ABSTRACT
Bacillus coagulans is a ubiquitous soil bacterium that grows at 50-55 °C and pH 5.0 and ferments various sugars that constitute plant biomass to L (+)-lactic acid. The ability of this sporogenic lactic acid bacterium to grow at 50-55 °C and pH 5.0 makes this organism an attractive microbial biocatalyst for production of optically pure lactic acid at industrial scale not only from glucose derived from cellulose but also from xylose, a major constituent of hemicellulose. This bacterium is also considered as a potential probiotic. Complete genome sequence of a representative strain, B. coagulans strain 36D1, is presented and discussed.

f2: Unrooted phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA(DNA) of B. coagulans strain 36D1 and Bacillus spp. and Lactobacillus spp.

Mentions: The B. coagulans group is polydisperse [12] and among the Bacillus spp., strain 36D1 is phylogenetically close to B. halodurans based on 16S rRNA(DNA) sequences (Fig. 2). Although B. coagulans is similar to lactic acid bacteria in its ability to grow anaerobically and ferment sugars to lactic acid, it is distinct from the lactic acid bacteria based on 16S rRNA(DNA) sequence similarity.
