Query: NC_008817:1443983 Prochlorococcus marinus str. MIT 9515, complete genome Lineage: Prochlorococcus marinus; Prochlorococcus; Prochlorococcaceae; Prochlorales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This strain was collected from the surface waters of the Equatorial Pacific. Marine cyanobacterium. This non-motile bacterium is a free-living marine organism that is one of the most abundant, as well as the smallest, on earth, and contributes heavily to carbon cycling in the marine environment. This cyanobacterium grows in areas of nitrogen and phosphorus limitation and is unique in that it utilizes divinyl chlorophyll a/b proteins as light-harvesting systems instead of phycobiliproteins. These pigments allow harvesting of light energy from blue wavelengths at low light intensity.

General Information: This strain (RML 369-C) was isolated in embryonated chicken eggs from a triturated (powdered) pool of unfed adult Dermacentor variabilis ticks collected from vegetation near Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA, in 1966. Transmitted via American ticks. This organism represents the third group of Rickettsial species and is separate from the spotted fever group and the typhus group. This organism is transovarially transmitted in American ticks and shows the largest range of host organisms including Dermacentor and Amblyomma.
