Abstract

Abacterial strain, designated MMFC1, was isolated from a methanol-fed microbial fuel cell that had been inoculated with sludge obtained from a facility in a chemical plant. The strain grows by fermenting methanol to produce acetate under anaerobic conditions, while homoacetogenic growth is not observed. MMFC1 also grows on pyruvate and lactate but not on sugars and other organic acids. Cells are curved rods and motile, have peritrichous flagella, and form endospores. The genome sequence of strain MMFC1 supports the physiological data. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence shows that strain MMFC1 is affiliated with the family , while the closest relative is with milarity of 93.5 %. Major fatty acids are iso-C 3-OH, C 9 and iso-C. On the basis of its physiological, genomic and phylogenetic features, a novel genus and species are proposed to accommodate strain MMFC1, with the name gen. nov., sp. nov. The type strain of is MMFC1 (=JCM 31821 = KCTC 15592).
