Project description:Whole Genome Metabolism of "Methylocystis sp. SC2"
This is a whole genome metabolism model of Methylocystis sp. SC2.
This model has been automatically generated by the SuBliMinaL Toolbox
and libAnnotationSBML using information coming from from KEGG (release 66, April 2013, accessed via the resource's web services interface) and, where relevant, augmented with metabolic pathway information extracted from MetaCyc (version 17.0, March 2013).
This model has been produced by the path2models
project and is currently hosted on BioModels Database

Project description:Here we present the assembled genome of the facultative methanotroph, Methylocystis strain SB2, along with assessment of its transcriptome when grown on methane vs. ethanol. As expected, transcriptomic analyses indicate methane is converted to carbon dioxide via the canonical methane oxidation pathway for energy generation, and that carbon is assimilated at the level of formaldehyde via the serine cycle. When grown on ethanol, it appears this strain converts ethanol to acetyl-CoA and then utilizes the TCA cycle for energy generation and the ethylmalonyl CoA pathway for the production of biomass. All cultures were grown in triplicates for subsequent DNA and RNA extraction as well as for subsequent sequencing using Illumina. Transcriptomic analysis results presented in this Series.
