Query: NC_016933:726197 Francisella tularensis TIGB03 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Francisella tularensis; Francisella; Francisellaceae; Thiotrichales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was first identified by Edward Francis as the causative agent of a plague-like illness that affected squirrels in Tulare county in California in the early part of the 20th century. The organism now bears his name. The disease, which has been noted throughout recorded history, can be transmitted to humans by infected ticks or deerflies, infected meat, or by aerosol, and thus is a potential bioterrorism agent. This organism has a high infectivity rate, and can invade phagocytic and nonphagocytic cells, multiplying rapidly. Once within a macrophage, the organism can escape the phagosome and live in the cytosol. It is an aquatic organism, and can be found living inside protozoans, similar to what is observed with Legionella.

Subject: NC_011565:469962 Candidatus Azobacteroides pseudotrichonymphae genomovar. CFP2,

Lineage: Azobacteroides pseudotrichonymphae; Azobacteroides; ; Bacteroidales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria

General Information: Candidatus Azobacteroides pseudotrichonymphae genomovar. CFP2 was isolated from a single cell of the protist Pseudotrichonympha grassii which resides in the termite gut. Gram-negative bacteria that are specifically found within the cytoplasm of the parabasalid protist Pseudotrichonympha grassii which resides in the hindgut of the termite Coptotermes formosanus. Candidatus Azobacteroides pseudotrichonymphae may be involved in providing nitrogen compounds for the host.
