Query: NC_008536:5192235 Solibacter usitatus Ellin6076, complete genome Lineage: Solibacter usitatus; Solibacter; Solibacteraceae; Solibacterales; Acidobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This strain was isolated from a rotationally grazed pasture of perennial ryegrass and white clover in Victoria, Australia. Solibacter usitatus is a member of the Acidobacteria, a group of organisms commonly found in water reservoirs, microbial mats, many different soil types, marine and freshwater sediments, as well as in hot-spring mats and sediments, etc. Furthermore, they sometimes form the dominant group in a habitat. These bacteria are involved in the first step of destruction of biologically complex molecules produced by autotrophic (capable of synthesizing their own nutrients) microorganisms.

General Information: Isolated from a biofilm from San Diego Bay in California. Marine biofilm bacterium associated with shell disease in shellfish. A common marine bacterium that exists both in the water column, and in biofilms attached to surfaces. This organism produces a well characterized, commercially important agarase. Pseudoalteromonas atlantica has been isolated from lesions on crabs with shell disease. Shell disease is characterized by progressive degradation of the shell, often leading to an infection of the hemolymph (blood) and may be caused by Pseudoalteromonas, Alteromonas, Vibrio, or other marine organisms. In addition to producing extracellular enzymes which attack the shell, Pseudoalteromonas atlantica produces a the lipopolysaccharide which has been shown to be a potential virulence factor in shell disease.
