Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Arcanobacterium haemolyticum (strain ATCC 9345 / DSM 20595 / NBRC 15585 / NCTC 8452 / 11018) pan proteome (fasta)

This bacterium was first described in 1946 from patients suffering from a sore throat, and was originally named Corynebacterium haemolyticum. It is an obligate parasite of the pharynx of human and farm animals, where it can cause a number of throat-related illnesses such as pharyngitis and tonsillitis. It can also cause osteomyelitis (bone or bone marrow inflammation) and sepsis. As it is the type strain, this is probably the original isolate, which was isolated from US soldiers. It is a non-motile, non-sporulating, rod-shaped facultative anaerobe. It grows optimally at 37 degrees Celsius, and being chemoorganotrophic requires rich media for growth. The predominant menaquinone is MK-9(H4), which minor amounts of MK-8(H4). It has a number of other strain designations, including CCM 5947 and LMG 1616 (adapted from PMID 21304742).
