Query: NC_005773:5684000 Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola 1448A, complete genome
Lineage: Pseudomonas savastanoi; Pseudomonas; Pseudomonadaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: This is gram-negative bacterium pathogenic in plants. Characterized as causing halo blight on beans (Phaseolus vulgaris). This bacterium is closely related to Pseudomonas syringae pv. glycinea and Pseudomonas syringae pv. savastanoi and produces phaseolotoxin, which is a phytotoxin. Strain 1448A is a natural occurring rifampicin-resistant mutant strain and contains a non-functional homolog of avrPphE.
Subject: NC_004369:2465461 Corynebacterium efficiens YS-314, complete genome
Lineage: Corynebacterium efficiens; Corynebacterium; Corynebacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: This is the type strain of C. efficiens isolated by researchers of Ajinomoto food company from soils at Kanagawa, Japan in the late 1980's. The strain can grow and produce glutamate at temperatures above up to 45oC in contrast to C. glutamicum that is only efficient at around 30oC. This feature is very beneficial for industrial applications, because less heat removal is required in fermenters to be used for cultivation of these bacteria. Glutamate-producing bacterium. They may be found as members of the normal microflora of humans, where these bacteria find a suitable niche in virtually every anatomic site. This organism is a recently proposed new species of the genus capable of producing significant quantities of glutamic acid (glutamate), an important enhancer of taste in the food industry. It is currently used commercially to produce glutamate and other amino acids and compounds.
