Query: NC_006142:33268 Rickettsia typhi str. Wilmington, complete genome

Lineage: Rickettsia typhi; Rickettsia; Rickettsiaceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This genus, like other Rickettsial organisms such as Neorickettsia and Anaplasma, is composed of obligate intracellular pathogens. The latter is composed of two organisms, Rickettsia prowazekii and Rickettsia typhi. The bacteria are transmitted via an insect, usually a tick, to a host organism, in this case humans, where they target endothelial cells and sometimes macrophages. They attach via an adhesin, rickettsial outer membrane protein A, and are internalized where they persist as cytoplasmically free organisms. Transovarial transmission (from mother to offspring) occurs in the invertebrate host. Rickettsia typhi causes murine typhus and is an obligate intracellular pathogen that infects both the flea vector and hosts such as human, rat, and mouse. In the flea vector, the bacterium penetrates the gut epithelial barrier and is found in the feces which become infective.

Subject: NC_009943:305854 Candidatus Desulfococcus oleovorans Hxd3, complete genome

Lineage: Desulfococcus oleovorans; Desulfococcus; Desulfobacteraceae; Desulfobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: An alkane-degrading sulfate-reducing Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the saline water phase of an oil-water separator from a northern German oil field. Desulfococcus oleovorans, originally designated Desulfobacterium oleovorans, was isolated using hexadecane as a carbon source and has been used to determine the mechanism of anaerobic hydrocarbon degradation.
