Cellulophaga lytica DSM 7489

Names Cellulophaga lytica DSM 7489
Accession numbers NC_015167
Background Cellulophaga lytica (strain ATCC 23178 / DSM 7489 / JCM 8516 / NBRC 14961 / NCIMB 1423 / VKM B-1433 / Cy l20) is an aerobic, chemoorganotrophic, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from marine beach mud, Limon, Costa Rica. C.lytica is able to degrade agar, alginate, gelatin and starch, but not casein, cellulose (filter paper), chitin, alginic acid, elastin or fibrinogen. There are conflicting observations describing the ability of C. lytica to degrade carboxymethylcellulose (CMC). Acid is formed oxidatively from cellobiose, galactose, glucose, lactose, maltose and xylose. C. lytica is sensitive to oleandomycin, lincomycin and shows resistance to benzylpenicillin, carbencillin, gentamicin, kanamycin, neomycin, ampicillin, streptomycin and tetracycline. The species is of biotechnological interest because its members produce a wide range of extracellular enzymes capable of degrading proteins and polysaccharides.
