Query: NC_014148:602864 Planctomyces limnophilus DSM 3776 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Planctomyces limnophilus; Planctomyces; Planctomycetaceae; Planctomycetales; Planctomycetes; Bacteria General Information: Isolation: Surface water; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water, Marine; Isolation: surface water. Planctomyces limnophilus is a member of the order Planctomycetales, a group of budding mostly aquatic microorganisms lacking peptidoglycan and representing a phylogenetically distinct lineage within the domain Bacteria. The planctomycetes share a number of morphological features, having spherical or ovoid cells which bear crateriform structures and, in some cases, nonprosthecate appendages. The is the type strain and was isolated from the surface waters of a German lake.

General Information: This strain (OY-M) is derived from a wild-type disease-causing strain (OY-W; onions yellow disease) which was isolated in Saga Prefecture, Japan, in 1982, and shows mild symptoms and does not cause stunting nor phloem hyperplasia (excessive increase in number of cells). Plant pathogenic bacterium. Phytoplasmas inhabit phloem (food-conducting vascular tissue) sieve elements of plants where they cause a variety of diseases. There is great interest in sequencing these organisms since they are currently unculturable and examination of the genome may lead to methods to deal with the diseases they cause including the development of antimicrobial agents.
