Query: NC_009953:5733211 Salinispora arenicola CNS-205 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Salinispora arenicola; Salinispora; Micromonosporaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Found in marine sediment, this organism produces cancer-fighting compounds. Salinispora strains are commonly isolated from tropical marine sediment. Members of this genus produce branched hyphae and require media which contain seawater or sodium. A survey of the cultured species identified over 90 isolates which produce compounds that inhibited cancer cells. These organisms may be a new source of bioactive chemicals for use in disease and cancer treatments. Salinispora arenicola produces the bioactive compounds staurosporine and rifamycin which may be useful in the treatment of cancer.

Subject: NC_014218:1948165 Arcanobacterium haemolyticum DSM 20595 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Arcanobacterium haemolyticum; Arcanobacterium; Actinomycetaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 37C; Habitat: Blood, Host. Non-motile, non-sporulating, rod-shaped facultative anaerobe. Arcanobacterium haemolyticum originally Corynebacterium was identified as the causative agent for pharyngitis in 1946. This organism has also been implicated in cases of sepsis, osteomyelitis and skin infections.
