Some taxa known to possess parts of the pathway include : Methylobacillus flagellatus , Methylobacterium extorquens AM1 , Methylobacterium organophilum , Methylococcus capsulatus , Methylomonas aminofaciens 77a , Methylophilus methylotrophus W3A1 , Methylosinus trichosporium , Paracoccus denitrificans
Expected Taxonomic Range: Bacteria
Note: This is a chimeric pathway, comprising reactions from multiple organisms, and typically will not occur in its entirety in a single organism. The taxa listed here are likely to catalyze only subsets of the reactions depicted in this pathway.
Methylotrophic bacteria are aerobic bacteria that utilize one-carbon compounds more reduced than formate as sources of carbon and energy, and assimilate formaldehyde as a major source of cellular carbon [Hanson96]. Methylotrophic bacteria utilize a variety of different one-carbon compounds including methane (see methane oxidation to methanol I), methanol, methylated amines, halomethanes and methylated compounds containing sulfur.
Please note: This superpathway integrates several base pathways that are found in different methylotrophic bacteria, for the purpose of displaying the different routes found in the biosphere in a single general diagram. There may be no single organism that possesses all of these pathways.
For more information about the pathways and enzymes shown in here, please see the individual pathways that make up this superpathway.
