Methanogen - Comparative Genomics and Molecular Signatures
... led to the identification of 31 signature proteins which are specific for the methanogens (also known as Methanoarchaeota) ... to methanogenesis, and they could serve as potential molecular markers for the methanogens ... Additionally, 10 proteins found in all methanogens which are shared by Archaeoglobus, suggest that these two groups are related ...
Methanosarcina
... are the only known anaerobic methanogens to produce methane using all three known metabolic pathways for methanogenesis ... Most methanogens make methane from carbon dioxide and hydrogen gas ...

Rumen - Microbes in The Reticulorumen
... Rumen Archaea, approximately 3% of total microbes, are mostly autotrophic methanogens and produce methane through anaerobic respiration ... protozoa and fungi is used by these methanogens to reduce carbon dioxide to methane ... The maintenance of low partial pressure of hydrogen by methanogens is essential for proper functioning of the rumen ...
Microbial Metabolism - Special Metabolic Properties - Methylotrophy
... It is carried out by methanogens, strictly anaerobic Archaea such as Methanococcus, Methanocaldococcus, Methanobacterium, Methanothermus, Methanosarcina, Methanosaeta and Methanopyrus ... Some methanogens reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) to methane (CH4) using electrons (most often) from hydrogen gas (H2) chemolithoautotrophically ... These methanogens can often be found in environments containing fermentative organisms ...
