Query: NC_009749:558171 Francisella tularensis subsp. holarctica FTA, complete genome

Lineage: Francisella tularensis; Francisella; Francisellaceae; Thiotrichales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolated from an immunocompetent 56-year old male with bacteremic pneumonia in France. Francisella tularensis is a non-motile, aerobic, rod-shaped Gram-negative bacterium and is the causative agent of tularemia. This organism was first identified by Edward Francis as the causative agent of a plague-like illness that affected squirrels in Tulare county in California in the early part of the 20th century. The organism now bears his name. The disease, which has been noted throughout recorded history, can be transmitted to humans by infected ticks or deerflies, infected meat, or by aerosol, and thus is a potential bioterrorism agent. This organism has a high infectivity rate, and can invade phagocytic and nonphagocytic cells, multiplying rapidly. Once within a macrophage, the organism can escape the phagosome and live in the cytosol. It is an aquatic organism, and can be found living inside protozoans, similar to what is observed with Legionella.

Subject: NC_012115:1122905 Nautilia profundicola AmH, complete genome

Lineage: Nautilia profundicola; Nautilia; Nautiliaceae; Nautiliales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Thermophilic sulfur-reducing bacterium. Nautilia can be isolated from the epidermis of the hydrothermal vent worm, Alvinella pompejana and from hydrothermal vent chimneys. These organisms grow chemoautotrophically on hydrogen, sulfur, and CO2. Nautilia profundicola is a thermophilic, hydrogen-oxidizing, sulfur-reducing chemoautotroph that uses the reductive TCA cycle for carbon fixation. It is a member of the deepest branch of the Epsilonproteobacteria and is a model organism of the anaerobic autotrophic Epsilonproteobacteria at hydrothermal vents.
