Query: NC_008786:1767315 Verminephrobacter eiseniae EF01-2, complete genome Lineage: Verminephrobacter eiseniae; Verminephrobacter; Comamonadaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This species was isolated from the kidney of the earthworm Eisenia foetida. Evidence based on curing experiments, Acidovorax-specific probes, and 16S phylogeny, indicate that earthworm egg capsules contain high numbers of the bacterial endosymbiont. Juvenile earthworms are colonized during embryonic development within the egg capsule, and failing this are not likely to acquire the symbiont by association with colonized adults or their bedding.

General Information: Environment: Host; Temp: Mesophile. Pantoea sp. (strain At-9b) is a cellulose-degrading Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the fungus gardens of Atta cephalotes leaf-cutter ants. Pantoea sp. has the capacity to degrade cellulose, and thus may play a role as cellulose-degrading symbionts in the gardens of leaf-cutter ants.
