Query: NC_010655:1808657 Akkermansia muciniphila ATCC BAA-835, complete genome Lineage: Akkermansia muciniphila; Akkermansia; Verrucomicrobiaceae; Verrucomicrobiales; Verrucomicrobia; Bacteria General Information: This organism was isolated from human feces and is able to degrade mucin. Loss of this protective barrier may expose the gastrointestinal epithelial cells to pathogenic microorganisms or to the highly acidic gut environment. Akkermansia muciniphila is a member of the Verrucomicrobia which are also common in soil and water.

General Information: This strain (CFT073; O6:K2:H1) is uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) one of the most common causes of non-hospital-acquired urinary tract infections. This organism was named for its discoverer, Theodore Escherich, and is one of the premier model organisms used in the study of bacterial genetics, physiology, and biochemistry. This enteric organism is typically present in the lower intestine of humans, where it is the dominant facultative anaerobe present, but it is only one minor constituent of the complete intestinal microflora. E. coli, is capable of causing various diseases in its host, especially when they acquire virulence traits. E. coli can cause urinary tract infections, neonatal meningitis, and many different intestinal diseases, usually by attaching to the host cell and introducing toxins that disrupt normal cellular processes.
