Lineage: Clavibacter michiganensis; Clavibacter; Microbacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Phytopathogen that causes bacterial wilt and canker of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum). This is considered to be the most important bacterial disease of tomato causing substantial economic losses worldwide. Bacteria enter the plant by wounds on root or stem and then find their way into the xylem allowing a massive systemic colonization. The first stage of the disease is characterized by unilateral wilting of leaves. Wilting then spreads to all leaves, canker lesions develop on the stem and the plant dies. If infection occurs at a late stage of plant development, plants can survive and yield fruit that may have spots, so called bird's eyes. Often the seeds will be infected and this has been the major source for outbreaks of Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis infections in agriculture. Members of the Clavibacter genus are known to produce antimicrobial compounds.

Subject: NC_011886:404661 Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus A6, complete genome

Lineage: Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus; Arthrobacter; Micrococcaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus A6 (DSM 12829) was isolated from soil at Fort Collins, Colorado, USA and is able to use 4-chlorophenol as a sole source of carbon and energy. This organism can degrade 4-chlorophenol in soil at temperatures ranging from 5 to 28 degrees C making it a good candidate for bioremediation. Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus can degrade high concentrations of para-substituted phenols, such as 4-chlorophenol and 4-nitrophenol and can survive under harsh conditions, such as cold temperature and during starvation in soil.
