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_014100:1144463 Caulobacter segnis ATCC 21756 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Caulobacter segnis; Caulobacter; Caulobacteraceae; Caulobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolation: Soil; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water. Caulobacter segnis strain ATCC 21756 is a prostheca-less bacterium belonging to the genus Caulobacter; it was isolated from soil although its habitat is considered to be fresh-water. The absence of a stalk in this genus makes this an interesting bacterium to study.
