them to coordinate their metabolism. By studying methanogenic hydrocarbon degrading enrichment cultures, we remove many complicating features of natural systems and can gain a basic understanding of the primary factors governing hydrocarbon metabolism under methanogenic conditions. In this ...
The global microbial CH4 production is estimated to reach one billion tons annually. Methanogenic archaea produce CH4 in wetlands, rice fields, ruminant and termite digestive systems and have a decisive impact on the planets atmospheric carbon cycle [42]. At the same time, the industrial scale anaerobic digestion of biomass to CH4 plays a vital role in the future global energy mix. All methanogenic archaea capable of CO2 reduction contain the cofactor F420 as an integral part of the methanogenic pathway. In this study, F420 autofluorescence was tested as a universal marker for methanogenic archaea. Genes encoding for F420 biosynthesis enzymes were identified in 653 bacterial and 173 archaeal species [43]. Non-methanogenic but F420 containing microorganisms have reported F420 concentrations of about one fortieth of the concentrations in hydrogenotrophic methanogenic archaea [19], which is below detection limit of the developed protocol. For the methanogenic archaea, however, the F420 cofactor ...
Acetate is the major source of biological methane in both freshwater and marine environments (1, 2). Only two genera (Methanosarcina and Methanosaeta) of acetate-utilizing methane-producing microbes are known, of which Methanosarcina species have been researched to a greater extent. Most investigations have focused on Methanosarcina barkeri and Methanosarcina mazei, for which electron transport in the pathway of acetate conversion to methane is dependent on the production and consumption of H2, although the majority of Methanosarcina species are unable to metabolize H2 (3). On the other hand, all Methanosarcina species investigated transfer the methyl group of acetate to methane similarly, beginning with the CO dehydrogenase/acetyl coenzyme A (CoA) complex (Cdh), which cleaves activated acetate into methyl and carbonyl groups (4). The Cdh transfers the methyl group to tetrahydrosarcinapterin (THSPT), followed by transfer from CH3-THSPT to coenzyme M (HS-CoM), a reaction catalyzed by a membrane ...
Ultrastructural examinations were performed on biofilms from eight anaerobic fixed-bed reactors filled with various packing materials and operated on fresh swine waste. By using light, UV, scanning, and transmission electron microscopy, the distribution of a diverse microbial population composed of bacteria and a few yeasts was determined. This is the first time that the ultrastructure of in situ anaerobic digestor biofilms has been reported. A large number of methanogenic bacteria were identified by their fluorescence under 420 nm of radiation. Of these, two morphologically distinct types were most prevalent in the films. Methanothrix spp. was present in high numbers at the film surface, whereas Methanosarcina spp. were commonly embedded in the lower regions of the of the film. Inhabitants of the film were surrounded by an exopolysaccharide matrix that was very dense toward the base. An extensive network of channels was observed throughout the matrix that may facilitate gas and nutrient ...
All the other methanogens can utilize no more than two methanogenic substrates and possess a single pathway for methanogenesis. Methanosarcina, on the other hand, has all three known pathways for methanogenesis and can utilize no less than nine methanogenic substrates. M. barkeri and M. mazei are autotrophic, but M. acetivorans is not. It also has a number of distinct morphological forms including single cells with and without a cell envelope, as well as multicellular packets and lamina. The packets and lamina showed internal morphological diversity, indicating possible cell differentiation. The fact that cells in the lamina secrete different extracellular material gives light to possible cell specialization as well. They are coccoid and have cell walls of protein, often having an external wall of a heteropolysaccharide. Most Methanosarcina spp. are surrounded by a polymeric network of methanochondroitin that is external to an S-layer. The term matrix has been proposed to describe this ...
The flammable gas methane is the product of the energy-generating metabolism of the methanogenic Archaea. Most of the methanogenesis on earth occurs in anaerobic habitats where intermediates in the breakdown of organic matter are converted to methane. You can observe the accumulation of methane in sediments in the Volta experiment. Some methanogenesis on earth today (and perhaps most of it on the ancient earth) occurs in geothermal habitats such as hydrothermal vents. In the diagram of methanogenesis below, the pathway with hydrogen and carbon dioxide or with formate is shown. In hydrogenotrophic methanogens, no electron transport chain is present. Energy is conserved by sodium ion export to generate a chemiosmotic membrane potential. In addition, energy coupling occurs by electron bifurcation, making the pathway cyclical. In addition to electron equivalents needed for methanogenesis, an anaplerotic supply electrons is necessary ...

Detailed experimental data are provided on syntrophic acetate degradation by thermophilic associations, on the isolation of pure cultures from these associations, their physiological characteristics, and reconstruction of microbial interactions during acetate degradation to methane. The microbial community of the high-temperature Dagang oilfield was investigated by culture-based, radioisotope, and 16S rRNA gene techniques. Cultivable microorganisms (aerobic oil-oxidizing, anaerobic fermentative, sulfate-reducing, and methanogenic) were found in formation water. Methanogenic enrichments were obtained in media both with Н2+CO2 and acetate. The process of methane production in formation waters was also registered by radioisotope methods with ...
Methanobacterium palustre is a mesophilic organism, best suited for temperatures between 33 degrees and 37 degrees Celsius. The minimum and maximum growth temperatures are between 20 degrees and 45 degrees, respectively. Optimal pH for growth is approximately 7 and a pH value as low as 6 is known to be tolerable. The microbe is sensitive to salinity. Growth is impeded at 18 g/L NaCl and growth completely halts at 30 g/L NaCl. (Zellner, G., et al.) When focusing on Methanobacterium palustres metabolism, it is an autrophic microorganism that undergoes methanogenesis. In order to utilize this process, the conditions must be anoxic. This means that M. palustre is anaerobic and found at low depths within its peat bog environment. The microorganisms metabolism is dictated via 2 processes: the Carbon Cycle and Alcohol Dehydrogenase enzyme. When following the Carbon Cycle pathway, carbon dioxide oxidizes hydrogen gas to produce methane and water. In this case, hydrogen gas is the electron donor and ...
The research objectives of the project are to develop genetic and molecular techniques that will permit the detection, isolation, and cloning of genes that are regulated during acetate catabolism. These studies should provide a firm basis for understanding the regulation of acetate utilization in the methanogen, Methanosarcina acitivorans. We have concentrated on three areas of study in the first year of the contract. They are; 1)development of cell plating methods for the methanosarcina, 2) screening and isolation of plasmids from the acetogenic methanogens, and 3) construction of gene libraries for M. acetivorans. It is anticipated that techniques developed in these studies will facilitate genetic study of other methanogenic organisms.

Although some progress has been made in the development of genetic technology for Bacillus stearothermophilus, strains of the genus Thermus, and Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum, the lack of efficient and reliable genetic exchange systems, a repertoire of mutants, or plasmids that express useful genetic markers has hampered the exploitation of these organisms for basic and applied research. Recent progress in the development of genetic techniques for B. stearothermophilus NUB36 makes it possible to elucidate the molecular and genetic mechanisms of thermophily in this organism. The genetic characterization of the B. stearothermophilus NUB36 genome is the first step in attaining this goal. The map was constructed using the linkages reported by Vallier and Welker. The genetic map of B. stearothermophilus NUB36 may be similar to the B. subtilis 168 map; however, the identity of the genes in B. stearothermophilus with the putative analogous genes of B. subtilis must be rigorously established by

Acetogenesis the carbonic acids are converted to acetate, H{}2 and CO{}2. Just these substances can be changed directly into methane by methanogenic bacteria. This process is also called anaerobic oxidation, because electrons in the form of H{}2 are released. The releasing of butyric ...
Amino acids can be classified according to various structural and functional properties. The classification into proteinogenic and non-proteinogenic amino acids is of essential importance in the life sciences. The former are structurally characterized by having a C-α-atom which is bound to a carboxy group, an amino group and an organic side chain R. In total, 22 different proteinogenic amino acids are known, including selenocysteine and pyrrolysine. While selenocysteine (Sec) occurs in different eukaryotic enzymes, for example in glutathione peroxidase, pyrrolysine (N6-[(2R,3R)-3-methyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyrrol-2-yl-carbonyl]-L-lysine) was only found in methanogenic bacteria as yet. 21 of the 22 proteinogenic amino acids are chiral with the exception of glycine where the side chain is substituted by an H atom. Accordingly, members of the former group can exist in two enantiomeric forms referred to as L- and D-isomers. The D-configuration, for example, is found in bacterial cell walls while in ...
By Kimm Fesenmaier, California Institute of Technology Methane is a simple molecule consisting of just one carbon atom bound to four hydrogen atoms. But that simplicity belies the complex role the molecule plays on Earth-it is an important greenhouse gas, is chemically active in the atmosphere, is used in many ecosystems as a kind of metabolic currency, and is the main component of natural gas, which is an energy source.. Methane also poses a complex scientific challenge: it forms through a number of different biological and nonbiological processes under a wide range of conditions. For example, microbes that live in cows stomachs make it; it forms by thermal breakdown of buried organic matter; and it is released by hot hydrothermal vents on the sea floor. And, unlike many other, more structurally complex molecules, simply knowing its chemical formula does not necessarily reveal how it formed. Therefore, it can be difficult to know where a sample of methane actually came from.. But now a team of ...

This pandemic has been with us for over a year now and it seems like we will not see the end of it yet. NOT in the very near future. With the emergence of a new variant which is more contagious and aggressive, what can we do to protect ourselves from being infected?. This new strain Delta, which originated in India, sweeps rapidly into our system destroying our cells thereby risking our lives. The majority of doctors agree that Delta will certainly accelerate the pandemic.. From what I know, people who are fully vaccinated are somewhat protected from contracting the virus, and people who are not are really at high risk of getting it. Especially if they are not following safety protocols. But judging from the recent news, some fully vaccinated persons still contracted Covid. So, what gives?. I am privileged to have been a part of a webinar entitled The Chain of Survival - from Primary Care to ICU facilitated by Dr. Zens Inc. about a drug that has proven its effectiveness against Covid 19. And ...
