Query: NC_017246:1942293 Brucella melitensis M5-90 chromosome chromosome I, complete

Lineage: Brucella melitensis; Brucella; Brucellaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: They are highly infectious, and can be spread through contact with infected animal products or through the air, making them a potential bioterrorism agent. Once the organism has entered the body, it can become intracellular, and enter the blood and lymphatic regions, multiplying inside phagocytes before eventually causing bacteremia (spread of bacteria through the blood). Virulence may depend on a type IV secretion system which may promote intracellular growth by secreting important effector molecules. This organism is a facultative intracellular bacteria that causes abortion in wild and domestic animals, usually goats or sheep, and undulant fever in humans. Brucellosis is a major health problem in the Mediterranean region and parts of Asia, Africa, and Latin America, where it causes severe economic losses. The disease is transmitted to humans by nonpasteurized milk and milk products or by direct contact with infected animals or carcasses.

Subject: NC_014664:2373451 Rhodomicrobium vannielii ATCC 17100 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Rhodomicrobium vannielii; Rhodomicrobium; Hyphomicrobiaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Temp: Mesophile; Rhodomicrobium vannielii is a budding prosthecate bacterium. Rhodomicrobium vannielii is a purple non-sulfur bacterium isolated in 1949 that is photosynthetic under anaerobic conditions. It is able to grow with ferrous iron as electron donor, although this does not support growth over a long time.
