Query: NC_012207:477500 Mycobacterium bovis BCG str. Tokyo 172, complete genome

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

General Information: Used for the production of BCG vaccine in Japan. Causative agent of classic bovine tuberculosis. This bacterium is the causative agent of classic bovine tuberculosis, but it can also cause the disease in humans, especially if contaminated milk is consumed without prior pasteurization. The Mycobacterium bovis complex is a diverse group of species, serovars and morphotypes that cause tuberculosis-like diseases in animals and humans. Pasteurization of milk is a major preventitive factor in transmission of bovine tuberculosis to humans. However, spreading the disease through milk and dairy products is still a concern in underdeveloped countries where pasteurization is not practiced. The pathology in cows is similar to the pathology of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in humans, with pulmonary TB leading to chronic debilitation, coughing, and further systemic spread to other organs. In addition, 1 to 2% of infected cows develop mycobacterial mastitis that results in shedding of the bacteria into the milk.

Subject: NC_012522:2031786 Rhodococcus opacus B4, complete genome

Lineage: Rhodococcus opacus; Rhodococcus; Nocardiaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Strain B4 was isolated from a soil sample taken from the roadside in Hiroshima, Japan. It is a benzene-tolerant, Gram-postitive, non-motile, strictly aerobic rod, able to use many organic compound as its sole source of carbon and energy. Rhodococcus opacus is an aerobic, Gram-positive bacterium that can accumulate triacylglycerols (TAGs).
