Query: NC_011658:4866184 Bacillus cereus AH187 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Bacillus cereus; Bacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from the vomit of a person having eaten cooked rice by the Public Health Laboratory Service (PHLS), London, UK. The isolate was associated with an emetic outbreak in 1972. This organism is a soil-dwelling opportunistic pathogen that causes food poisoning in infected individuals. The rapid onset is characterized by nausea and vomiting while the late onset is characterized by diarrhea and abdominal pain. The emetic disease is caused by a small stable dodecadepsipeptide cerulide whereas the diarrheal disease is caused by a heat labile enterotoxin. Some strains produce a potent cytotoxin that forms a pore in the membrane of eukaryotic cells and causes necrotic enteritis (death of intestinal epithelial cells) while the unique tripartite membrane lytic toxin hemolysin BL contributes to the diarrheal disease and destructive infections of the eye.

Subject: NC_008255:3578883 Cytophaga hutchinsonii ATCC 33406, complete genome

Lineage: Cytophaga hutchinsonii; Cytophaga; Cytophagaceae; Cytophagales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria

General Information: This organism is abundantly found in soil, freshwater, and marine habitats and it is motile by a gliding motility system that does not utilize flagella. Degradation of various recalcitrant organic macromolecules such as chitin, pectin, and cellulose is a hallmark of this organism.
