A gram-negative cellulolytic bacterium involved in the production of high molecular weight cellulolytic complexes, presence of cell surface protuberance organelles and cross-reactivity of scaffolding-like glycoprotein.
Bacteroides cellulosolvens is a cellulolytic mesophilic species of Bacteriodes that able to ferment cellulose and cellobiose which produces carbon dioxide, acetic acid, hydrogen, ethanol and lactic acid. Most of its cellulases linked to the extracellular fractions and cell-associated complexes.
Bacteroides cellulosolvens isolated from sewage sludge and contain cellulosome-like oligosaccharides entity similar to C. thermocellum.
Bacteroides cellulosolvens gene encodes for 752 residue protein that consists of 23 standard residue signal peptide located at the N-terminus. It also comprise a total of 110 enzyme molecules at the highest level of amplification for cellulosomal system.
