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.

Subject: NC_006905:1186895 Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Choleraesuis str

Lineage: Salmonella enterica; Salmonella; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from a 58-year old man with sepsis and has been shown to be resistant to ciprofloxacin and ceftriaxone. This organism also causes severe disease (swine paratyphoid) in pigs. Causes enteric infections. This group of Enterobactericiae have pathogenic characteristics and are one of the most common causes of enteric infections (food poisoning) worldwide. They were named after the scientist Dr. Daniel Salmon who isolated the first organism, Salmonella choleraesuis, from the intestine of a pig. The presence of several pathogenicity islands (PAIs) that encode various virulence factors allows Salmonella spp. to colonize and infect host organisms. There are two important PAIs, Salmonella pathogenicity island 1 and 2 (SPI-1 and SPI-2) that encode two different type III secretion systems for the delivery of effector molecules into the host cell that result in internalization of the bacteria which then leads to systemic spread.
