Query: NC_006831:4500 Ehrlichia ruminantium str. Gardel, complete genome

Lineage: Ehrlichia ruminantium; Ehrlichia; Anaplasmataceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. Obligate intracellular bacterium and causative agent of heartwater. This organism causes heartwater, a disease with a high mortality rate that affects both wild and domesticated ruminants in sub-Saharan Africa and parts of the Caribbean. The name heartwater refers to the hydropericardium (excessive fluid in the sac surrounding the heart) commonly found associated with infection. This organism is found in membrane-bound vacuoles in endothelial cells and neutrophils and is an obligate intracellular parasite.

Subject: NC_013532:85371 Anaplasma centrale str. Israel, complete genome

Lineage: Anaplasma centrale; Anaplasma; Anaplasmataceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: The Anaplasma centrale Israel strain was established in the 1950's upon acquisition of the strain from South Africa where it was first identified. Anaplasma centrale infects the red blood cells of cattle and, in many parts of the world, is used as a live vaccine against the more virulent Anaplasma marginale which causes anaplasmosis.
