Roux V, El Karkouri K, Lagier JC, Robert C, Raoult D - Stand Genomic Sci (2012)

Bottom Line: K. massiliensis is a Gram-positive aerobic rod.Here we describe the features of this organism, together with the complete genome sequence and annotation.The 3,199,090 bp long genome contains 3,240 protein-coding genes and 86 RNA genes, including between 3 and 4 rRNA genes.

ABSTRACT
Kurthia massiliensis strain JC30(T) sp. nov. is the type strain of K. massiliensis sp. nov., a new species within the genus Kurthia. This strain, whose genome is described here, was isolated from the fecal flora of a healthy patient. K. massiliensis is a Gram-positive aerobic rod. Here we describe the features of this organism, together with the complete genome sequence and annotation. The 3,199,090 bp long genome contains 3,240 protein-coding genes and 86 RNA genes, including between 3 and 4 rRNA genes.

f3: Transmission electron microscopy of K. massiliensis strain JC30T, using a Morgani 268D (Philips) at an operating voltage of 60kV.The scale bar represents 1 μm.

Mentions: The size and ultrastructure of cells were determined by negative staining transmission electron microscopy. The rods were 0.9-2.4 μm long and 0.6-1.8 μm wide (Figure 3). Peritrichous flagella were observed. Capsule presence was determined by India ink stain and after bacteria embedding in Epon 812 resin and observation by transmission electron microscopy (Figures 4 and 5). Strain JC30T exhibited catalase activity but no oxidase activity. Api ZYM, Api 20NE (BioMérieux) were used to study biochemical characters [Table 2].
