Query: NC_009348:1893292 Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida A449, complete genome Lineage: Aeromonas salmonicida; Aeromonas; Aeromonadaceae; Aeromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida A449 was isolated from a brown trout with furunculosis. The agent of furunculosis, a major cause of mortality among salmonid fishes. This bacterium is the causal agent of furunculosis. Although it was discovered nearly 100 years ago, it is not known how the diesase is spread. Furunculosis is temperature sensistive, with acute cases occurring when the water is above 20 degrees C and chronic cases developing at temperatures below 13 degrees C. The acute form of the disease causes the fish to turn a dark color and stop eating.

General Information: First isolated from soil in 1941. Bacterium with a multi-stage lifecycle. M.xanthus is a Gram-negative rod-shaped bacterium. This organism undergoes a complex development and differentiation pathway. When cell density increases, the organism switches to "social motility" where aggregates of cells can gather together into masses termed fruiting bodies that may consist of up to 100 000 cells. This organism is also utilized industrially to produce the anticancer drug epithilone.
