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: Causative agent of bacterial ring rot. Isolated from infected potato. This organism was first described and classified in 1914 as "Bacterium sepedonicus" and is considered a major plant pathogen. It is a phytopathogenic actinomycete that causes wilt and tuber rot in potato, which is a plant vascular disease with very high bacterial titers. Pathogenicity is believed to be associated with the presence of two plasmids, pCSL1 and pCSL2. This species is subdivided into five subspecies: michiganensis, sepedonicus, nebraskensis, tesselarius and insidiosus each of which infects specific hosts: tomato, potato, corn, wheat and alfalfa, respectively. Members of the Clavibacter genus are known to produce antimicrobial compounds.
