Mycetomas can be caused by Actinomycetales
, bacteria, and true fungi.
Data from the 4 sequenced CM6 isolates indicated that these were closely related to the Microbacteria group (Gram positive, high GC, Firmicutes, Actinobacteria, Actinobacteridae, Actinomycetales
, Micrococcineae, Microbacteriaceae).
This 65-entry reference describes the cell wall in terms of its infrastructure and surface proteins, the Streptococcus groups (including A, B, C, G, pneumoniae, enterococci, oral streptococci and lactococci), Staphylococcus (including cell interactions, animal models of experimental Staphylococcus aureus infection and antibiotic resistance), the Listeriae, spore-forming pathogens and gram-positive members of the Actinomycetales
, and antibiotic heavy metal resistance mechanisms.
Conclusions: Nocardia are saprophytic, weakly acid-fast aerobic organisms belonging to the order of Actinomycetales
Most metabolites of bacterial origin come from one group, namely the Gram-positive soil bacteria of the order Actinomycetales
Studies on the ecology of actinomycetes in an agricultural soil amended with organic residues: identification of the dominant groups of Actinomycetales
are aerobic, gram-positive bacteria of the order Actinomycetales
, known for their ability to produce antimicrobial molecules such as streptomycin.
