Lineage: Wolbachia; Wolbachia; Anaplasmataceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Endosymbiont. Obligate intracellular bacterium infects around 20% of all insect species. Naturally infects Drosophila simulans and induces almost complete cytoplasmic incompatibility in its host. Wolbachia sp. subsp. Drosophila simulans (strain wRi) is an intracellular proteobacterium that infect insects as well as isopods, spiders, scorpions, mites, and filarial nematodes. It is maternally inherited and induces reproductive alterations of insect populations by male killing, feminization, parthenogenesis, or cytoplasmic incompatibility. In insect populations, Wolbachia sp. induce reproductive manipulations to enhance their own spreading. The most frequently observed reproductive abnormality is cytoplasmic incompatibility, where uninfected females are unable to produce offspring with infected males, whereas infected females can produce offspring with both infected and uninfected males, thus creating a reproductive advantage for infected females. Other spectacular effects of Wolbachia sp. infections are male embryo killing, feminization, and parthenogenesis induction.

Subject: NC_009850:1862602 Arcobacter butzleri RM4018, complete genome

Lineage: Arcobacter butzleri; Arcobacter; Campylobacteraceae; Campylobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Arcobacter butzleri RM4018 was isolated from a human patient with gastroenteritis. Causes gastroenteritis in humans. Arcobacter butzleri is a member of the family Campylobacteraceae, related to the human pathogenic Campylobacter spp. and the environmental Sulfurospirillum spp. A. butzleri is mainly found in livestock and water/marine environments and can cause gastroenteritis and bacteremia in humans.
