Query: NC_007164:775000 Corynebacterium jeikeium K411, complete genome Lineage: Corynebacterium jeikeium; Corynebacterium; Corynebacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This strain was isolated from the axilla of a bone marrow transplant patient. A serious nocosomial pathogen. This bacterium is a lipophilic and multidrug resistant member of the human skin flora. This species has been associated with bacterial endocarditis following cardiac surgery. Other nocosomial infections involving this organism are associated with immunocompromised patients with malignancies, in-place medical devices, breaks in the skin barrier, and therapy with broad-spectrum antibiotics.

General Information: Isolation: Human gingival crevice; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 37C. The bacteria are nonmotile, Gram-positive rods that occur singly, in pairs, and in short chains; the central part of the cell may swell particularly when grown on solid medium. This strain is microaerotolerant to anaerobic and grows optimally at 37 degrees Celsius. Olsenella uli (formerly Lactobacillus uli) has been isolated from human gingival crevices and periodontal pockets.
