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: Environment: Soil, Terrestrial; Temp: Mesophile. Streptomyces violaceusniger 16S rRNA gene clade form a gray aerial spore mass and a grayish-yellow substrate mycelium on oatmeal agar, and produce aerial hyphae that differentiate into spiral chains of rugose ornamented spores. The characteristic earthy smell of freshly plowed soil is actually attributed to the aromatic terpenoid geosmin produced by species of Streptomyces. There are currently 364 known species of this genus, many of which are the most important industrial producers of antibiotics and other secondary metabolites of antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antitumor nature, as well as immunosuppressants, antihypercholesterolemics, etc. Streptomycetes are crucial in the soil environment because their diverse metabolism allows them to degrade the insoluble remains of other organisms, including recalcitrant compounds such as lignocelluloses and chitin.
