Methane is the most abundant hydrocarbon in the atmosphere and after CO2; it contributes for 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Marine sediments are a large reservoir of methane where approximately 80% of the methane is formed through a biological process known as methanogenesis by methanogenic archaea. Despite the high rates of CH4 production in marine sediments, about 90% of methane flux from sediment is recycled through the microbial process, anaerobic oxidation of methane (AOM) with… 


Integrated metagenomic and metaproteomic analyses of an ANME-1-dominated community in marine cold seep sediments.
The results demonstrated that the integrated metagenomic and metaproteomic approach was effective in assessing in situ metabolic processes in cold seep sediments.
Metagenomic analysis of microbial consortium from natural crude oil that seeps into the marine ecosystem offshore Southern California
Crude oils can be major contaminants of the marine ecosystem and microorganisms play a significant role in the degradation of its main constituents. To increase our understanding of the microbial
Metagenome and mRNA expression analyses of anaerobic methanotrophic archaea of the ANME-1 group.
The dataset supports the hypothesis of a reversal of the methanogenesis pathway in ANME-1 and points towards downstream electron-accepting redox components different from the ones known from methanogenic archaea.
New insight into stratification of anaerobic methanotrophs in cold seep sediments.
Methane seepages typically harbor communities of anaerobic methane oxidizers (ANME); however, knowledge about fine-scale vertical variation of ANME in response to geochemical gradients is limited. We
Anaerobic oxidation of methane: progress with an unknown process.
This review summarizes what is known and unknown about AOM on earth and its key catalysts, the anaerobic methanotrophic archaea clades and their bacterial partners.
Insights into the genomes of archaea mediating the anaerobic oxidation of methane.
Large-insert genomic libraries were constructed using DNA extracted from a methanotrophic microbial mat growing in the anoxic part of the Black Sea, and from sediments above gas hydrates at the Hydrate Ridge off the coast of Oregon, to gain deeper insights into genome characteristics of the different ANME groups.
Multiple archaeal groups mediate methane oxidation in anoxic cold seep sediments
The results provide direct evidence for the involvement of at least two distinct archaeal groups (ANME-1 and ANME-2) in AOM at methane seeps and indicate that the microbial species and biotic interactions mediating anaerobic methanotrophy are diverse and complex.
Environmental regulation of the anaerobic oxidation of methane: a comparison of ANME-I and ANME-II communities.
The ecological niches of methanotrophic Archaea seem to be mainly defined by the availability of methane and sulfate, but it remains open which additional factors lead to the dominance of ANME-I or -II in the environment.
A marine microbial consortium apparently mediating anaerobic oxidation of methane
A large fraction of globally produced methane is converted to CO2 by anaerobic oxidation in marine sediments. Strong geochemical evidence for net methane consumption in anoxic sediments is based on
Deep-Sea Archaea Fix and Share Nitrogen in Methane-Consuming Microbial Consortia
It is shown that deep-sea anaerobic methane-oxidizing archaea fix N2, as well as structurally similar CN–, and share the products with sulfate-reducing bacterial symbionts, and reveals a link between the global carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur cycles.
