A new coccoid methanogen, Methanogenium tatii, was isolated and characterized. The mesophilic isolate can grow on and produce methane from H2:CO2 and formate. For growth acetate is strictly required. The cell shape, the G+C content of 54 mol% and DNA-DNA homology data suggest it to be a Methanogenium species.

TLDR
Based on phylogenetic analysis and phenotypic characteristics, strain HASU(T) is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Methanofollis, for which the name Methan ofollis ethanolicus sp. Expand
Methanogenium liminatans spec. nov., a new coccoid, mesophilic methanogen able to oxidize secondary alcohols
A new mesophilic, coccoid methanogen, assigned as Methanogenium liminatans spec. nov. strain DSM 4140, was isolated from effluent of a reactor for the anaerobic treatment of industrial waste water.Expand
Methanolinea tarda gen. nov., sp. nov., a methane-producing archaeon isolated from a methanogenic digester sludge.
TLDR
These phenotypic and genetic properties justified the creation of a novel species of a new genus for the strain, for which the name Methanolinea tarda gen. nov., sp. Expand
Classification of secondary alcohol-utilizing methanogens including a new thermophilic isolate
TLDR
A thermophilic coccoid methanogenic bacterium, strain TCI, that grew optimally around 55° C was isolated with 2-propanol as hydrogen donor for methanogenesis from CO2 and revealed close relationships to the genus Methanogenium. Expand
Methanolinea mesophila sp. nov., a hydrogenotrophic methanogen isolated from rice field soil, and proposal of the archaeal family Methanoregulaceae fam. nov. within the order Methanomicrobiales.
TLDR
The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity indicates that strain TNR(T) and M. tarda NOBI-1(T), isolated from an anaerobic, propionate-degradation enrichment culture that was originally established from a rice field soil sample from Taiwan, represent different species within the same genus. Expand
Isolation and characterization of a thermophilic Methanobacterium able to use formate, the strain FTF
TLDR
A thermophilic anaerobic which produced methane from formate and H2 and CO2 was isolated from a bench-scale digester treating a mixture of solid wastes at 55°C, after enrichment cultures on sodium acetate and deposited in the Deutsche Sammlung von Mikroorganismen as strain DSM 3012. Expand
15 The Family Methanomicrobiaceae
TLDR
This family of mesophilic or moderately thermophilic and neutrophilic methanogens belongs to the order Methanomicrobiales and has been found in a wide variety of anaerobic environments where methane is produced: the rumen of ruminant animals, an aerobic marine sediments, wetlands, oil wells, and others. Expand
Methanocalculus taiwanensis sp. nov., isolated from an estuarine environment.
TLDR
It is proposed that these two organisms should be placed in a new species, namely Methanocalculus taiwanensis, because the optimal salt concentrations, the cellular protein profiles and the molecular masses of surface-layer protein subunits of strain P2F9704aT were different from those of the other two known Methanocculus species.
