Query: NC_014624:2668157 Eubacterium limosum KIST612 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Eubacterium limosum; Eubacterium; Eubacteriaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Eubacterium limosum KIST612 is an acetogenic bacterium isolated from an anaerobic digester and has a high growth rate on synthesis gas (CO; carbon monoxide) using it as a sole energy source. This organism produces acetate as well as butyrate and ethanol as fermentation products from syngas. Therefore, E. limosum KIST612 has been considered for a model strain for bioenergy production from syngas (obtained from biomass).

Subject: NC_010729:1549744 Porphyromonas gingivalis ATCC 33277, complete genome

Lineage: Porphyromonas gingivalis; Porphyromonas; Porphyromonadaceae; Bacteroidales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from human gingiva. This organism is associated with severe and chronic periodontal (tissues surrounding and supporting the tooth) diseases. Progression of the disease is caused by colonization by this organism in an anaerobic environment in host tissues and severe progression results in loss of the tissues supporting the tooth and eventually loss of the tooth itself. The black pigmentation characteristic of this bacterium comes from iron acquisition that does not use the typical siderophore system of other bacteria but accumulates hemin. Peptides appear to be the predominant carbon and energy source of this organism, perhaps in keeping with its ability to destroy host tissue. Oxygen tolerance systems play a part in establishment of the organism in the oral cavity, including a superoxide dismutase. Pathogenic factors include extracellular adhesins that mediate interactions with other bacteria as well as the extracellular matrix, and a host of degradative enzymes that are responsible for tissue degradation and spread of the organism including the gingipains, which are trypsin-like cysteine proteases.
