These bacteria ferment polysaccharides from plant detritus, including sugars from cellulose and hemicellulose, into acids and solvents (1,– 5).The model organism Clostridium acetobutylicum and other Clostridium species are of considerable Clostridium acetobutylicum possesses two homologous buk genes, buk (or buk1) and buk2, which encode butyrate kinases involved in the last step of butyrate investigate the contribution of buk in detail, an in-frame deletion mutant was constructed.

Systems Biology of Clostridium (English Edition) eBook: Peter Durre, Peter Dürre: : Kindle-Shop INTRODUCTION. The genus Clostridium is a diverse group of low-GC Gram-positive anaerobes that includes a large number of species important for cellulose degradation, development of renewable energy sources, and biotechnology.

Many of these species are saprophytic organisms found in the soil ().Among them, Clostridium acetobutylicum is one of the best-studied clostridia and was used to develop Clostridium acetobutylicum is an important member of solventogenic clostridia, which offer hope toward sustainable and economical ABE solvent production through biological route (Gu et al., ).Butanol is not only a bulk chemical but also considered as a potential biofuel (Dürre, ).Compared to the food crop, lignocellulosic resources have been regarded as preferred substitutes to be Transcriptomic analysis was applied to acidogenic, solventogenic and alcohologenic steady-state C.

Used microarray is Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC transcriptional 44k v4, correspondance to GPL A consolidated bioprocess for cellulosic n-butanol production has been developed by engineering Clostridium cellulovorans to overexpress a bifunctional aldehyde/alcohol dehydrogenase.

Rational metabolic engineering is important to further improve butanol production. This study aimed to investigate intracellular metabolism and identify the key regulators of cellulosic butanol formation in C Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC cells harvested from a phosphate-limited chemostat culture maintained at pH had intracellular concentrations of acetate, butyrate, and butanol which were 13 To improve the aero- and solvent tolerance of the solvent-producing Clostridium acetobutylicum, glutathione biosynthetic capability was introduced into C.

The bioconversion of plant raw materials into refined chemicals has become a stimulating field of biotechnology. The expanding studies on Clostridium acetobutylicum, a gram-positive anaerobic bacterium that produces solvents such as acetone, butanol, and ethanol from carbohydrates, illustrate this interest (Zeikus, ; Blaschek, ; Jones and Woods, a; McNeil and Kristiansen   Clostridium acetobutylicum, a promising organism for biomass transformation, has the capacity to utilize a wide variety of carbon sources.

In the first step, sugars are oxidized to organic acids (acetic and butyric). This is accompanied with growth. The acids produced in the first phase are re-assimilated into solvents (acetone, Later a fermentation process for the production of acetone and butanol from carbohydrates was patented (4).
