Query: NC_014039:334892 Propionibacterium acnes SK137 chromosome, complete genome

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

General Information: 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.

Subject: NC_007519:3355768 Desulfovibrio alaskensis G20 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Desulfovibrio alaskensis; Desulfovibrio; Desulfovibrionaceae; Desulfovibrionales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism is a spontaneous nalidixic acid-resistant derivative of a wild-type strain (G100A) that was isolated from an oil well corrosion site. It has been cured of a 2.3 Kb cryptic plasmid as well. This organism is one of the few extensively studied sulfate-reducing bacteria.
