Query: NC_017517:1377617 Neisseria meningitidis M01-240355 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Neisseria meningitidis; Neisseria; Neisseriaceae; Neisseriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: The second of two pathogenic Neisseria, this organism causes septicemia and is the leading cause of life-threatening meningitis (inflammation of the meninges, the membrane surrounding the brain and spinal cord) in children. This organism typically residies in the nasopharynx cavity but can invade the respiratory epthelial barrier, cross into the bloodstream and the blood brain barrier, and cause inflammation of the meninges. Pathogenicity factors include the surface proteins (porins and opacity proteins), and the type IV pilus (which is also found in Neisseria gonorrhoeae). This organism, like Neisseria gonorrhoeae, is naturally competent, and protein complexes at the cell surface recognize the uptake signal sequence in extracellular DNA, an 8mer that is found at high frequency in Neisseria chromosomal DNA.

Subject: NC_015145:4232283 Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans Sphe3 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans; Arthrobacter; Micrococcaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Country: Greece; Environment: Soil; Isolation: Creosote polluted soil at Perivleptos; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 30C. Arthrobacter phenanthrenivorans is able to grow with phenanthrene as a sole carbon source. In addition, this organism transports phenanthrene into the cell either by passive diffusion when cells are grown on glucose, or by an active transport system when phenanthrene is the sole carbon source.
