Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Burkholderia cepacia pan proteome (fasta)

The Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) comprises at least nine closely related species which can be correctly identified only by polyphasic taxonomic approaches. Members of the complex are among the most metabolically versatile microorganisms known, as they grow on more than 200 organic compounds, fix N2 and carry multiple antibiotic resistances. They are involved in important processes such as biodegradation of pollutants, biocontrol of root diseases but some also cause disease in plants, animals and humans. Bcc strains are isolated from very different habitats, including soil, rhizospheres, streams and infected plants, animals and human tissues, especially lungs of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. Bcc strains have large and plastic genomes comprised of multiple (2 to 4) replicons, which is thought to give them their ecological versatility.

Strain J2315 is a genomovar III strain of the ET12 lineage, and is the index strain for transmission of this strain among CF patients in the UK.
