According to Bergey's manual of systematic bacteriology (second edition), this genus currently comprises ten species: Methanosarcina barkeri
Cloning, functional organization, transcript studies, and phylogenetic analysis of the complete nitrogenase structural genes (nifHDK2) and associated genes in the archaeon Methanosarcina barkeri
The four species of methanogens Mickol studied were: Methanothermobacter wolfeii, Methanosarcina barkeri
, Methanobacterium formicicum, Methanococcus maripaludis.
2]O on methanogenesis by Methanosarcina barkeri
and Methanobacterium bryantii.
Conversion of Cellulose to Methane and Carbon Dioxide by Triculture of Acetivibrio cellulolyticus, Desulfovibrio sp, and Methanosarcina barkeri
Revival of ammonia inhibited cultures of Methanobacterium bryantii and Methanosarcina barkeri
The authors subsequently reported that when Methanosarcina barkeri
was cultured with Neocallimastix strain PN1 and Methanobrevibacter sp.
Methanobrevibacter ruminantium, Methanomicrobium mobile, Methanosarcina mazei, Methanosarcina barkeri
and Methanobacterium formicicum have been isolated from the rumen by cultivation (Mitsumori et al.
