Completenessi <p>Complete Proteome Detector (CPD) is an algorithm which employs statistical evaluation of the completeness and quality of proteomes in UniProt, by looking at the sizes of taxonomically close proteomes.

Akkermansia muciniphila strain ATCC BAA-835 (the type strain) was isolated as a novel, strictly anaerobic, mucin-degrading bacterium from a healthy human fecal sample in anaerobic medium containing gastric mucin as the sole carbon and nitrogen source. Cells are oval-shaped, showing a different size depending on the medium, in mucin medium being 640 nm in diameter and 690 nm in length and rich medium being 830 nm in diameter and 1 um in length. Cells stained Gram-negative, while flagella were not seen on negatively stained electron micrograph preparations. Formation of spores by the strain was never observed. In mucin medium, the organism produced a capsule and could grow as single cells or in pairs, rarely in chains and often formed aggregates. It counts for 1-3% of cells in the human feces and is a normal component of the intestinal tract.
