Query: NC_006142:57571 Rickettsia typhi str. Wilmington, complete genome

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

General Information: 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. Rickettsia typhi causes murine typhus and is an obligate intracellular pathogen that infects both the flea vector and hosts such as human, rat, and mouse. In the flea vector, the bacterium penetrates the gut epithelial barrier and is found in the feces which become infective.

Subject: NC_009718:203998 Fervidobacterium nodosum Rt17-B1, complete genome

Lineage: Fervidobacterium nodosum; Fervidobacterium; Thermotogaceae; Thermotogales; Thermotogae; Bacteria

General Information: Fervidobacterium nodosum is a thermophilic, Gram-negative, motile, non-sporulating, glycolytic, obligately anaerobic rod that exists singly, in pairs or in chains. Fervidobacterium nodosum was isolated from a hot spring in New Zealand. Its optimal growth temperature is 65 to 70 degrees Celsius. The cellular morphology of this organism, a member of the Thermotogales, is characterized by a terminal spherical extension of the cell envelope.
