Query: NC_015957:2678544 Streptomyces violaceusniger Tu 4113 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Streptomyces violaceusniger; Streptomyces; Streptomycetaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

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.

Subject: NC_014215:492855 Propionibacterium freudenreichii subsp. shermanii CIRM-BIA1,

Lineage: Propionibacterium freudenreichii; Propionibacterium; Propionibacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Propionibacterium freudenreichii is a member of the "dairy propionibacteria", commonly isolated from cheese and other dairy products. Propionibacterium freudenreichii subsp. shermanii, formerly Propionibacterium shermanii, is important for the development of flavor and the characteristic holes in Swiss cheese. In addition, Propionibacterium freudenreichii subsp. shermanii has been used as a probiotic for humans and animals and may have a role in preventing of colon cancer.
