Project description:Enterobacter cancerogenus is widely distributed in nature and is generally recovered from environmental or vegetal sources. In some cases, it has also been associated with human infections. In this study, the complete genomic sequence of virulent E. cancerogenus bacteriophage Enc34 was determined. The Enc34 genome is 60,364 bp in length and contains 80 open reading frames. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a bacteriophage infecting E. cancerogenus.
Project description:We herein describe a case of trauma-related wound infection with a subcutaneous abscess caused by both Enterobacter cancerogenus and Aeromonas hydrophila. An 89-year-old Japanese man was admitted to our hospital because of an injury that he had suffered in a car accident. The right dorsal region of the foot around the wound was reddish and swelling. The pus culture on his right foot grew E. cancerogenus and A. hydrophila. The patient was successfully treated with a 10-day course of meropenem and a 25-day course of levofloxacin. E. cancerogenus can therefore be a causative pathogen in skin and soft tissue infections among trauma patients.
Project description:Enterobacter cancerogenus CR-Eb1 and Enterococcus sp. CR-Ec1 were isolated from the larval gut of Galleria mellonella, the greater wax moth. Here, we report the completed and annotated genome sequences of insect gut-dwelling bacteria.
