Members of the genus Methanosarcina are strictly anaerobic archaea that derive their metabolic energy from the conversion of a restricted number of substrates to methane. H2 + CO2 are converted to CH4 via the CO2-reducing pathway, while methanol and methylamines are metabolized by the methylotrophic pathway. Two novel electron transport systems are involved in the process of methanogenesis. Both systems are able to use a heterodisulfide as electron acceptor and either H2 or F420H2 as electron… CONTINUE READING
