Genome sequence of the methanotrophic poly-β-hydroxybutyrate producer Methylocystis parvus OBBP.


PMID 23012286

Abstract

Methylocystis parvus OBBP is an obligate methylotroph considered the type species of the genus Methylocystis. Two pmoCAB particulate methane monooxygenase operons and one additional singleton pmoC paralog were identified in the sequence. No evidence of genes encoding soluble methane monooxygenase was found. Comparison of M. parvus OBBP and Methylocystis sp. strain Rockwell (ATCC 49242) suggests that both species should be taxonomically classified in different genera.
