Lineage: Klebsiella pneumoniae; Klebsiella; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Klebsiella pneumoniae 342 was isolated from the stem tissue of Zea mays. This strain fixes atmospheric nitrogen and may be able to provide nitrogen, in the form of ammonia, to plant cells. This organism is the most medically important organism within the genus Klebsiella. It is an environmental organism found in water, soil, and on the surface of plants. Several strains have been isolated from plant tissues and are nitrogen-fixing endophytes that may be a source of nitrogen for the plant. Other strains can become opportunistic pathogens which infect humans, and typically causes hospital-acquired infections in immunocompromised patients. Major sites of infection include the lungs, where it causes a type of pneumonia, and urinary tract infections. Klebsiella can also enter the bloodstream (bacterimia) and cause sepsis. The pathogen can also infect animals and cause inflammation of the uterus in horses as well as more generalized infections in other mammals. This organism expresses numerous pathogenicity factors, including multiple adhesins, capsular polysaccharide, siderophores, and lipopolysaccharide for the evasion of host defenses. The multiple antibiotic resistance genes carried on the chromosome inhibit efforts to clear the organism from infected patients via antibiotic use.

Subject: NC_011852:211314 Haemophilus parasuis SH0165, complete genome

Lineage: Haemophilus parasuis; Haemophilus; Pasteurellaceae; Pasteurellales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism is the causative agent of Glasser's disease in swine but is usually found as a commensal organism in the upper respiratory tract. Glasser's disease is responsible for significant losses in swine husbandry. The disease was first noted in 1910 by Glasser and the organism requires factor V (NAD - nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) growth factor, like H. suis, but not factor X (iron porphyrin) which H. suis requires. Pathogenicity and virulence are often strain specific. Symptoms include fibrinous polyserositis (fibrous inflammation of serous membranes, polyarthritis (inflammation of multiple joints) and meningitis (inflammation of meninges)and pneumonia.
