Paenibacillus sp. JDR-2

Names Paenibacillus sp. JDR-2
Accession numbers NC_012914
Background Paenibacillus sp. strain JDR-2 is an aggressively xylanolytic bacterium isolated from decaying sweet gum wood. It is a free-living, aerobic, mesophilic, rod-shaped, sporulating bacterium found in association with rotting wood. Its extracellular xylanase efficiently degrades methylglucuronoxylan (MeGAXn), the major hemicellulose found in hardwood and crop residues, making it a potentially useful organism for the conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to alternative fuels and bio-based products (adapted from PubMed 16461704).
