Query: NC_012811:227541 Methylobacterium extorquens AM1 megaplasmid, complete sequence

Lineage: Methylobacterium extorquens; Methylobacterium; Methylobacteriaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: First isolated in 1960 in Oxford, England, as an airborne contaminant growing on methylamine. This strain can grow on methylamine or methanol, but not methane. This organism is capable of growth on one-carbon compounds such as methanol. Methanol is oxidized to formaldehyde which is then used metabolically to generate either energy or biomass. These bacteria are commonly found in the environment, especially associated with plants which produce methanol when metabolizing pectin during cell wall synthesis. At least 25 genes are required for this complex process of converting methanol to formaldehyde and this specialized metabolic pathway is of great interest.

Subject: NC_003296:673790 Ralstonia solanacearum GMI1000 plasmid pGMI1000MP, complete

Lineage: Ralstonia solanacearum; Ralstonia; Burkholderiaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain is a race 1 strain isolated from the tomato plant and is also pathogenic on Arabidopsis thaliana. It specifically invades the plant xylem. Plant pathogen. This organism is a phytopathogen that is found in the soil and causes systemic wilting disease in many important food crops such as tomatoes, potatoes, bananas, tobacco, pepper, peanut, ginger, and eucalyptus. It can infect plants found in over 50 different families and this pathogen can be carried asymptomatically in some species.
