Query: NC_016948:1761020 Mycobacterium intracellulare MOTT-64 chromosome, complete genome

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

General Information: 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 intracellulare is a member of the Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC). These organisms cause tuberculosis in birds, and pulmonary and disseminated infections in immunocompromized humans. Mycobacterium intracellulare is also an important contributor to MAC-associated pulmonary infections in immunocompetent patients. Infection results in a characteristic pulmonary disease which requires expensive drug therapy for successful treatment. Mycobacterium intracellulare can also be isolated from the environment and, like other environmental organisms, is able to form and survive in biofilms.

Subject: NC_008699:857837 Nocardioides sp. JS614, complete genome

Lineage: Nocardioides; Nocardioides; Nocardioidaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This bacterium grows quickly and efficiently on media containing vinyl chloride and ethene. If starved of vinyl chloride for one day, it will not recover for more than 40 days. This strain was placed in the Nocardioides genus on the basis of 16S rRNA analysis.
