Project description:Corynebacterium callunae DSM 20147(T) is a member of the genus Corynebacterium which contains Gram-positive and non-spore forming bacteria with a high G?+?C content. C. callunae was isolated during a screening for l-glutamic acid producing bacteria and belongs to the aerobic and non-haemolytic corynebacteria. As this is a type strain in a subgroup of industrial relevant bacteria for many of which there are also complete genome sequence available, knowledge of the complete genome sequence might enable genome comparisons to identify production relevant genetic loci. This project, describing the 2.84 Mbp long chromosome and the two plasmids, pCC1 (4.11 kbp) and pCC2 (85.02 kbp), with their 2,647 protein-coding and 82 RNA genes, will aid the Genomic Encyclopedia of Bacteria and Archaea project.
Project description:Corynebacterium argentoratense is part of the human skin microbiota and is occasionally detected in the upper respiratory tract of patients suffering from tonsillitis. The complete DNA sequence of the type strain DSM 44202 comprises 2,031,902 bp, yielding the smallest genome sequenced thus far for a corynebacterium associated with humans.
Project description:The complete genome sequence of Corynebacterium epidermidicanis DSM 45586 comprises 2,692,072 bp with 58.06% G+C content. The annotation revealed 2,466 protein-coding regions, including genes for surface-anchored proteins with Cna B-type or bacterial Ig-like domains and for an adhesive SpaABC-type pilus with similarity to fimbrial subunits of Corynebacterium resistens DSM 45100.
Project description:The complete genome of Corynebacterium mustelae DSM 45274 comprises 3,474,226 bp and 3,188 genes. Prominent niche and virulence factors are SpaBCA- and SpaDEF-type pili with similarity to pilus proteins of Corynebacterium resistens and Corynebacterium urealyticum and an immunomodulatory EndoS-like endoglycosidase probably catalyzing the removal of distinct glycans from IgG antibodies.
Project description:The complete genome sequence of the type strain Corynebacterium kutscheri DSM 20755 comprises 2,354,065 bp and 2,047 protein-coding genes. The mean G+C content of the chromosomal DNA is 46.46%, which is the lowest value detected so far in a member of the genus Corynebacterium.
Project description:Corynebacterium ulceribovis strain IMMIB L-1395(T) (= DSM 45146(T)) is an aerobic to facultative anaerobic, Gram-positive, non-spore-forming, non-motile rod-shaped bacterium that was isolated from the skin of the udder of a cow, in Schleswig Holstein, Germany. The cell wall of C. ulceribovis contains corynemycolic acids. The cellular fatty acids are those described for the genus Corynebacterium, but tuberculostearic acid is not present. Here we describe the features of C. ulceribovis strain IMMIB L-1395(T), together with genome sequence information and its annotation. The 2,300,451 bp long genome containing 2,104 protein-coding genes and 54 RNA-encoding genes and is part of the Genomic Encyclopedia of Type Strains, Phase I: the one thousand microbial genomes (KMG) project.
Project description:The complete genome sequence of the type strain Corynebacterium testudinoris DSM 44614 from the mouth of a tortoise comprises 2,721,226 bp with a mean G+C content of 63.14%. The automatic annotation of the genome sequence revealed 4 rRNA operons, 51 tRNA genes, 7 other RNA genes, and 2,561 protein-coding regions.
Project description:Corynebacterium urealyticum is a common skin colonizer with potent urease activity. It is clinically recognized as an opportunistic pathogen causing urinary tract infections. The annotated genome sequence of strain DSM 7111, isolated from the urine of a young boy with an ectopic kidney, provides new insights into the pathomechanisms of this bacterium.
Project description:Corynebacterium singulare DSM 44357 is a urease-positive microorganism isolated from human semen. The complete genome sequence of C. singulare DSM 44357 comprises 2,830,519 bp with a mean G+C content of 60.12% and 2,581 protein-coding genes. The deduced antibiotic resistance pattern of this strain includes macrolides, lincosamides, aminoglycosides, chloramphenicol, and tetracyline.
Project description:Candida auris is an invasive and multidrug-resistant ascomycetous yeast that is under global surveillance. All clinical cases of C. auris infection diagnosed from 1997 to 2019 in Japan were non-invasive and sporadic otitis media cases. In the present study, we performed whole-genome sequencing of seven C. auris strains isolated from patients with otitis media in Japan, all of which belonged to clade II. Comparative genome analysis using the high-quality draft genome sequences JCM 15448T revealed that single nucleotide variations (SNVs), clade-specific accessory genes, and copy number variations (CNVs) were identified in each C. auris clade. A total of 61 genes involved in cell wall and stress response-related functions was absent in clade II, and the pattern of conserved CNVs in each clade was more stable in clade II than in other clades. Our data suggest that the genomic structural diversity is stable in C. auris isolated from each biogeographic location, and Japanese strains isolated from patients with otitis media might belong to an ancestral type of C. auris. One Japanese strain, TWCC 58362, with reduced susceptibility to fluconazole, exhibited no mutation in ergosterol biosynthesis-related genes (ERG). However, TWCC 58362-specific variations, including SNVs, indels, and CNVs were detected, suggesting that gene duplication events in C. auris might contribute to antifungal drug resistance. Taken together, we demonstrated that genomic structural variations in C. auris could correlate to geographical dissemination, epidemiology, lesions in the host, and antifungal resistance.
