Query: NC_010278:1045884 Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serovar 3 str. JL03 chromosome, Lineage: Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae; Actinobacillus; Pasteurellaceae; Pasteurellales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism is an obligate parasite of pigs. The bacterium colonizes and invades the porcine lower respiratory tract and can survive phagocytosis by macrophages, eventually resulting in the death of the macrophage cell. Three RTS toxins, which result in cell damage, are produced by this organism.

General Information: This bacterium was isolated from a bovine rumen. Succinic acid producing bacterium. This bacterium is able to produce a large amount of succinic acid from readily available agricultural byproducts. Succinic acid is an important component in the manufacture of synthetic resins and biodegradable polymers. Mannheimia succiniciproducens can grow on media which includes whey, a byproduct of the cheese industry which is normally discarded, and corn steep liquor (CSL), which is a byproduct of corn starch production. The organism has been able to produce production-level amounts of succinic acid in both batch and continuous cultures in media containing these inexpensive components.
