General Information: Verrucosispora sp. AB-18-032 is a filamentous bacterium belonging in the Micromonosporaceae family of the Actinobacteria. It produces abyssomicin (inhibitor of para-aminobenzoic acid biosynthesis which is an precursor of folic acid) and proximicin (furan-containing peptide with weak antibiotic effect and strong antitumor properties).

Subject: NC_011883:1182000 Desulfovibrio desulfuricans subsp. desulfuricans str. ATCC 27774,

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

General Information: Desulfovibrio desulfuricans subsp. desulfuricans str. ATCC 27774 was isolated from the rumen of a sheep. D. desulfuricans reduces sulfate to sulfide found in soil, freshwater, saltwater and the intestinal tract of animals. This organism grows anaerobically and utilizes a wide variety of electron acceptors, including sulfate, sulfur, nitrate, and nitrite, as well as others. The nitrate reduction pathway is not expressed while sulfate is available. Alternatively, the sulfate reduction pathway is constitutively expressed when the cells are growing with nitrate reduction. A number of toxic metals are reduced, including uranium (VI), chromium (VI) and iron (III), making this organism of interest as bioremediator. Metal corrosion, a problem that is partly the result of the collective activity of this bacterium, results in billions of dollars in losses each year to the petroleum industry. This organism is responsible for the production of poisonous hydrogen sulfide gas in marine sediments and in terrestrial environments such as drilling sites for petroleum products.
