Lineage: Francisella tularensis; Francisella; Francisellaceae; Thiotrichales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Isolated from a beaver that died of tularemia in Oklahoma in 1978. Causative agent of tularemia. This organism was first identified by Edward Francis as the causative agent of a plague-like illness that affected squirrels in Tulare county in California in the early part of the 20th century. The organism now bears his name. The disease, which has been noted throughout recorded history, can be transmitted to humans by infected ticks or deerflies, infected meat, or by aerosol, and thus is a potential bioterrorism agent. This organism has a high infectivity rate, and can invade phagocytic and nonphagocytic cells, multiplying rapidly. Once within a macrophage, the organism can escape the phagosome and live in the cytosol. It is an aquatic organism, and can be found living inside protozoans, similar to what is observed with Legionella.

Subject: NC_014538:2158131 Thermoanaerobacter sp. X513 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Thermoanaerobacter; Thermoanaerobacter; Thermoanaerobacteraceae; Thermoanaerobacterales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Country: USA; Environment: Fresh water; Isolation: Deep subsurface location at the Piceance Basin, Colorado, USA; Temp: Thermophile; Temp: 60C. Thermoanaerobacter sp. (strain X513) is an anaerobic, extreme thermophilic Gram-positive bacterium isolated by anaerobic enrichment culture from a deep subsurface sample (2000 m below the surface) taken from a core hole at the Piceance Basin, Colorado, USA. It can use a variety of electron donors, including glucose, acetate, hydrogen and xylose while reducing iron, chromium and uranium at 60 degrees.
