General Information: Representatives of this genus naturally colonize the human gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and are important for establishing and maintaining homeostasis of the intestinal ecosystem to allow for normal digestion. Their presence has been associated with beneficial health effects, such as prevention of diarrhea, amelioration of lactose intolerance, or immunomodulation. The stabilizing effect on GIT microflora is attributed to the capacity of bifidobacteria to produce bacteriocins, which are bacteriostatic agents with a broad spectrum of action, and to their pH-reducing activity. Most of the ~30 known species of bifidobacteria have been isolated from the mammalian GIT, and some from the vaginal and oral cavity. All are obligate anaerobes belonging to the Actinomycetales, branch of Gram-positive bacteria with high GC content that also includes Corynebacteria, Mycobacteria, and Streptomycetes. This organism is found in adult humans and formula fed infants as a normal component of gut flora.

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.
