Query: NC_013766:679906 Listeria monocytogenes 08-5578 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Listeria monocytogenes; Listeria; Listeriaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: This organism, which causes listeriosis, is one of the leading causes of death from food-borne pathogens especially in pregnant women, newborns, the elderly, and immunocompromised individuals. It is found in environments such as decaying vegetable matter, sewage, water, and soil, and it can survive extremes of both temperatures (1-45 degrees C) and salt concentration marking it as an extremely dangerous food-born pathogen, especially on food that is not reheated. This organism is enteroinvasive, and utilizes an actin-based motility system by using a surface protein, ActA, that promotes actin polymerization, to spread intercellularly using the polymerized cytoskeletal protein as a "motor".

Subject: NC_008555:1204000 Listeria welshimeri serovar 6b str. SLCC5334, complete genome

Lineage: Listeria welshimeri; Listeria; Listeriaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Nonpathogenic bacterium. This organism is a nonpathogenic Listeria found in soil, water, food, and sewage. First isolated from decaying plants. L. welshimeri bacteria are small (0.5 to 2.0 μm), non-spore-forming, gram-positive rods which are motile below 30°C by means of peritrichous flagella.
