Project description:Zhihengliuella sp. strain ISTPL4, a psychrotolerant bacterium, was isolated from brackish water of the high-altitude Pangong Lake in India. In this study, we report its draft genome sequence, which contains 3,529,629 bp with a G+C content of 69.84%. The genome is enriched in genes associated with cold adaptation and plant growth promotion.
Project description:Pelagibacterium halotolerans B2(T) is a marine halotolerant bacterium that was isolated from a seawater sample collected from the East China Sea. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of the type strain P. halotolerans B2(T), which consists of one chromosome (3,944,837 bp; 61.4% G+C content) and one plasmid (4,050 bp; 56.1% G+C content). This is the first complete genome of a member of the Pelagibacterium genus.
Project description:Corynebacterium halotolerans Chen et al. 2004 is a member of the genus Corynebacterium which contains Gram-positive bacteria with a high G+C content. C. halotolerans, isolated from a saline soil, belongs to the non-lipophilic, non-pathogenic corynebacteria. It displays a high tolerance to salts (up to 25%) and is related to the pathogenic corynebacteria C. freneyi and C. xerosis. As this is a type strain in a subgroup of Corynebacterium without complete genome sequences, this project describing the 3.14 Mbp long chromosome and the 86.2 kbp plasmid pCha1 with their 2,865 protein-coding and 65 RNA genes will aid the Genomic Encyclopedia ofBacteria andArchaea project.
Project description:We report the 3.087-Mb genome sequence of Imtechella halotolerans K1(T), isolated from an estuarine water sample collected from Kochi, Kerala, India. Strain K1 was recently reported as a novel genus of the family Flavobacteriaceae.
Project description:The draft genome sequence of an anaerobic fermenting bacterium, "Sphaerochaeta halotolerans" strain 4-11T, isolated from formation water of a low-temperature petroleum reservoir in Russia is presented. The genome is annotated to elucidate the taxonomic position of the strain 4-11T and to extend the public genome database.
Project description:The draft genome sequence of the green filamentous anoxygenic phototrophic (FAP) bacterium "Candidatus Viridilinea halotolerans" strain Chok-6, isolated from a cold saline sulfide-rich spring near Lake Chokrak, is presented. The genome sequence is annotated for elucidation of the taxonomic position of Chok-6 and to extend the public genome database.
Project description:Manganese (Mn) is toxic at higher concentrations requiring its removal before returning the wastewater to the environment. This article reported the Mn removal of two fungi strains isolated from mine wastewater. ITS rRNA region sequencing identified the fungi strains as Cladosporium halotolerans and Hypocrea jecorina.?Mn2+ removal assays were performed in Sabouraud broth with 50?mg?L-1?Mn2+ supplemented and bioleaching assays using MnO2 instead of MnSO4 at the same conditions. C. halotolerans removed 96 % of 50?mg?L-1?Mn2+ at two weeks without MnO2 bioleaching with 649.9?mg of biomass and H. jecorina removed about 50 % of Mn2+ in 21 days from initial 50?mg of Mn2+ L-1 with 316.8?mg of biomass. Extracellular laccases were present in C. halotolerans agar regardless of the Mn addition. Mn adsorbed was detected on C. halotolerans hyphae. Mn oxidation was positive to H. jecorina by reaction of its medium with Leucoberbelin blue.
Project description:This report presents the pathologic findings associated with disseminated infection due to Cladosporium halotolerans in a dog that was simultaneously infected with canine adenovirus-1 (CAdV-1) and canine parvovirus-2 (CPV-2). A 12-year-old, mixed breed dog, with a clinical history of neurological manifestations was submitted for routine autopsy due to poor prognosis. The principal pathologic findings were mycotic necrotizing nephritis, hepatitis, and splenitis with embolic dissemination to the brain resulting in mycotic necrotizing meningoencephalitis, ventriculitis, choroid plexitis, and obstructive hydrocephalus associated with intralesional and intravascular septate pigmented fungi. PCR and sequencing of the ITS region of fungi revealed that the intralesional fungal organisms had 82% nucleotide identity with members of the Cladosporium sphaerospermum complex of organisms. However, a PCR assay and sequencing of the beta tubulin gene confirmed that the organism identified in this dog had 100% nucleotide sequence identity with C. halotolerans. Using immunohistochemistry, intralesional antigens of CAdV-1 were identified within the epithelial cells of the liver and lungs; there was positive immunolabeling for CPV-2 antigens in degenerated cardiomyocytes. These findings confirmed the active participation of C. halotolerans in the development of disseminated cladosporiosis in this dog and represent a rare occurrence of concomitant infection with CAdV-1 and CPV-2.
