Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Amycolatopsis mediterranei (strain S699) (Nocardia mediterranei) pan proteome (fasta)

Amycolatopsis mediterranei is a soil bacterium which produces rifamycin B, an antibiotic used against various Mycobacterium infections. Strain S699 is a derivative of the original type strain (ATCC 13685) isolated in 1957 from a soil sample from a pine arboretum in France. It was first named Streptomyces mediterranei, later Nocardia mediterranea, and finally Amycolatopsis mediterranei.

A.mediterranei forms branching vegetative hyphae with a diameter of 0.5 to 2.0um, which tend to zig-zag. Spores, when formed, are found on the aerial hyphae and are ellipsoid to oblong, straight to flexous chains. Grows from 10 to 42 degrees Celsius, is non-acidfast, non-motile, aerobic and catalase-positive (adapted from 1986, Lechevalier et al., Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 36:29-37).

As of September 2013, 2 different groups have sequenced S699 using different techniques and assembly processes. The other S699 genome (CP003729) has 218 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and 51 insertion/deletions compared to this one (CP002896), which the authors of the other study attribute to different assembly strategies (adapted from PMIDs 21914879 and 23012281).
