Query: NC_006138:23902 Desulfotalea psychrophila LSv54, complete genome Lineage: Desulfotalea psychrophila; Desulfotalea; Desulfobulbaceae; Desulfobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism was isolated from marine sediments off of the coast of Svalbard, and can grow at temperatures as low as -1.7 degrees C. Sulfate-reducing bacterium. This organism grows on more complex organic compounds such as acetate, propionate, butyrate, lactate as well as by using simpler compounds such as hydrogen. This organism is an important part of global biogeochemical cycling of carbon and other nutrients.

General Information: Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Host. Pectobacterium carotovorum causes soft-rot diseases of various plant hosts through degradation of the plant cell walls. Formerly Erwinia, these organisms are plant-specific pathogens that invade the vascular systems of plants. Pectobacterium colonize the intercellular spaces of plant cells and deliver potent effector molecules (Avr - avirulence) through a type III secretion system (Hrp - hypersensitive response and pathogenicity). Avr proteins control host-bacterium interactions, including host range. Expression of the plant cell-wall-degrading enzymes is controlled through a quorum-sensing mechanism that quantifies the number of Pectobacterium bacteria through measurement of the concentration of small molecules (acyl homoserine lactones) produced by Pectobacterium.
