Lineage: Tsukamurella paurometabola; Tsukamurella; Tsukamurellaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolation: Cases of systemic infection, usually in association with other diseases; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Sludge, Soil. Tsukamurella paurometabola, formerly Corynebacterium paurometabolum, was isolated from from mycetomes and ovaries of bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) and has also been found in soil and sludge. This organism has been isolated from cases of systemic infection, usually in association with other diseases.

Subject: NC_008146:3349415 Mycobacterium sp. MCS, complete genome

Lineage: Mycobacterium; Mycobacterium; Mycobacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Mycobacterium MCS was isolated from soil in a wood preservative-contaminated land-treatment unit where remediation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) was occurring. This isolate mineralizes small- and large-ring PAHs, in contrast to other PAH-degrading microbes. Bioremediation of PAHs offers an attractive solution to pollution clean-up because it can occur on site and at relative little cost compared to alternatives. This isolate belongs to a fast-growing group of the mycobacterium genus that is defined as Gram-positive, acid-fast, pleomorphic, non-motile rods. Bioremediation of soils contaminated with wood preservatives containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) is desired because of their toxic, mutagenic, and carcinogenic properties. Creosote wood preservative–contaminated soils at the Champion International Superfund Site in Libby, Montana currently undergo bioremediation in a prepared-bed land treatment unit (LTU) process.
