Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Bacillus anthracis pan proteome (fasta)

Bacillus cereus is a Gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium of the B.cereus group. It is closely related to Bacillus anthracis and Bacillus thuringiensis. Bacillus cereus is a ubiquitous soil organism and opportunistic human pathogen most commonly associated with food poisoning, causing diarrheic (late onset) or emetic (quick onset) outbreaks.

B. cereus AH187 was isolated from the vomit of a person having eaten cooked rice in London, UK and was associated with an emetic outbreak in 1972. The strain is positive for cereulide (emetic toxin) formation, is negative for the HBL hemolytic enterotoxin and cytotoxin K, but carries the non-hemolytic NHE enterotoxin. The strain has been extensively characterized as part of a study recently published by Ehling-Schulz et al. (2005 Microbiology 151, 183-197), in which this isolate was characterized as sequence type 26 using the MLSTDB scheme that is commonly used to type the B. cereus group.
