The primary alcohol/aldehyde dehydrogenase (coded by the aad gene) is responsible for butanol formation in Clostridium acetobutylicum. We complemented the non-sporulating, non-solvent-producing C.(More)
Central to all clostridia is the orchestration of endospore formation (i.e., sporulation) and, specifically, the roles of differentiation-associated sigma factors. Moreover, there is considerable(More)
Clostridium acetobutylicum is both a model organism for the understanding of sporulation in solventogenic clostridia and its relationship to solvent formation and an industrial organism for anaerobic(More)
In order to better characterize the initial stages of sporulation past Spo0A activation and the associated solventogenesis in the important industrial and model organism Clostridium acetobutylicum,(More)
