Query: NC_009879:860925 Rickettsia canadensis str. McKiel, complete genome

Lineage: Rickettsia canadensis; Rickettsia; Rickettsiaceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was originally isolated from ticks in a field study on tick-transmitted diseases of small mammals in Canada. Member of the typhus group of Rickettsiales. Members of this genus, like other Rickettsial organisms such as Neorickettsia and Anaplasma, are obligate intracellular pathogens. In both groups, the bacteria are transmitted via an insect, usually a tick, to a host organism where they target endothelial cells and sometimes macrophages. They attach via an adhesin, rickettsial outer membrane protein A, and are internalized where they persist as cytoplasmically free organisms. Rickettsia canadensis was originally thought to be a member of the typhus group of Rickettsiales, however, it is now thought to represent a distict group with the rickettsia.

Subject: NC_018607:290500 Brachyspira pilosicoli B2904 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Brachyspira pilosicoli; Brachyspira; Brachyspiraceae; Spirochaetales; Spirochaetes; Bacteria

General Information: Brachyspira pilosicoli is an anaerobic spirochete that colonizes the large intestine of various species of birds and animals and humans. It attaches to colonic enterocytes in a condition called 'intestinal spirochetosis', characterized by mild colitis, diarrhea and reduced growth.
