ABSTRACT Amycolicicoccus subflavusDQS3-9A1T, isolated from crude oil-polluted soil in the Daqing Oilfield in China, is a type strain of a newly published novel species in the novel genus Amycolicicoccus. Here we report the complete genome of DQS3-9A1Tand genes associated with oil-polluted environment. 
The Genome of the Moderate Halophile Amycolicicoccus subflavus DQS3-9A1T Reveals Four Alkane Hydroxylation Systems and Provides Some Clues on the Genetic Basis for Its Adaptation to a Petroleum Environment
Results reveal the effective adaptation of the strain DQS3-9A1T to harsh oil environment and provide a genome platform to investigate the global regulation of different alkane metabolisms in bacteria that are crucially important for petroleum degradation. Expand
Reclassification of Amycolicicoccus subflavus as Hoyosella subflava comb. nov. and emended descriptions of the genus Hoyosella and Hoyosella altamirensis.
16S rRNA gene sequences of two type strains belonging to different genera within the suborder Corynebacterineae, namely Hoyosella altamirensis and Amycolicicoccus subflavus, show a similarity of 99.8Expand
Diverse alkane hydroxylase genes in microorganisms and environments
Hints for horizontal gene transfer, gene duplication, and gene fusion were found, which together are likely responsible for diversifying the alkB and CYP153 genes adapt to the ubiquitous distribution of different alkanes in nature. Expand
A novel mycolic acid species defines two novel genera of the Actinobacteria, Hoyosella and Amycolicicoccus.
The originality of their structures reinforces the recent description of the novel genera Amycolicicoccus and Hoyosella, and questions the biosynthesis of these new mycolic acids in terms of the nature of the precursors, chain elongation and desaturation. Expand
