Lineage: Francisella tularensis; Francisella; Francisellaceae; Thiotrichales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolated from a beaver that died of tularemia in Oklahoma in 1978. Causative agent of tularemia. This organism was first identified by Edward Francis as the causative agent of a plague-like illness that affected squirrels in Tulare county in California in the early part of the 20th century. The organism now bears his name. The disease, which has been noted throughout recorded history, can be transmitted to humans by infected ticks or deerflies, infected meat, or by aerosol, and thus is a potential bioterrorism agent. This organism has a high infectivity rate, and can invade phagocytic and nonphagocytic cells, multiplying rapidly. Once within a macrophage, the organism can escape the phagosome and live in the cytosol. It is an aquatic organism, and can be found living inside protozoans, similar to what is observed with Legionella.

Subject: NC_013720:3925756 Pirellula staleyi DSM 6068, complete genome

Lineage: Pirellula staleyi; Pirellula; Planctomycetaceae; Planctomycetales; Planctomycetes; Bacteria

General Information: Isolation: Freshwater Lake Lansing, Michigan, USA; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 20 - 25C; Habitat: Fresh water. Pirellula staleyi DSM 6068 is commonly isolated from freshwater environments. Pirellula staleyi is a pear-shaped bacterium having a life cycle consisting of an aggregate-forming sessile (non-motile) form and a motile swarmer cell. They have a pirellulosome, a large nucleoid-containing cellular compartment, which is surrounded by a single membrane.
