Query: NC_015067:2282000 Bifidobacterium longum subsp. longum JCM 1217, complete genome

Lineage: Bifidobacterium longum; Bifidobacterium; Bifidobacteriaceae; Bifidobacteriales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism is found in adult humans and formula fed infants as a normal component of gut flora. Representatives of this genus naturally colonize the human gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and are important for establishing and maintaining homeostasis of the intestinal ecosystem to allow for normal digestion. Their presence has been associated with beneficial health effects, such as prevention of diarrhea, amelioration of lactose intolerance, or immunomodulation. The stabilizing effect on GIT microflora is attributed to the capacity of bifidobacteria to produce bacteriocins, which are bacteriostatic agents with a broad spectrum of action, and to their pH-reducing activity.

Subject: NC_015428:823420 Lactobacillus buchneri NRRL B-30929 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Lactobacillus buchneri; Lactobacillus; Lactobacillaceae; Lactobacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Environment: Host, Intestinal microflora; Isolation: Fuel ethanol production facility; Temp: Mesophile. Lactobacillus buchneri is a lactic acid bacillus commonly isolated from dairy and plant products as well as the human oral cavity. This organism is heterofermentative, producing acetic and lactic acid. It also has potential for use as a biofuel producing agent.
