ABSTRACT
Oligotropha carboxidovorans OM5 T. (DSM 1227, ATCC 49405) is a chemolithoautotrophic bacterium able to utilize CO and H(2) to derive energy for fixation of CO(2). Thus, it is capable of growth using syngas, which is a mixture of varying amounts of CO and H(2) generated by organic waste gasification. O. carboxidovorans is capable also of heterotrophic growth in standard bacteriologic media. Here we characterize how the O. carboxidovorans proteome adapts to different lifestyles of chemolithoautotrophy and heterotrophy. Fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) analysis of O. carboxidovorans grown with acetate or with syngas showed that the bacterium changes membrane fatty acid composition. Quantitative shotgun proteomic analysis of O. carboxidovorans grown in the presence of acetate and syngas showed production of proteins encoded on the megaplasmid for assimilating CO and H(2) as well as proteins encoded on the chromosome that might have contributed to fatty acid and acetate metabolism. We found that adaptation to chemolithoautotrophic growth involved adaptations in cell envelope, oxidative homeostasis, and metabolic pathways such as glyoxylate shunt and amino acid/cofactor biosynthetic enzymes.

The COG categories were unknown for plasmid encoded proteins and 518 chromosomal proteins.

Mentions: In all, 1317 proteins were identified in TSB-grown bacteria, 1091 in acetate-grown, and 634 in syngas-grown. Although O. carboxidovorans metabolism is likely to be quite different when it grows in nutrient rich TSB medium versus growth in minimal medium with acetate as a sole carbon source, there were 668 proteins expressed during both of these heterotrophic growth conditions. By contrast, there were many fewer proteins shared between growth in syngas and the other two growth conditions. Of the total 1977 proteins identified, only 190 were present in all three growth conditions, demonstrating the greater degree of change in the proteome required when O. carboxidovorans adapts from heterotrophy to chemolithoautotrophy. Figure 2 shows the distribution of identified proteins in various COG categories. Figure 3 shows a metabolic network of various proteins that interconnect these COG categories and also highlights a few that were important to this study.
