Query: NC_017279:437665 Campylobacter jejuni subsp. jejuni IA3902 chromosome, complete Lineage: Campylobacter jejuni; Campylobacter; Campylobacteraceae; Campylobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism is the leading cause of bacterial food poisoning (campylobacteriosis) in the world, and is more prevalent than Salmonella enteritis (salmonellosis). Found throughout nature, it can colonize the intestines of both mammals and birds, and transmission to humans occurs via contaminated food products. This organism can invade the epithelial layer by first attaching to epithelial cells, then penetrating through them. Systemic infections can also occur causing more severe illnesses.

General Information: Treponema denticola ATCC 35405 was isolated from a human periodontal pocket. Associated with periodontal disease. This organism is a member of the spirochaetales and is a motile, slender, helically shaped flexible organism. Obligately anaerobic growth occurs at 30-42°C, with a pH of 6.5-8.0. The bacterium is commonly found in the oral cavity of humans and often associated with periodontal disease, an inflammation of the gum tissue that frequently precedes bone resorbtion and subsequent tooth loss.
