Project description:Here we report the complete genome sequence of Pseudomonas stutzeri strain CGMCC 1.1803 (equivalent to ATCC 17588), the type strain of P. stutzeri, which encodes 4,138 open reading frames on a 4,547,930-bp circular chromosome. The CGMCC 1.1803 genome contains genes involved in denitrification, benzoate/catechol degradation, chemotaxis, and other functions.
Project description:Most eukaryotic oleaginous species are yeasts and among them the basidiomycete red yeast, Rhodotorula (Rhodosporidium) toruloides (Pucciniomycotina) is known to produce high quantities of lipids when grown in nitrogen-limiting media, and has potential for biodiesel production. The genome of the CGMCC 2.1609 strain of this oleaginous red yeast was sequenced using a hybrid of Roche 454 and Illumina technology generating 13 × coverage. The de novo assembly was carried out using MIRA and scaffolded using MAQ and BAMBUS. The sequencing and assembly resulted in 365 scaffolds with total genome size of 33.4 Mb. The complete genome sequence of this strain was deposited in GenBank and the accession number is LKER00000000. The annotation is available on Figshare (doi:10.6084/m9.figshare.4754251).
Project description:Bacillus subtilis CGMCC 12426 is an efficient producer of poly-?-glutamate with regular stereochemistry. Here, the complete genome sequence of B. subtilis CGMCC 12426 is presented, which may facilitate the design of rational strategies for further strain improvements with industrial potential.
Project description:The intensive and extensive application of imidacloprid in agriculture has resulted in water pollution and risks to aquatic invertebrates. However, pure bacteria remediation of imidacloprid in surface water environments has not been studied. Here, we isolated an imidacloprid-degrading bacterium from a water environment, examined its imidacloprid degradation in pure culture and surface water, sequenced its genome, and compared its Clusters of Orthologous Groups (COG) protein categorization with that for another imidacloprid-degrading bacterium. The isolate was an obligate oligotrophic bacterium, Hymenobacter latericoloratus CGMCC 16346, which degraded imidacloprid via hydroxylation by co-metabolism in pure culture. Resting cells degraded 64.4% of 100 mg/L imidacloprid in 6 days in the presence of co-substrate maltose, and growing culture degraded 40.8% of imidacloprid in 10 days. H. latericoloratus CGMCC 16346 degraded imidacloprid in surface water without co-substrate supplementation and retained imidacloprid-degrading activity after 30 days. The half-life of imidacloprid in surface water was decreased from 173.3 days in the control to 57.8 days by CGMCC 16346 inoculation. Genome sequencing and COG analysis indicated that carbohydrate metabolism and transport, cell wall/membrane biogenesis, and defense mechanisms are enriched in H. latericoloratus CGMCC 16346 compared with the copiotrophic imidacloprid-degrading Pseudoxanthomonas indica CGMCC 6648, indicating that H. latericoloratus CGMCC 16346 is adapted to live in oligotrophic water environments and biofilms. H. latericoloratus CGMCC 16346 is a promising bioremediation agent for elimination of imidacloprid contamination from surface water.
Project description:Here, we report the 4.1-Mb draft genome sequence of Bacillus subtilis subsp. natto strain CGMCC 2108, a high producer of poly-?-glutamic acid (?-PGA). This sequence will provide further help for the biosynthesis of ?-PGA and will greatly facilitate research efforts in metabolic engineering of B. subtilis subsp. natto strain CGMCC 2108.
Project description:Acidilobus saccharovorans is an anaerobic, organotrophic, thermoacidophilic crenarchaeon isolated from a terrestrial hot spring. We report the complete genome sequence of A. saccharovorans, which has permitted the prediction of genes for Embden-Meyerhof and Entner-Doudoroff pathways and genes associated with the oxidative tricarboxylic acid cycle. The electron transfer chain is branched with two sites of proton translocation and is linked to the reduction of elemental sulfur and thiosulfate. The genomic data suggest an important role of the order Acidilobales in thermoacidophilic ecosystems whereby its members can perform a complete oxidation of organic substrates, closing the anaerobic carbon cycle.
Project description:Lactobacillus reuteri strain LR CGMCC 11154, which was isolated from the feces of healthy weaned piglets, was experimentally proven to be a probiotic bacterium. The whole genome was sequenced on the Illumina Miseq platform to obtain the draft genome, which consists of 120 contigs totaling 1.9 Mbp encoding 1,854 genes.
Project description:Genome sequences of marine streptomycetes are valuable for the discovery of useful enzymes and bioactive compounds by genome mining. However, publicly available complete genome sequences of marine streptomycetes are still limited. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of a marine streptomycete Streptomyces sp. S063 CGMCC 14582. Species delineation based on the pairwise digital DNA-DNA hybridization and genome comparison ANI (average nucleotide identity) value showed that Streptomyces sp. S063 CGMCC 14582 possesses a unique genome that is clearly different from all of the other available genomes. Bioactivity tests showed that Streptomyces sp. S063 CGMCC 14582 produces metabolites with anti-complement activities, which are useful for treatment of numerous diseases that arise from inappropriate activation of the human complement system. Analysis of the genome reveals no biosynthetic gene cluster (BGC) which shows even low similarity to that of the known anti-complement agents was detected in the genome, indicating that Streptomyces sp. S063 CGMCC 14582 may produce novel anti-complement agents of microbial origin. Four BGCs which are potentially involved in biosynthesis of non-ribosomal peptides were disrupted, but no decrease of anti-complement activities was observed, suggesting that these four BGCs are not involved in biosynthesis of the anti-complement agents. In addition, LC-MS/MS analysis and subsequent alignment through the Global Natural Products Social Molecular Networking (GNPS) platform led to the detection of novel peptides produced by the strain. Streptomyces sp. S063 CGMCC 14582 grows rapidly and is salt tolerant, which benefits efficient secondary metabolite production via seawater-based fermentation. Our results indicate that Streptomyces sp. S063 has great potential to produce novel bioactive compounds, and also is a good host for heterologous production of useful secondary metabolites for drug discovery.
Project description:Laccases are a class of multi-copper oxidases with important industrial values. A thermotolerant laccase produced by a basidiomycete fungal strain Cerrena unicolor CGMCC 5.1011 was studied. With glycerin and peptone as the carbon and nitrogen sources, respectively, a maximal laccase activity of 121.7 U/mL was attained after cultivation in the shaking flask for 15 days. Transcriptomics analysis revealed an expressed laccase gene family of 12 members in C. unicolor strain CGMCC 5.1011, and the gene and cDNA sequences were cloned. A glycosylated laccase was purified from the fermentation broth of Cerrena unicolor CGMCC 5.1011 and corresponded to Lac2 based on MALDI-TOF MS/MS identification. Lac2 was stable at pH 5.0 and above, and was resistant to organic solvents. Lac2 displayed remarkable thermostability, with half-life time of 1.67 h at 70 ºC. Consistently, Lac2 was able to completely decolorize malachite green (MG) at high temperatures, whereas Lac7 from Cerrena sp. HYB07 resulted in accumulation of colored MG transformation intermediates. Molecular dynamics simulation of Lac2 was conducted, and possible mechanisms underlying Lac2 thermostability were discussed. The robustness of C. unicolor CGMCC 5.1011 laccase would not only be useful for industrial applications, but also provide a template for future work to develop thermostable laccases.
