The butyrate-degradingSyntrophospora bryantii degrades butyrate and a propionate-degrading strain (MPOB) degrades propionate in coculture with the hydrogen- and formate-utilizingMethanospirillum hungatii orMethanobacterium formicicum. However, the substrates are not degraded in constructed cocultures with twoMethanobrevibacter arboriphilus strains which are only able to consume hydrogen. Pure cultures of the acetogenic bacteria form both hydrogen and formate during butyrate oxidation with… CONTINUE READING
