A number of Bacillus strains are known to have antimicrobial activity useful in various fields. In order to prevent Propionibacterium acnes, which is one of the factors of acne, we selected Bacillus halotolerans F41-3 which have high antimicrobial activities against P. acnes. We conducted complete genome sequencing of B. halotolerans F41-3 and analyzed genomic characteristics. This genome size is 4,144,458 bp with a G + C content of 43.76%, 4,145 total genes and 3,686 protein coding genes. Among the genes, we found that gene clulster of subtilosin, a kind of bacteriocin, synthesis and gene cluster of nickel transportation. Both of them may influence inhibition of P. acnes.
Keywords : Bacillus halotolerans, genome sequence, inhibition of Propionibacterium acnes, subtilosin
