Query: NC_015711:6522808 Myxococcus fulvus HW-1 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Myxococcus fulvus; Myxococcus; Myxococcaceae; Myxococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism, like other myxobacteria, undergoes a complex development and differentiation pathway. When cell density increases, the organism switches to "social motility" where aggregates of cells can gather together into masses termed fruiting bodies that may consist of up to 100 000 cells. The motility system is not dependent on flagella like most bacteria, but instead relies on twitching pili: short extracellular appendages that may function analogously to oars in a rowboat. The myxobacteria have proved to be a rich source of novel natural products. Myxococcus fulvus produces a number of antibacterial, antifungal and cytotoxic substances which are being studies for therapeutic applications.

General Information: Oil pollution has become a global issue because of its severe ecological impact and destruction. Bioremediation is proved to be an effective process to restore the oil polluted environments. Bacteria from oil contaminated environment always have the abilities for degradation of hydrocarbons and are thought to be useful in bioremediation of oil pollution. Amycolicicoccus subflavus DQS-9A1T, an actinomycete, is a type strain of newly published novel species in the novel genus Amycolicicoccus, isolated from the crude oil-polluted saline soil in China. The complete genome sequence of Amycolicicoccus subflavus DQS-9A1 will provide new strategies for bioremediation of oil contaminated environment.
