Query: NC_014329:1298644 Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis FRC41 chromosome, complete

Lineage: Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis; Corynebacterium; Corynebacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Strain FRC41 was isolated from the inguinal lymph node of a 12-year-old girl in France with necrotizing lymphadenitis. Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis, an important animal pathogen, is the etiological agent of a disease that is commonly called caseous lymphadenitis (CLA) or cheesy gland. This disease is found in all the world's major sheep and goat production areas, causing significant economic losses worldwide, mainly due to the reduction of wool, meat and milk yields, decreased reproductive efficiencies of affected animals and condemnation of carcasses and skins in abattoirs. In some cases, the infection produces few obvious clinical signs in the animal, remaining unrecognized until a post-mortem examination has been carried out and, making it difficult to obtain definitive data about prevalence of the disease.

Subject: NC_008596:2873675 Mycobacterium smegmatis str. MC2 155, complete genome

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

General Information: Causes opportunistic infections. This genus comprises a number of Gram-positive, acid-fast, rod-shaped aerobic bacteria and is the only member of the family Mycobacteriaceae within the order Actinomycetales. Like other closely related Actinomycetales, such as Nocardia and Corynebacterium, mycobacteria have unusually high genomic DNA GC content and are capable of producing mycolic acids as major components of their cell wall. Mycobacterium smegmatis was initially isolated from human smegma. It is associated with soft tissue lesions following trauma or surgery. It is also reported as a possible factor in penile carcinogenesis.
