General information

Species:  Acidaminococcus fermentans (strain ATCC 25085 / DSM 20731 / VR4)
Species code: ACIFV
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Firmicutes; Negativicutes; Acidaminococcales; Acidaminococcaceae; Acidaminococcus (TaxID: 591001) [NEWT/ NCBI]
Description: Acidaminococcus fermentans (strain ATCC 25085 / DSM 20731 / VR4, the type strain) is an anaerobic Gram-negative bacterium isolated from a pig gut. It can utilize amino acids as the sole source of energy for growth, but lactate, fumarate, malate, succinate, citrate, and pyruvate can not serve as energy sources for growth. Acetic and butyric acids and CO2 are produced. Growth is good at 30 to 37 degrees Celsius and poor or negative at 25 and 45 degrees Celsius. The cells do not survive heating at 60 degrees Celsius for 30 min. (Adapted from PMID: 5784223).
Properties: Presence of flagella: No
Human pathogen: not known
Interaction: Animal commensal in Mammalia
Number of membranes: 1
