Project description:A fast-growing, non-chromogenic, acid-fast-staining bacterium (DL90<sup>T</sup>) was isolated from a peat bog in northern Minnesota. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity (99.8 % identity with <i>Mycolicibacterium septicum</i> and 98 % with <i>Mycolicibacterium peregrinum</i>) and chemotaxonomic data (fatty acid content), strain DL90<sup>T</sup> represents a member of the genus <i>Mycolicibacterium</i>. Physiological tests (growth curves, biofilm formation, antibiotic sensitivity, colony morphologies and heat tolerance) and biochemical analysis (arylsulfatase activity and fatty acid profiles) distinguish DL90<sup>T</sup> from its closest relative <i>M. septicum</i>. Phylogenomic reconstruction of the '<i>Fortuitium-Vaccae</i>' clade, digital DNA-DNA hybridization (DDH) values of 61 %, and average nucleotide identity (ANI) values of approximately 95 % indicate that DL90<sup>T</sup> is likely to be diverged from <i>M. septicum</i>. Thus, we propose that DL90<sup>T</sup> represents a novel species, given the name <i>Mycolicibacterium nivoides</i> with the type strain being isolate DL90<sup>T</sup> (=JCM 32796<sup>T</sup>=NCCB 100660<sup>T</sup>).
Project description:Mycobacterium peregrinum is a nonpigmented rapid growing nontuberculosis species belonging to the Mycobacterium fortuitum group. The draft genome of M. peregrinum type I CSUR P2098 comprises 7,109,836 bp exhibiting a 66.23% G+C content, 6,894 protein-coding genes, and 100 predicted RNA genes. Its genome analysis suggests this species differs from Mycobacterium senegalense.
Project description:Mycolicibacterium litorale is a rapidly growing mycobacterial organism with unknown pathogenic features. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of Mycolicibacterium sp. strain NIID-NTM18, which was isolated from a cardiac implantable electronic device infection and which is most similar to M. litorale This sequence will provide essential information for future studies of the pathogenicity of these mycobacteria.
Project description:Here, we report the draft whole-genome sequence of an anthracene-degrading bacterium, Mycolicibacterium frederiksbergense strain LB501T, using the PacBio and Illumina sequencing platforms. The complete genome sequence of strain LB501T consists of 6,713,618?bp and provides new insights into its metabolic capabilities, including aromatic conversion pathways with promiscuous activities.
Project description:A nonidentifiable mycolicibacterium was isolated from a malignant lymphoma patient treated with intensive chemoimmunotherapy. Multilocus sequence analysis showed that this isolate was close to "Mycolicibacterium (Mycobacterium) ratisbonense," but the details of this species were still unknown. Here, we report the draft genome sequence data of Mycolicibacterium sp. strain NCC-Tsukiji.
Project description:Mycolicibacterium sp. strain CH28 is a novel bacterial isolate belonging to a group of rapidly growing mycobacteria. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of strain CH28 and provide insights into the genetic background of its potential diisopropyl ether-degrading capability.
Project description:Here, we report the draft genome sequence of a marine bacterium, Mycolicibacterium sp. strain 018/SC-01/001, isolated from the marine sponge Iotrochota sp. collected from the Singapore Strait. The analysis of the bacterial genome using the bioinformatics tool antiSMASH 4.0.2 revealed the presence of a number of unique natural product biosynthetic pathways.
