The genetic study of the clostridia is in its infancy, but significant advances have been made in recent years. C. acetobutylicum was the most reported in acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation for synthesis of biobutanol with higher yields [5, 6]. Cells were stained in an iodine solution. Currently, petroleum-based products have largely replaced these fermentation processes. Clostridium strains with the potential of utilizing various biomass (e.g., corn cobs, cassava and rice bran) and the production of biofuels (e.g., butanol) were mainly classified within Clade 1 and Clade 5 such as C. cellulovorans 743B and C. saccharoperbutylacetonicum N1-4 [39,40,41].Genomes from the same clustered group usually appear to have similar metabolic functions, which … It was formerly used from the First World War onwards on an industrial … Although most plasmids encode unknown (cryptic) functions, some have been demonstrated to possess genes for virulence and antibiotic resistance. NNT: The enzymes involved are amino acid decarboxylases. The batch process, using starch or molasses as substrate, is followed by distillation. Using response surface method, 20 runs of experiments were carried out to investigate the effects of initial pH variation (5–8), temperature (25–40°C), and glucose concentration (4–12 g/l) on biohydrogen production in dark fermentation method by Clostridium acetobutylicum (PTCC 1492). Another route, i.e. [1][2] In 2013, the first microbial production of short-chain alkanes was reported[3] - which is a considerable step toward the production of gasoline. On the basis of these inconclusive criteria, species of the genus Clostridium reflect a large heterogeneous group with pheno- and genotypical diversity. The production of granulose (an intracellular reserve polygranule), capsule and exopolysaccharide was investigated in a synthetic medium in which the o Clostridium acetobutylicum starts to produce ethanol and acetone at around 18 h under iron‐reducing conditions and without iron, but only in small amounts (<0.5 mM) (data not shown). The rheology of the bioprocess and the downstream processing of the product heavily depend on the ability of C. acetobutylicum mutants to produce butanol. Spores are oval and subterminal. This bacterium synthesizes a special membrane protein called UreI that enhances urea transport into the cell. In the flask culture involving in situ butanol recovery fermentation using Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824 and the adsorbent, production of acetone, butanol, and ethanol (ABE) increased by 46.8%. Clostridium acetobutylicum belongs to the group, demonstrating peritrichous flagella and amylolytic activity. This is mainly because solvents and organic acids could be used for production of fine chemicals such as butyl butyrate, butyl oleate, etc. Most of the genes coding for these proteins are grouped in a cluster similar to that found in cellulolytic clostridial species, such as Clostridium cellulovorans . Indeed, it was the second largest fermentation process in first half of twentieth century, producing acetone for war-related activities and butanol for the lacquer industry. The extracellular xylanase activity was increased 88-fold, and 4.03 g/L biobutanol was obtained from hemicellulose, which has … The production of solvents is accompanied by the initiation of sporulation. Previously, a novel macroporous resin, KA-I, was synthesized in our laboratory and was demonstrated to be a good adsorbent with high selectivity and capacity for butanol recovery from a model solution. The ABE method devi… using natural polyphenols, and more specifically condensed tannins that can be extracted from wastes produced by the wood and wine industries and their molecular subunits such as catechin, resorcinol and/or 4-methylcatechol offers other possibilities.107. The highest glucose consumption rate was achieved at the stationary phase, i.e. Piotr Tomasik, Derek Horton, in Advances in Carbohydrate Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2012. Table 1. Phage infection and culture lysis have been a continual problem of clostridial cultures used for solvent production. Also called diphenolic acid, DPA is prepared by the reaction of levulinic acid with two molecules of phenol. Among the clostridia, Clostridium acetobutylicum is a microorganism of choice as (i) it has already been used for the industrial production of solvent (Cornillot and Soucaille, 1996) and (ii) the genetic tools for gene knockout or gene over-expression are currently available (Mermelstein and Papoutsakis, 1993; Green et al., 1996). Clostridium acetobutylicum, ATCC 824, is a commercially valuable bacterium sometimes called the "Weizmann Organism", after Jewish-Russian-born Chaim Weizmann. During sporulation, cells swell markedly and form granulose, a polysaccharide reserve material. A senior lecturer at the University of Manchester, England, he used them in 1916 as a bio-chemical tool to produce at the same time, jointly, acetone, ethanol, and butanol from starch. Chaim Weizmann was hired to work on the problem at Manchester University and fermentation became an attractive route in which to acquire the acetone necessary for the process. Because the butanol:acetone ratio of wild type C. acetobutylicum ATCC 824 is only 1.6:1, increasing butanol production is an important goal. For this purpose, the second butyrate kinase of C. acetobutylicum encoded by the bukII gene instead of butyrate kinase I encoded by the buk gene was employed. The inactivation of agrA did not affect the ability of the pathogen to invade and multiply in mammalian cells in vitro. They note that although production of 1-butanol by the fermentative CoA-dependent pathway using the reversal of β-oxidation exists in nature, condensation of two molecules of acetyl-CoA to acetoacetyl-CoA, is thermodynamically unfavorable. This growth phase is called acidogenesis. Acetone was used in the important wartime task of casting cordite. This study showed that repeated batch fermentation improved the efficiency of butanol production over batch culture fermentation by Clostridium acetobutylicum YM1. In this study, the phenotypic characteristics of Clostridium acetobutylicum, Clostridium beijerinckii, 'Clostridium saccharoperbutylacetonicum', and an unnamed Clostridium sp. Also, a recent paper reported that in-frame deletion of agrA and agrD resulted in an altered adherence and biofilm formation on abiotic surfaces, suggesting the involvement of the agr system of L. monocytogenes during the early stages of biofilm formation.209 The production of thiolactone peptide was also confirmed in the culture supernatant of L. innocua and L. monocytogenes (N. Sujaku, J. Nakayama et al., unpublished data). Time course data of a batch fermentation for butanol production by Clostridium acetobutylicum. During pre-treatments of (ligno) cellulose through thermic and/or enzymatic processes, complex mixtures of oligo saccharides with beta 1,4-glycosidic bonds can be produced. The method has been described since as the ABE process, (Acetone Butanol Ethanol fermentation process), yielding 3 parts of acetone, 6 of butanol, and 1 of ethanol. The xylanase (XynB) encoded by CA_P0053 was highly soluble and fully secreted from C. acetobutylicum. Clostridia cannot degrade lignocellulose, so therefore physicochemical or enzymatic pretreatment is required. Nevertheless, only about 40 solventogenic Clostridium strains survived in public strain collections and differ significantly in carbohydrate utilization, butanol production, or solvent yield. Preliminary optimized culture conditions improved the riboXavin production to more than 70 mg/l in Xask. One approach involves simultaneous saccharification/fermentation systems by co-cultures of C. cellulolyticum or C. thermocellum and C. acetobutylicum, or use of cellulases plus C. acetobutylicum. In L. monocytogenes, a knockout mutant of agrA-like gene was created.208 The production of several secreted proteins was modified in the agrA mutant, indicating that the agr-like locus influenced protein secretion. Inclusion of beta amylase accelerates the fermentation.2947 Saccharification of starch is complete within 12 h, and the sugars formed are totally fermented within the next 36 h. Pentosans remain intact.2948, In later work, continuous fermentations have been described. ATCC reference organism 824 C.Acetobutylicum. Strain 824(pGROE1) was created to overexpress the groESL operon genes from a clostridial thiolase promoter. C. acetobutylicum is able to rapidly convert sugars into solvents through the acetone–butanol–ethanol (ABE) fermentation pathway. Nevertheless, a production facility was operated until recently by National Chemical Products, South Africa, where petroleum was scarce due to the international embargo. Co-production of solvents (butanol, acetone, and ethanol) and organic acids (butyrate and acetate) by Clostridium acetobutylicum using lignocellulosic biomass as a substrate could further enlarge the application scope of butanol fermentation. We report that the addition of supra-physiological concentrations of An increase in phospholipids with amino acid head groups is another measure that appears to be aimed at decreasing proton permeability of the cytoplasmic membrane. They incorporate a modified CoA-dependent 1-butanol production pathway into Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 to produce 1-butanol from CO2. Clostridium beijerinckii was also used for industrial fermentations and includes strains that are able to produce isopropanol instead of acetone. Another enzyme involved in the buffering to the cytoplasm is urease, which is thought to be critically important in the ability of the gastric ulcer/carcinoma-causing bacterium Helicobacter pylori to colonize the stomach. Unlike yeast, which can digest only sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide, C. acetobutylicum and other Clostridia can digest whey, sugar, starch, cellulose and perhaps certain types of lignin, yielding butanol, propionic acid, ether, and glycerin. Meanwhile, the metabolism of the cells switches to solvent production (solventogenesis), which is referred as the solventogenic switch in the acetone–butanol–ethanol (ABE) fermentation. The structure of LamD558, which was the main product, was determined to be a five-amino acid residue thiolactone peptide (Figure 17).207 Similar to staphylococcal AIPs, LamD558 has a ring structure consisting of five amino acids in which the thiolactone linkage is formed between C-terminal α-carboxyl group and sulfhydryl group of N-terminal cysteine residue; however, it lacks the two- or three-amino acid tail moiety found in staphylococcal AIPs and E. faecalis GBAP.181,193 Microarray analysis of lamA-knockout strain suggested a number of genes regulated by lam system, including a subset of putative capsular polysaccharide biosynthetic genes.207 It should be noted that the lamA-knockout mutant displayed less adherent phenotype compared to wild type, suggesting correlation between the quorum sensing-regulated capsular polysaccharide biosynthesis and biofilm formation. Reduction of the acid produces butanol, together with ethanol.2942–2944 Such fermentation can be performed not only with glucose but also with mashes.2945 In order to produce acetone, fermentation with Clostridium should be conducted2946 between 28 and 32 °C, maintaining the pH between 5.8 and 6.1. Clostridium acetobutylicum belongs to a group of Gram-positive and endospore forming anaerobes and is considered to be a model organism for solventogenic clostridia due to its acetone–butanol–ethanol (ABE) fermentation metabolism. saccharoberbutylacetonicum’ N1) showing different stages of spore formation among vegetative cells. A senior lecturer at the University of Manchester, England, he used them in 1916 as a bio-chemical tool to produce at the same time, jointly, acetone, ethanol, and butanol from starch. Owen P. Ward, Ajay Singh, in Advances in Applied Microbiology, 2002. Depend-ing on the nature of the carbohydrate and the culture conditions, the ratio of conversion to solvents can vary (1, 6, 23). English. It contains a carboxyl group, absent from BPA, which confers an additional functionality that could be useful in polymer synthesis. Lan and Liao (2012) discuss the cyanobacterial biobutanol production from Synechococcus in a paper originating from the lead laboratory of Liao in the United States with 148 citations. Recent bacterial genome sequencing studies have revealed a number of agr-like loci in the genomes of low-GC Gram-positive bacteria other than staphylococci and E. faecalis, for example, Clostridium acetobutylicum, Clostridium thermocellum, Listeria innocua, Listeria monocytogenes, Lactobacillus plantarum, Bacillus cereus, and Roseburia inulinivorans. It has since been used for the fermentative production of acetone, butanol, and ethanol from starch in … The best producing would later come to be known as Clostridium acetobutylicum.

Angélique Chanal, in. Bacteria of the genus Clostridium fulfill four general criteria: (1) possess a Gram-positive cell wall, (2) form heat-resistant endospores, (3) exhibit an obligate anaerobic fermentation metabolism, and (4) are incapable of dissimilatory sulfate reduction. Thereafter, attempts were made to modify the C. acetobutylicum purine pathway by over-expression of the Clostridium purF gene, which encodes the rate-limiting At this time, the cells accumulate the polysaccharide granulose, a glycogen-like polymer consisting of α-d-glucose, which is expected to function as an energy deposit for subsequent spore formation. However, the pro-ductivity of metabolites can be improved by up to a factor of ten through suitable bacterium improvement techniques [9]. It is interesting that the gene cluster is located adjacent to a putative lantibiotic gene cluster, suggesting that the encoded agr-like quorum sensing system might regulate the production of lantibiotics in this highly pathogenic B. cereus strain. In this study, SP850 was systematically selected as an optimal adsorbent showing high butanol selectivity. Light-microscopy picture of forespores of Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824. Clostridium acetobutylicum has played an important role in biotechnology throughout the 20th century. Figure 1. Biochemical characteristics of butanol- and acetone-producing Clostridium species. The optimum growth temperature is 35–37 °C, and biotin and 4-aminobenzoate are usually required as growth factors. This fermentation first produces butanoic acid, accompanied by minor amounts of propanoic and acetic acids, and oxygen. Abstract. C. acetobutylicum fermentation products to kerosene and diesel blendstocks (Sreekumar et al., 2014). Metabolic engineering of clostridium acetobutylicum for the production of fuels and chemicals. Urea is present in the gastric juice, but its permeation into the cell without UreI is too slow to be effective in enabling H. pylori to keep a neutral cytoplasm. Blaschek, in Encyclopedia of Food Microbiology (Second Edition), 2014. Ethanol production is undesirable as the short chain co ndensation products of acetone lam consists of four genes: lamB encoding biosynthetic enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of cyclic AIP like agrB, lamD encoding propeptide of cyclic AIP like agrD, lamC encoding histidine kinase like agrC, and lamA encoding response regulator like agrA. This process was discovered by Weizmann.2941 He found that a microorganism then called Clostridium acetobutylicum produces acetone and butyl alcohol from saccharide substrates. Johnson, in Encyclopedia of Microbiology (Third Edition), 2009. All butanol-forming clostridia are classified into four major taxonomic groups on the basis of phage biotyping, DNA fingerprinting, and 16S rRNA base sequencing. "Genome sequence and comparative analysis of the solvent-producing bacterium Clostridium acetobutylicum", "Amino acid transport by membrane vesicles of an obligate anaerobic bacterium, Clostridium acetobutylicum", "Structure of an endo-beta-1,4-glucanase gene from Clostridium acetobutylicum P262 showing homology with endoglucanase genes from Bacillus spp", "Effects of butanol on Clostridium acetobutylicum", "UCLA researchers engineer E. coli to produce record-setting amounts of alternative fuel". Bacteriophage are widespread in pathogenic and industrial strains of clostridia. Fermentative hydrogen production Clostridium acetobutylicum a b s t r a c t Biohydrogen production is measured using a variety of techniques, ranging from low cost intermittent gas release methods where yields are usually reduced due to high partial pressures of hydrogen, to expensive respirometers that can eliminate pressure buildup. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Microbiology and Parasitology. Clostridium acetobutylicum cells cannot be identified by their metabolic products alone, as solvent may be absent and several related species are also able to form butanol – for example, Clostridium beijerinckii (formerly Clostridium butylicum), Clostridium saccharoperbutylacetonicum, or Clostridium saccharobutylicum. The anaerobe Clostridium acetobutylicum belongs to the most important industrially used bacteria. The solventogenic clostridia convert the produced acids (acetate and butyrate) into the neutral solvents (acetone and butanol, respectively). Spores are oval and subterminal and spore germination completes the clostridial cell cycle. They note that the removal of oxygen is an important factor in the synthesis of 1-butanol in this organism. A study was performed to optimize the production of solvents from whey permeate in batch fermentation using Clostridium acetobutylicum P262. Requires numerous vitamins in addition to amino acids. Heterologous secretion of the latter enzymes, however, can be obtained by grafting specific combinations of scaffoldin modules at the N-terminus of these cellulases, which are then used as cargo domains. Cadaverine picks up a proton, thereby contributing to the deacidification of the cytoplasm. In this study, production of butanol directly from hemicellulose was achieved simply through overexpression of an indigenous xylanase in Clostridium acetobutylicum. The results showed that formic acid, coumaric acid, and furfural at 0.5 g/L (sodium formate equivalent) inhibited ABE production. findarticles.com: Bacteria speeds drug to tumors - use of Clostridium acetobutylicum enzyme to activate cancer drug CB 1954, EPA Clostridium acetobutylicum Final Risk Assessment, Genetic Engineering of Clostridium acetobutylicum for Enhanced Production of Hydrogen Gas, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Clostridium_acetobutylicum&oldid=993473823, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, This page was last edited on 10 December 2020, at 20:12. Furthermore, C. acetobutylicum is well characterized by its biphasic fermentative metabolism (Figure 1). The achievement of the complete genome sequences of approximately five Clostridium spp. cells of Clostridium acetobutylicum YM1 eliminated the lag phase and then improved the productivity of butanol and total ABE. Most of the genes coding for these proteins are grouped in a cluster similar to that found in cellulolytic clostridial species, such as Clostridium cellulovorans. Generally speaking, the amylase system providing the acetone–butanol fermentation contains amylolytic, dextrinolytic, and saccharifying components. Clostridium acetobutylicum, a promising organism for biomass transformation, has the capacity to utilize a wide variety of carbon sources. Encyclopedia of Food Microbiology (Second Edition), Advances in Carbohydrate Chemistry and Biochemistry, Sueharu Horinouchi, ... Tsukasa Ikeda, in, Encyclopedia of Microbiology (Third Edition), Cyanobacterial Bioenergy and Biofuels Science and Technology: A Scientometric Overview, Polymers for a Sustainable Environment and Green Energy, Polymer Science: A Comprehensive Reference. PDMS/ceramic composite membrane was directly integrated with acetone–butanol–ethanol (ABE) fermentation using Clostridium acetobutylicum XY16 at 37 °C and in situ removing ABE from fermentation broth. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. C. beijerinckii was also used for industrial fermentations. The former mechanisms include making the cytoplasmic electric potential (Δψ) positive, so as to oppose the entry of protons that, of course, are positively charged. Between 1912 and 1914, Weizmann isolated a number of strains. 1). In this study, effects of different single biomass derived inhibitors on acetone–butanol–ethanol (ABE) production by Clostridium acetobutylicum CICC 8016 were first investigated. Clostridium acetobutylicum, ATCC 824, is a commercially valuable bacterium sometimes called the "Weizmann Organism", after Jewish-Russian-born Chaim Weizmann. Hanno Biebl, in Encyclopedia of Food Microbiology, 1999. It also includes changes in the composition of the cytoplasmic membrane so as to render it less permeant to protons. E.A. 21.27 g/L/d. Clostridium acetobutylicum is able to metabolize a great variety ofcarbon sources (12, 18, 22). Levulinic acid is believed to be a cheap platform chemical and can be commercially produced from cellulose-rich biomass (especially from waste biomass) in large scale.2,106 It may be a direct replacement for BPA not only in epoxy resins but also polycarbonates, polyarylates and other polymers. A second approach involves using genetically engineering to create solvent-producing strains that simultaneously produce cellulases: by cloning the cellulases of C. cellulolyticum or C. thermocellum into C. acetobutylicum or C. beijerinckii (Minton et al., 1993; Kim et al., 1994). By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Whereas genome miningpoints to ahigh potential for secondary metabolism in C. acetobutylicum,the functions of most biosynthetic gene clusters are cryptic. The optimum growth temperature is 37°C, and biotin and 4-aminobenzoate are required as growth factors. Metabolic engineering of clostridium acetobutylicum for the production of fuels and chemicals Ngoc Phuong Thao Nguyen To cite this version: Ngoc Phuong Thao Nguyen. The presence of gene cassette of agrB and agrD homologues suggests the potential to produce cyclic peptide, and the presence of two-component regulatory gene orthologue suggests the potential to sense the produced cyclic peptide autoinducer. Plasmids and bacteriophage are commonly found in clostridia, particularly in pathogenic species. One organism that is of particular interest as a potential CBP chassis is Clostridium acetobutylicum, a Gram-positive, spore forming, obligate anaerobe that belongs to the group I clostridia [15, 16]. In the case of B. cereus, the agr-like gene cluster is found only in a highly pathogenic strain, G9241. Fermentations performed at relatively low pH values resulted in high solvent yields and productivities, but lactose utilization was incomplete. The acetone–butanol process, developed during World War I, was successfully operated for many years. C. acetobutylicum cannot be identified by their metabolic products alone, as solvent may be absent and several related species are also able to form butanol. However, the virulence of the agrA mutant was attenuated in the mouse (a 10-fold increase in the 50% lethal dose by the intravenous route), demonstrating a role for the agr-like locus in the virulence of L. monocytogenes. Table 1 shows the biochemical tests presently in use to differentiate C. acetobutylicum from these species. Strain degradation and the loss of capacity of clostridia to produce high yields of solvents has also been problematic for industrial processes. Owing to the repeated use of traditional mutagenesis methods, the strains have developed a certain tolerance. One of the crucial enzymes - a fatty acyl-CoA reductase - came from Clostridium acetobutylicum. The protonated cadaverine is exchanged for external lysine by the antiporter CadB. Abstract To reduce butanol toxicity, adsorptive fermentation has been extensively studied. Clostridial stage cells differentiate into forespores that still contain significant amounts of the polysaccharide granulose (Figure 2). It was formerly known as C. butylicum and included strains that produced isopropanol instead of acetone C. acetobutylicum has recently been reclassified on the basis of phage biotyping, DNA fingerprint and 16S rRNA base sequencing. From: Encyclopedia of Food Microbiology (Second Edition), 2014, Henri-Pierre Fierobe, ... Angélique Chanal, in Methods in Enzymology, 2012. In this work, Clostridium acetobutylicum was metabolically engineered for highly selective butyric acid production. Clostridium acetobutylicum DSM 2152 (= ‘C. Nevertheless, by reacting epichlorohydrin with sorbitol (commercial products from Nagase ChemteX or JSI Co), isosorbide, phenols extracted from lignin, or by one pot reaction of furfural with trimethylsulfonium iodide in a basic aqueous medium leading to 2-furyloxirane, new 100% biobased epoxy prepolymers have been prepared and tested.102,103,104 Another route is the enzymatic epoxidation of cardanol.105, However, “bio-phenol” is a still missing building block and more generally, modified aromatic-based epoxy prepolymers would be desirable because of the classification of BPA as CMR R3 substance, even more so, as the discussion around the endocrine potential of BPA has entered the greater public. They observe that addition of polyhistidine-tag increased the overall activity of Ter and resulted in higher 1-butanol production. Clostridium acetobutylicum (C. acetobutylicum) has considerable potential for use in bioenergy development. Clostridium acetobutylicum can propagate on fibrous matrices and form biofilms that have improved butanol tolerance and a high fermentation rate and can be repeatedly used. They utilize C. acetobutylicum2949,2950 and C. beijerinckii BA101.2951 Propanol and butanol can be produced from wheat flour after extracting the gluten component.2852, Sueharu Horinouchi, ... Tsukasa Ikeda, in Comprehensive Natural Products II, 2010. At the end of exponential growth in association with the transition growth phase, the cells differentiate, swell markedly, and form cigar-shaped cells (clostridial stages). The main fermentation strains are Clostridium acetobutylicum and C. beijerinckii. Figure 1. Yu-Sin Jang, Hee Moon Woo, Jung Ae Im, In Ho Kim, Sang Yup Lee, Metabolic engineering of Clostridium acetobutylicum for enhanced production of butyric acid, Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology, 10.1007/s00253-013-5161-x, 97, 21, (9355-9363), (2013). At higher pH va … The application of molecular biology techniques and genomics has led to certain genetic tools including cloning and expression vectors, and gene knockout systems. Chae Hun Ra, In Yung Sunwoo, Trung Hau Nguyen, Pailin Sukwang, Phunlap Sirisuk, Gwi-Taek Jeong, Sung-Koo Kim, Butanol and butyric acid production from Saccharina japonica by Clostridium acetobutylicum and Clostridium tyrobutyricum with adaptive evolution, Bioprocess and Biosystems Engineering, 10.1007/s00449-018-02063-9, (2019). During the exponential growth phase, vegetative cells of C. acetobutylicum are straight rods of 0.5–0.9 × 1.5–6 μm size and convert sugars or starch into acetic and butyric acids. Abstract: The anaerobe Clostridium acetobutylicum be-longs to the mostimportant industrially used bacteria. Sturme et al.207 constructed lamBD-overexpressing L. plantarum and analyzed its culture supernatant by liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry. nk, not known; B, biotin; pABS, 4-aminobenzoic acid. In Clostridium acetobutylicum, for example, exposure to low pH results in a decrease in the ratio of unsaturated to saturated fatty acids and an increase in cyclopropane fatty acid content. Nonetheless, a significant carbon food-print reduction (∼30 wt. The genome sequence of Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824, a noncellulolytic solvent-producing strain, predicts the production of various proteins with domains typical for cellulosomal subunits. Gene transfer technology using transformation (usually electroporation) or conjugation has been developed for C. perfringens, Clostridium acetobutylicum, Clostridium difficile, and C. botulinum, and genetic manipulation to understand virulence and to improve industrial processes is becoming increasingly available.
