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.

f3: Graphical circular map of the genome of B. coagulans strain 36D1. From outside to center: Genes on forward strand (color by COG categories), Genes on reverse strand (color by COG categories), pseudogenes, % G+C, GC skew.

Mentions: The genome consists of a 3,552,226 bp long chromosome with a 46.5% GC content (Table 3, Fig. 3). Of the 3,420 genes predicted, 3,306 were protein coding genes, and 114 encode RNAs. Among the 114 RNA genes, 10 each coded for 5S, 16S and 23S rRNAs and 84 can be accounted for tRNAs.
