Here, the complete genome sequence of Duncaniella muris strain B8 is presented. The anaerobic strain was isolated from the feces of C57/BL6 mice and is closely related to D. muris strain DSM 103720, which is the type strain of the recently proposed genus Duncaniella of the Muribaculaceae.Copyright © 2019 Miyake et al.
In this work we report the complete sequence and assembly of the estradiol-degrading bacterium Novosphingobium tardaugens NBRC 16725 genome into a single contig using the Pacific Biosciences RS II system.
Algal polysaccharides are an important bacterial nutrient source and central component of marine food webs. However, cellular and ecological aspects concerning the bacterial degradation of polysaccharide mixtures, as presumably abundant in natural habitats, are poorly understood. Here, we contextualize marine polysaccharide mixtures and their bacterial utilization in several ways using the model bacterium Alteromonas macleodii 83-1, which can degrade multiple algal polysaccharides and contributes to polysaccharide degradation in the oceans. Transcriptomic, proteomic and exometabolomic profiling revealed cellular adaptations of A. macleodii 83-1 when degrading a mix of laminarin, alginate and pectin. Strain 83-1 exhibited substrate prioritization driven by catabolite repression,…
We investigated inflow of a wastewater treatment plant and sediment of an urban lake for the presence of Clostridioides difficile by cultivation and PCR. Among seven colonies we sequenced the complete genomes of three: two non-toxigenic isolates from wastewater and one toxigenic isolate from the urban lake. For all obtained isolates, a close genomic relationship with human-derived isolates was observed.Copyright © 2019 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
