Query: NC_003103:266013 Rickettsia conorii str. Malish 7, complete genome

Lineage: Rickettsia conorii; Rickettsia; Rickettsiaceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from a human in South Africa. Causative agent for Rocky Mountain spotted fever. This genus, like other Rickettsial organisms such as Neorickettsia and Anaplasma, is composed of obligate intracellular pathogens. The latter is composed of two organisms, Rickettsia prowazekii and Rickettsia typhi. The bacteria are transmitted via an insect, usually a tick, to a host organism, in this case humans, where they target endothelial cells and sometimes macrophages. They attach via an adhesin, rickettsial outer membrane protein A, and are internalized where they persist as cytoplasmically free organisms. Transovarial transmission (from mother to offspring) occurs in the invertebrate host. This organism causes Rocky Mountain spotted fever which can cause severe damage to the endothelial layer of major organs, including the lungs, heart, kidneys, and skeletal muscle which can result in death.

Subject: NC_015428:1668465 Lactobacillus buchneri NRRL B-30929 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Lactobacillus buchneri; Lactobacillus; Lactobacillaceae; Lactobacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Environment: Host, Intestinal microflora; Isolation: Fuel ethanol production facility; Temp: Mesophile. Lactobacillus buchneri is a lactic acid bacillus commonly isolated from dairy and plant products as well as the human oral cavity. This organism is heterofermentative, producing acetic and lactic acid. It also has potential for use as a biofuel producing agent.
