In addition, the organism is saccharolytic (can break down sugar) (1) and capable of producing a number of different commercially useful products; most notably acetone, ethanol and butanol (2). A Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824 genomic library was constructed using randomly sheared DNA. It furthers the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide, This PDF is available to Subscribers Only. It is mesophilic with optimal temperatures of 10-65°C. Other Clostridia produce several different-looking colony types, so the culture appears mixed. It has been known that acetate and butyrate first formed during the acidogenic phase are reassimilated to form acetone-butanol-ethanol (cold channel). endobj Clostridium acetobutylicum is a Gram-positive bacillus (1). Introduction. 2020-12-22T17:15:24-08:00 Changes in colony morphology were associated with the degeneration of solvent-producing strains of Clostridium acetobutylicum.The most efficient solvent-producing strains gave rise exclusively to colonies with dense centers containing large numbers of spores. Size – The size of Clostridium perfringens is about 4–6 µm × 1 µm (micrometer). The Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824 spo0A gene was cloned, and two recombinant strains were generated, an spo0A inactivation strain (SKO1) and an spo0A overexpression strain [824(pMPSOA)]. Endospore formation resembles the mechanism elucidated in Bacillus. Genetic and biochemical analysis of solvent formation in Clostridium acetobutylicum. SKO1 was developed by targeted gene inactivation with a replicative plasmid capable of double-crossover chromosomal integration—a technique never used before with solventogenic clostridia. The growth medium of C. acetobutylicum strains was the liquid reinforced Clostridial medium (RCM) with 0.5% glucose or RCM agar plate at 37°C under anaerobic conditions. Grows weakly in nutrient broth. Protoplasts of B-592, B-593, and ATCC 10132 grew as cell wall-deficient forms (L-colonies) when plated on the first medium (BLM) and continued to do so through at least 3 passages on this medium. Many outgrowths of various morphologies developed from the perimeter of such colonies after several days of incubation.
