Query: NC_012779:2664849 Edwardsiella ictaluri 93-146, complete genome

Lineage: Edwardsiella ictaluri; Edwardsiella; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Edwardsiella ictaluri is the causative agent of enteric septicemia in catfish (ESC), an economically significant disease of farm-raised catfish. The acute form of ESC causes bacterial septicemia (proliferation of bacteria in the blood) which rapidly leads to death. The chronic form of this disease causes a characteristic head lesion, and may also proceed to septicemia and death. Two plasmids, which are consistently present in Edwardsiella ictaluri isolates, have been sequenced. Both plasmids contain genes for the type III secretory system, which is involved in translocating pathogenicity proteins into the eukaryotic cell.

Subject: NC_012917:3198000 Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum PC1, complete genome

Lineage: Pectobacterium carotovorum; Pectobacterium; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Host. Pectobacterium carotovorum causes soft-rot diseases of various plant hosts through degradation of the plant cell walls. Formerly Erwinia, these organisms are plant-specific pathogens that invade the vascular systems of plants. Pectobacterium colonize the intercellular spaces of plant cells and deliver potent effector molecules (Avr - avirulence) through a type III secretion system (Hrp - hypersensitive response and pathogenicity). Avr proteins control host-bacterium interactions, including host range. Expression of the plant cell-wall-degrading enzymes is controlled through a quorum-sensing mechanism that quantifies the number of Pectobacterium bacteria through measurement of the concentration of small molecules (acyl homoserine lactones) produced by Pectobacterium.
