Query: NC_010382:3783879 Lysinibacillus sphaericus C3-41, complete genome Lineage: Lysinibacillus sphaericus; Lysinibacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Lysinibacillus sphaericus C3-41 was isolated from a mosquito breeding site in China. This organism is highly toxic to Culex species of mosquito. Lysinibacillus sphaericus, formerly Bacillus sphaericus, is a common environmental organism which produces an insecticidal toxin similar to that produced by Bacillus thuringiensis. Lysinibacillus sphaericus produces two proteins during sporulation which accumulate in parasporal crystalline inclusions. These proteins bind in the gastric cavitiy and midgut of the larvae causing disruption of feeding by the infected host and death.

General Information: Isolated at a depth of 2500 m from the Sulu Trough. High pressure tolerant bacterium. This bioluminescent genus was originally identified in 1878 in association with hake (a marine fish) in Cape Town, South Africa. This species was originally isolated from an amphipod homogenate enrichment from the Sulu Sea. It is a genetically tractable model system for studies of low temperature and high pressure adaptation, and has been used in studies of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acid production under these conditions.
