Ancalomicrobium Cultivation

Ancalomicrobium is a unicellular Gram-negative bacterium. The bacterium can project from 2 to 8 protrusions from the cell. At maturity the protrusions reach about 3μm long, which is about 3 times the diameter of the cell. The protrusions are occasionally bifurcated, and the bifurcated position along the appendage is variable. The cells of Ancalomicrobium reproduce by budding. Buds are formed directly from a position on the mother cell, not from protrusions at any time. Transverse division occurs when the shoot has reached substantially the same size as the parent cell. Cells are immobile and have no anchors. Bubbles were visible in some cells.

Ancalomicrobium is an organic chemotroph and is facultatively anaerobic. It can be separated in natural water.

Ancalomicrobium Culture Service

Creative Biogene offers customizable Ancalomicrobium strain culture services. This service can help you obtain Ancalomicrobium cultures for subsequent scientific research. This service allows you to skip the complicated and tedious groping of culture conditions, which helps to speed up research on this strain.

Colonies of Ancalomicrobium adetum are opaque white. The colonies are rounded protrusions with intact edges. Ancalomicrobium adetum can utilize ammonium as the sole nitrogen source. Organic energy and carbon sources as well as vitamins (pantothenic acid is absolutely necessary) are also necessary for the growth of Ancalomicrobium adetum. The bacteria can ferment glucose, but cannot reduce nitrate. Bacterial cells have contact enzymes. The optimum growth temperature for Ancalomicrobium adetum ranges from 9-39°C. Grows faster and yields higher yields above 30°C, but grows good at 30°C, indicating similar conditions to natural habitats. The growth pH range was less than 6.3 or greater than 7.5; the optimum growth pH was 7.0.
