Query: NC_014010:1392536 Candidatus Puniceispirillum marinum IMCC1322 chromosome, complete Lineage: Puniceispirillum marinum; Puniceispirillum; ; ; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Puniceispirillum marinum (strain IMCC1322) is a Gram-negative bacterium isolated from a surface seawater sample from the Western Pacific Ocean Margin (East Sea of Korea). This organism has no sequenced representatives but as a member of the SAR116 clade it is a cosmopolitan marine bacterioplanktonic assemblage. The organism contains putative CO-utilizing enzymes and has proteorhodopsin for a light-driven proton pump.

General Information: This strain can suppress the diseases caused by Rhizoctonia solani and Pythium ultimum which affect cotton plants. The production of a number of antibiotics (pyrrolnitrin, pyoluteorin, and 2,4-diacetylphloroglucinol) as well as the production of siderophores (which may affect the ability of competing organisms to obtain environmental iron) by this strain can inhibit phytopathogen growth such as the above-mentioned fungi. The genome of this organism contains a number of genes, estimated at 5.7 % of the chromosome, that encode proteins that are involved in secondary metabolism. A large number of repeat elements (REP) are also found in the genome in greater numbers than in related Pseudomonas spp.
