Query: NC_014029:331919 Yersinia pestis Z176003 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Yersinia pestis; Yersinia; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: It was isolated from a dead marmot in Tibet Autonomous Region, China. Gram-negative straight rods, sometimes approaching a spherical shape. Y.pestis is always nonmotile. It is the causative agent of plague which is primarily a disease of wild rodents. Y.pestis is transmitted among wild rodents by fleas, in which the bacteria multiply and block the esophagus and the pharynx. The fleas regurgitate the bacteria when they take their next blood meal. Bacteria are transmitted subcutaneously to humans by the bite of infected fleas, but also by air, especially during pandemics of disease. Infective flea bites produce the typical bubonic form of plague in humans.

General Information: Citrobacter koseri ATCC BAA-895 is a clinical isolate from a human infant. Causative agent of neonatal meningitis. Citrobacter koseri, previously known as Citrobacter diversus, Levinea diversus or Levinea malonatica resides in a wide range of environments, including soil, water and food products. It is an occasional inhabitant of human and animal intestines, but is mainly characterized as being a causative agent of neonatal meningitis with an extreme high rate of multiple brain abscess initiations and a concomitant high moratility rate. The bacteria are used in neonatal rat models to study the mechanism of blood-brain barrier penetration, host immune response evasion and its resistance to phagocytotic killing.
