Bacillus amyloliquefaciens DSM 7

Names Bacillus amyloliquefaciens DSM 7
Accession numbers NC_014551
Background Bacillus amyloliquefaciens was originally described as potent producer of liquefying amylase and other industrially important extracellular enzymes. Type strain B. amyloliquefaciens DSM 7 (described by Fukumoto in 1943 as strain "F") was originally isolated from infested soil in Germany. It is also known as strain 10A6 in the Bacillus Genetic Stock Center culture collection. It does not colonize Arabidopsis roots. It is strictly aerobic and as expected liquefies starch. It can be distinguished from plant associated B.amyloliquefaciens based on a number of criteria, and 2 separate subspecies are proposed (plantarum and amyloliquefaciens). Comparison with a plant associated and plant-growth enhancing strain (FZB42, BACA2) has shown that this strain (DSM 7) harbors a significantly lower number of gene clusters involved in nonribosomal synthesis of secondary metabolites (adapted from PMID 21262282 and 20817842).
