Lineage: Propionibacterium acnes; Propionibacterium; Propionibacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolated from human skin. Acne causing bacterium. This bacterium is the most common gram-positive, non-spore forming, anaerobic rod encountered in clinical specimens. The causative agent of acne, it typically grows as an obligate anaerobe. Some strains are aerotolerant, but still show better growth as an anaerobe. It has the ability to produce propionic acid, as its name suggests. It also has the ability to produce catalase along with indole, nitrate, or both indole and nitrate. Propionibacterium resembles Corynebacterium in morphology and arrangement, but is non-toxigenic.It is a common resident of the pilosebaceous (hair follicle) glands of the human skin. The bacteria release lipases to digest a surplus of the skin oil, sebum, that has been produced. The combination of digestive products (fatty acids) and bacterial antigens stimulates an intense local inflammation that bursts the hair follicle. Since acne is caused in part from an infection, it can be suppressed with topical and oral antibiotics such as clindamycin, erythromycin, or tetracycline. Some other forms of therapy include chemicals that enhance skin removal or slow the production of sebum.

Subject: NC_009943:748788 Candidatus Desulfococcus oleovorans Hxd3, complete genome

Lineage: Desulfococcus oleovorans; Desulfococcus; Desulfobacteraceae; Desulfobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: An alkane-degrading sulfate-reducing Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the saline water phase of an oil-water separator from a northern German oil field. Desulfococcus oleovorans, originally designated Desulfobacterium oleovorans, was isolated using hexadecane as a carbon source and has been used to determine the mechanism of anaerobic hydrocarbon degradation.
