Dyadobacter fermentans DSM 18053

Names Dyadobacter fermentans DSM 18053
Accession numbers NC_013037
Background Dyadobacter fermentans is a non-nitrogen-fixing bacterium isolated in an attempt to characterize the bacterial community that exists endophytically with Zea mays grown on a nitrogen-limited medium. It was not isolated when the same plants were watered with standard nitrogen levels. It is an aerobic, heterotrophic microorganism that is non-motile, ferments glucose and sucrose, and can grow on various carbon sources including acetate, sorbitol and amidon. It can ferment glucose and sucrose and produce acid from ribose. It grows between 15 and 37 degrees Celsius. It appears to be neither beneficial or pathogenic to maize, and as it was isolated following surface-sterilization of seeds is thought to grow endophytically (adapted from PMID 10758885).
