Query: NC_009505:264963 Brucella ovis ATCC 25840 chromosome I, complete sequence

Lineage: Brucella ovis; Brucella; Brucellaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from sheep tissue in Australia. Causes brucellosis in sheep. This organism specifically affects sheep, causing ovine brucellosis which results in significant economic losses. Infection by the organism can cause infertility in rams as the bacterium preferentially colonizes the genital tract, and causes inflammation of the epididymis which leads to necrotic lesions and a decrease in sperm numbers and motility. This bacterium, like other Brucella, is an intracellular pathogen that infects phagocytic cells such as macrophages. Bacterial cells produces a lipopolysaccharide that lacks O-antigen side chains, which results in a rough colony phenotype, and aids in differentiation as compared to other Brucella.

Subject: NC_013961:3269368 Erwinia amylovora, complete genome

Lineage: Erwinia amylovora; Erwinia; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This bacterium is the causative agent of Fire Blight, a destructive disease of Maloid fruit trees, such as apple and pear. Outbreaks are sporadic in the Northeast, but result in serious damage to roots, blossoms, fruit, and shoots when they occur. The pathogen overwinters in cankers or in smaller limbs. During early spring, in response to both temperature increases and bud development, the bacteria multiplies and may be seen as a yellowish ooze around the perimeter of the canker. Flies and other insects are attracted to the ooze and disperse the inoculum to other trees in the orchard. This species has recently become resistant to streptomycin, an antibiotic traditionally used in its control.
