Salicibibacter kimchii gen. nov., sp. nov., a moderately halophilic and alkalitolerant bacterium in the family Bacillaceae, isolated from kimchi.

A moderately halophilic and alkalitolerant bacterial strain NKC1-1T was isolated from commercial kimchi in Korea. Strain NKC1-1T was Gram-stain-positive, aerobic, rod-shaped, non-motile, and contained diaminopimelic acid-type murein. Cell growth was observed in a medium containing 0-25% (w/v) NaCl (optimal at 10% [w/v]), at 20-40°C (optimal at 37°C) and pH 6.5-10.0 (optimal at pH 9.0). The major isoprenoid quinone of the isolate was menaquinone-7, and the major polar lipids were phosphatidylglycerol and unidentified phospholipids. Cell membrane of the strain contained iso-C17:0 and anteiso-C15:0 as the major fatty acids. Its DNA G + C content was 45.2 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis indicated the…

Identification and genome analysis of Deinococcus actinosclerus SJTR1, a novel 17ß-estradiol degradation bacterium.

Biodegradation with microorganisms is considered as an efficient strategy to remove the environmental pollutants. In this work, Deinococcus actinosclerus SJTR1 isolated from the wastewater was confirmed with great degradation capability to 17ß-estradiol, one typical estrogen chemical. It could degrade nearly 90% of 17ß-estradiol (10 mg/L) in 5 days and transform it into estrone; its degradation kinetics fitted for the first-order kinetic equation. The whole genome sequence of D. actinosclerus SJTR1 was obtained and annotated, containing one chromosome (3,315,586 bp) and four plasmids (ranging from 17,267 bp to 460,244 bp). A total of 3913 CDSs and 73 RNA genes (including 12 rRNA genes, 50 tRNA genes,…

Complete genome sequence of Bordetella sp. HZ20 sheds light on the ecological role of bacterium without algal-polysaccharides degrading abilities in the brown seaweed-abundant environment

Bordetella sp. HZ20 was isolated from the surface of brown seaweed (Laminaria japonica) and absence of the abilities to decompose the brown seaweed. The genome of Bordetella sp. HZ20 was sequenced and comprised of one circular chromosome with the size of 4,227,194?bp and DNA G?+?C content of 55.5%. Genomic annotation showed that, Bordetella sp. HZ20 may have chitin degradation related enzymes, heparin-sulfate lyase-like protein and enzymes related to the synthase and utilization of polyhydroxyalkanoate for carbon utilization, nitrate and nitrite reductase, glutamate dehydrogenase, glutamate synthase and glutamine synthetase for nitrogen cycle, polyphosphate kinases (pkk1 and pkk2), the high-affinity phosphate-specific transport…

Lifestyle of Lactobacillus hordei isolated from water kefir based on genomic, proteomic and physiological characterization.

Water kefir is a traditional fermented beverage made from sucrose, water, kefir granules, dried or fresh fruits. In our water kefir granules, Lactobacillus (L.) hordei is one of the predominant lactic acid bacteria (LAB) species of this presumed symbiotic consortium. It faces abundant sucrose versus limitation of amino- and fatty acids in an acidic environment. Sequencing of the genome of L. hordei TMW 1.1822 revealed one chromosome plus three plasmids. The size of the chromosome was 2.42?Mbp with a GC content of 35% GC and 2461 predicted coding sequences. Furthermore, we identified 1474 proteins upon growth on water kefir medium.…

Whole-genome sequence of purple non-sulfur bacteria, Rhodobacter sphaeroides strain MBTLJ-8 with improved CO2 reduction capacity.

Rhodobacter sphaeroides consists of two chromosomes and many plasmids and incorporates many environmentally important functional gene. Rhodobacter sphaeroides MBTLJ-8 was derived from R. sphaeroides 2.4.1 using chemical mutagenesis and is characterized by enhanced production of physiological active compounds as well as improved carbon dioxide reduction capacity. We reported the complete genome sequence and characteristics based on genomic information of this bacteria. Therefore, this genome sequence provides elucidation for improved CO2 fixation and enhanced physiological active compounds production, and will be used as the efficient photosynthetic bacteria for the biological CO2 reduction system.

Draft genome sequence of the xanthocidin-producing strain Streptomyces sp. AcE210, isolated from a root nodule of Alnus glutinosa (L.).

Streptomyces sp. strain AcE210 exhibited antibacterial activity toward Gram-positive microorganisms and turned out to be a rare producer of the special- ized metabolite xanthocidin. The 10.6-Mb draft genome sequence gives insight into the complete specialized metabolite production capacity and builds the basis to find and locate the biosynthetic gene cluster of xanthocidin.

Genome analysis of Rhodococcus Sp. DSSKP-R-001: A highly effective ß-estradiol-degrading bacterium.

We screened bacteria that use E2 as its sole source of carbon and energy for growth and identified them as Rhodococcus, and we named them DSSKP-R-001. For a better understanding of the metabolic potential of the strain, whole genome sequencing of Rhodococcus DSSKP-R-001 and annotation of the functional genes were performed. The genomic sketches included a predicted protein-coding gene of approximately 5.4?Mbp with G?+?C content of 68.72% and 5180. The genome of Rhodococcus strain DSSKP-R-001 consists of three replicons: one chromosome and two plasmids of 5.2, 0.09, and 0.09, respectively. The results showed that there were ten steroid-degrading enzymes distributed…

Complete genome sequence of lanthionine-producing Lactobacillus brevis strain 100D8, generated by PacBio sequencing.

Lactobacillus brevis strain 100D8 was isolated from rye silage and showed rapid acidification ability in vitro and antifungal activity against mycotoxin- producing fungi. We report here the complete genome sequence of L. brevis strain 100D8, which has a circular chromosome (2,351,988 bp, 2,304 coding sequences [CDSs]) and three plasmids (45,061 bp, 57 CDSs; 40,740 bp, 40 CDSs; and 39,943 bp, 57 CDSs).

Genome analysis of Vallitalea guaymasensis strain L81 isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent system.

Abyssivirga alkaniphila strain L81T, recently isolated from a black smoker biofilm at the Loki’s Castle hydrothermal vent field, was previously described as a mesophilic, obligately anaerobic heterotroph able to ferment carbohydrates, peptides, and aliphatic hydrocarbons. The strain was classified as a new genus within the family Lachnospiraceae. Herein, its genome is analyzed and A. alkaniphila is reassigned to the genus Vallitalea as a new strain of V. guaymasensis, designated V. guaymasensis strain L81. The 6.4 Mbp genome contained 5651 protein encoding genes, whereof 4043 were given a functional prediction. Pathways for fermentation of mono-saccharides, di-saccharides, peptides, and amino acids were…

Complete genome sequence of Arcticibacterium luteifluviistationis SM1504 T, a cytophagaceae bacterium isolated from Arctic surface seawater

Arcticibacterium luteifluviistationis SM1504Twas isolated from Arctic surface seawater and classified as a novel genus of the phylum Bacteroides. To date, no Arcticibacterium genomes have been reported, their genomic compositions and metabolic features are still unknown. Here, we reported the complete genome sequence of A. luteifluviistationis SM1504T, which comprises 5,379,839bp with an average GC content of 37.20%. Genes related to various stress (such as radiation, osmosis and antibiotics) resistance and gene clusters coding for carotenoid and flexirubin biosynthesis were detected in the genome. Moreover, the genome contained a 245-kb genomic island and a 15-kb incomplete prophage region. A great percentage of…

Genome analysis of Mycobacterium avium subspecies hominissuis strain 109.

Infection with Mycobacterium avium is a significant cause of morbidity and its treatment requires the use of multiple antibiotics for more than 12 months. In the current work, we provide the genome sequence, gene annotations, gene ontology annotations, and protein homology data for M. avium strain 109 (MAC109), which has been used extensively in preclinical studies. The de novo assembled genome consists of a circular chromosome of length 5,188,883?bp and two circular plasmids of sizes 147,100?bp and 16,516?bp. We have named the plasmids pMAC109a and pMAC109b, respectively. Based on its genome, we confirm that MAC109 should be classified as Mycobacterium…
