Query: NC_013716:5201097 Citrobacter rodentium ICC168, complete genome Lineage: Citrobacter rodentium; Citrobacter; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Citrobacter rodentium is the causative agent of transmissible murine colonic hyperplasia in mice. This disease is characterized by a hyperproliferation of the epithelial cells in the colon similar to that found in humans suffering from idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease. In addition this organism contains virulence factors similar to those found in enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli and enteropathogenic E. coli. C. rodentium are being used as models for studying mucosal response to infection, colon tumor production, and virulence associated with pathogenic E. coli.

General Information: This organsim is a sulfur-oxidizing bacterium isolated isolated from estuarine mud in the Netherlands. Sulfur-oxidizing bacterium. Sulfurimonas denitrificans, formerly Thiomicrospira denitrificans, is a denitrifying chemolithoautotroph that uses sulfide or thiosulfate and nitrate or nitrite as the electron donor and acceptor. This organism has been identified in hydrothermal vent areas and from oilfields and may play a role in the cycling of sulfur in these environments.
