Query: NC_012590:1950154 Corynebacterium aurimucosum ATCC 700975, complete genome Lineage: Corynebacterium aurimucosum; Corynebacterium; Corynebacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Corynebacterium aurimucosum ATCC 700975 (DSM 44827) was isolated from the human female urogenital tract. Corynebacterium aurimucosum has been isolated from a number of clinical samples including blood and infected bone, however it is not known what role this organism may have in the development of disease. This organism is also isolated from healthy female urogenital tract samples and is considered part of the normal microbial community.

General Information: This is the type strain of C. efficiens isolated by researchers of Ajinomoto food company from soils at Kanagawa, Japan in the late 1980's. The strain can grow and produce glutamate at temperatures above up to 45oC in contrast to C. glutamicum that is only efficient at around 30oC. This feature is very beneficial for industrial applications, because less heat removal is required in fermenters to be used for cultivation of these bacteria. Glutamate-producing bacterium. They may be found as members of the normal microflora of humans, where these bacteria find a suitable niche in virtually every anatomic site. This organism is a recently proposed new species of the genus capable of producing significant quantities of glutamic acid (glutamate), an important enhancer of taste in the food industry. It is currently used commercially to produce glutamate and other amino acids and compounds.
