General Information: Isolated from human skin. Acne causing bacterium. This bacterium is the most common gram-positive, non-spore forming, anaerobic rod encountered in clinical specimens. The causative agent of acne, it typically grows as an obligate anaerobe. Some strains are aerotolerant, but still show better growth as an anaerobe. It has the ability to produce propionic acid, as its name suggests. It also has the ability to produce catalase along with indole, nitrate, or both indole and nitrate. Propionibacterium resembles Corynebacterium in morphology and arrangement, but is non-toxigenic.It is a common resident of the pilosebaceous (hair follicle) glands of the human skin. The bacteria release lipases to digest a surplus of the skin oil, sebum, that has been produced. The combination of digestive products (fatty acids) and bacterial antigens stimulates an intense local inflammation that bursts the hair follicle. Since acne is caused in part from an infection, it can be suppressed with topical and oral antibiotics such as clindamycin, erythromycin, or tetracycline. Some other forms of therapy include chemicals that enhance skin removal or slow the production of sebum.

Subject: NC_015564:4727630 Amycolicicoccus subflavus DQS3-9A1 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Amycolicicoccus subflavus; Amycolicicoccus; Mycobacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

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.
