Query: NC_004603:2235142 Vibrio parahaemolyticus RIMD 2210633 chromosome I, complete

Lineage: Vibrio parahaemolyticus; Vibrio; Vibrionaceae; Vibrionales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This is a clinical strain isolated in 1996 in Osaka, Japan. It contains a type III secretion system which may enable colonization and penetration of the host intestinal epithelial layer, and possibly lead to septicemia. The genome contains multipe chromosomal rearrangements as compared to Vibrio cholerae. The organism also produces a hemolysin (thermostable direct hemolysin - TDH) that is particular to Vibrio parahaemolyticus. This genus is abundant in marine or freshwater environments such as estuaries, brackish ponds, or coastal areas; regions that provide an important reservoir for the organism in between outbreaks of the disease. Vibrio can affect shellfish, finfish, and other marine animals and a number of species are pathogenic for humans. This species causes food poisoning (gastroenteritis) in countries that have elevated levels of seafood consumption such as Japan.

Subject: NC_007947:1556437 Methylobacillus flagellatus KT, complete genome

Lineage: Methylobacillus flagellatus; Methylobacillus; Methylophilaceae; Methylophilales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from activated sludge found at the wastewater treatment plant in Moscow, Russia and is the fastest growing methylotroph discovered. Methanol-degrading bacterium. Methylobacillus flagellatus is a methylotroph, able to grow on compounds such as methanol and methyamines. These organisms play a role in the environmental cycling of carbon and nitrogen.
