Query: NC_009049:80184 Rhodobacter sphaeroides ATCC 17029 chromosome 1, complete sequence

Lineage: Rhodobacter sphaeroides; Rhodobacter; Rhodobacteraceae; Rhodobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: A photosynthetic bacterium useful in bioremediation. Anoxygenic photosynthesis, Carbon fixation, Nitrogen fixation. Bacteria belonging to the Rhodobacter group are metabolically versatile as they are able to grow using photosynthesis, chemosynthesis, and usually can grow under both anaerobic and aerobic conditions. It can grow aerobically and anaerobically in the light and anaerobically in the dark. It produces an intracytoplasmic membrane system consisting of membrane invaginations where the light harvesting complexes (LH1 and LH2) and the reaction center are synthesized.

Subject: NC_005861:2120633 Candidatus Protochlamydia amoebophila UWE25, complete genome

Lineage: Protochlamydia amoebophila; Protochlamydia; Parachlamydiaceae; Chlamydiales; Chlamydiae; Bacteria

General Information: An endosymbiont of free-living amoebae (Acanthamoeba sp. endosymbiont UWE25) and implicated as a potential human pathogen this strain is an environmental isolate. Amoeba endosymbiont. Bacteria belonging to the Chlamydiales group are obligate intracellular parasites of eukaryotic cells. They are found within vertebrates, invertebrate cells, and amoebae hosts. Chlamydiae are one of the commonest causes of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and if left untreated may cause infertility in women. They are transmitted by direct contact or aerosols, and can cause various diseases, while also being able to coexist with the host in an apparently asymptomatic state. Candidatus Protochlamydia amoebophila, originally Parachlamydia is an endosymbiont of free-living amoebae (Acanthamoeba). This organism is an obligate intracellular endosymbiont and lives in small inclusions dispersed throughout the host cell.
