Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Ruminococcus albus SY3 pan proteome (fasta)

The cellulolytic organisms are responsible for the breakdown of plant polysaccharides such as cellulose, xylan, and hemicellulose in the cow rumen. They require phenylacetic and phenylpropionic acids for maximal growth, and produces cellulosomes at the cell surface that are multimeric protein complexes that contain scaffolding proteins and degradative enzymes. The cellulosome, along with type IV fimbriae, are important for adherence of the bacterium to solid substrates such as cellulose and attachment of the bacterium is required for cellulose degradation. Understanding the metabolism of plant polysaccharides may enable scientists to improve the productivity of ruminant organisms such as cattle. Ruminococcus albus (strain ATCC 27210 / DSM 20455 / JCM 14654 / NCDO 2250 / 7) is an anaerobic, cellulolytic Gram-positive bacterium. This organism is able to degrade cellulose and also produces an antimicrobial compound that prevents the growth of Ruminococcus flavefaciens. (Adapted from:
