Query: NC_015683:1432995 Corynebacterium ulcerans BR-AD22 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Corynebacterium ulcerans; Corynebacterium; Corynebacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: They may be found as members of the normal microflora of humans, where these bacteria find a suitable niche in virtually every anatomic site. Corynebacterium ulcerans is commonly associated with dairy animals and unpasturized dairy products. This organism has been implicated in bovine mastitis and can cause skin infections and a diptheria-like disease in humans.

General Information: Strain FRC41 was isolated from the inguinal lymph node of a 12-year-old girl in France with necrotizing lymphadenitis. Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis, an important animal pathogen, is the etiological agent of a disease that is commonly called caseous lymphadenitis (CLA) or cheesy gland. This disease is found in all the world's major sheep and goat production areas, causing significant economic losses worldwide, mainly due to the reduction of wool, meat and milk yields, decreased reproductive efficiencies of affected animals and condemnation of carcasses and skins in abattoirs. In some cases, the infection produces few obvious clinical signs in the animal, remaining unrecognized until a post-mortem examination has been carried out and, making it difficult to obtain definitive data about prevalence of the disease.
