Query: NC_008027:5533311 Pseudomonas entomophila L48, complete genome Lineage: Pseudomonas entomophila; Pseudomonas; Pseudomonadaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Bacteria belonging to the Pseudomonas group are common inhabitants of soil and water and can also be found on the surfaces of plants and animals. Pseudomonas bacteria are found in nature in a biofilm or in planktonic form. Pseudomonas bacteria are renowned for their metabolic versatility as they can grow under a variety of growth conditions and do not need any organic growth factors. This organism is highly pathogenic for a variety of insects in both larvae and adults. It was isolated from fruit flies and decaying fruits taken from a sample set obtained from the Island of Guadeloupe and tested for induction of a systemic immune response in Drosophila. Destruction of the insect gut tissue occurs during infection.Analysis of the proteins encoded by the genome indicated a number of potential virulence factors, although a type III secretion system was not found.

General Information: This strain (OY-M) is derived from a wild-type disease-causing strain (OY-W; onions yellow disease) which was isolated in Saga Prefecture, Japan, in 1982, and shows mild symptoms and does not cause stunting nor phloem hyperplasia (excessive increase in number of cells). Plant pathogenic bacterium. Phytoplasmas inhabit phloem (food-conducting vascular tissue) sieve elements of plants where they cause a variety of diseases. There is great interest in sequencing these organisms since they are currently unculturable and examination of the genome may lead to methods to deal with the diseases they cause including the development of antimicrobial agents.
