Project description:Mycobacterium phlei, a nontuberculosis mycobacterial species, was first described in 1898-1899. We present the complete genome sequence for theM. phlei CCUG21000(T)type strain and the draft genomes for four additional strains. The genome size for all five is 5.3 Mb with 69.4% Guanine-Cytosine content. This is ?0.35 Mbp smaller than the previously reported M. phlei RIVM draft genome. The size difference is attributed partly to large bacteriophage sequence fragments in theM. phlei RIVM genome. Comparative analysis revealed the following: 1) A CRISPR system similar to Type 1E (cas3) in M. phlei RIVM; 2) genes involved in polyamine metabolism and transport (potAD,potF) that are absent in other mycobacteria, and 3) strain-specific variations in the number of ?-factor genes. Moreover,M. phlei has as many as 82 mce(mammalian cell entry) homologs and many of the horizontally acquired genes in M. phlei are present in other environmental bacteria including mycobacteria that share similar habitat. Phylogenetic analysis based on 693 Mycobacterium core genes present in all complete mycobacterial genomes suggested that its closest neighbor is Mycobacterium smegmatis JS623 and Mycobacterium rhodesiae NBB3, while it is more distant toM. smegmatis mc2 155.
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.
