Lignocellulosic biomass deconstruction by the extremely thermophilic bacterium Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus

ABSTRACT: The ideal microorganism for consolidated biomass processing to biofuels has the ability to breakdown of lignocellulose. This issue was examined for the H2-producing, extremely thermophilic bacterium Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus growing on lignocellulose samples as well as model hemicellulose components. Identification of the enzymes utilized by the cell in lignocellulose saccharification was done using whole-genome transcriptional response analysis and comparative genomics. C. saccharolyticus was subcultured (overnight) seven times on the substrate of interest in modified DSMZ 640 medium before inoculating a 1-liter batch containing 0.5 gram substrate per liter. Cells were grown at 70 °C until mid-logarithmic phase (3-5*107) and harvested by rapid cooling to 4 °C and centrifugation and then stored at -80 °C. To elucidate the transporters plus the central carbon metabolic pathways and their regulation utilized on the different sugars, transcriptome analysis was performed after growth on switchgrass, poplar, glucose and xylose.
