Query: NC_014499:63365 Candidatus Sulcia muelleri CARI chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Sulcia muelleri; Sulcia; ; Flavobacteriales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria

General Information: This organism is a gut symbiont of the Blue-Green Sharpshooter and several other leafhopper species. It synthesizes amino acids for the host, enabling the leafhopper to live on a diet of plant sap. The Blue-Green Sharpshooter is an important vector for Pierce's Disease in plants, caused by the spread of Xylella fastidiosa.

Subject: NC_002620:705075 Chlamydia muridarum Nigg, complete genome

Lineage: Chlamydia muridarum; Chlamydia; Chlamydiaceae; Chlamydiales; Chlamydiae; Bacteria

General Information: This is a wild-type strain that is virulent in mice. Bacteria belonging to the Chlamydiales group are obligate intracellular parasites of eukaryotic cells. They are found within vertebrates, invertebrate cells, and amoebae hosts. Chlamydiae are one of the commonest causes of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and if left untreated may cause infertility in women. They are transmitted by direct contact or aerosols, and can cause various diseases, while also being able to coexist with the host in an apparently asymptomatic state. This organism causes pneumonitis (inflammation of lung tissue) in the mouse animal model and is used as a model organism to study pathogenesis.
