Query: NC_009505:264963 Brucella ovis ATCC 25840 chromosome I, complete sequence

Lineage: Brucella ovis; Brucella; Brucellaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated from sheep tissue in Australia. Causes brucellosis in sheep. This organism specifically affects sheep, causing ovine brucellosis which results in significant economic losses. Infection by the organism can cause infertility in rams as the bacterium preferentially colonizes the genital tract, and causes inflammation of the epididymis which leads to necrotic lesions and a decrease in sperm numbers and motility. This bacterium, like other Brucella, is an intracellular pathogen that infects phagocytic cells such as macrophages. Bacterial cells produces a lipopolysaccharide that lacks O-antigen side chains, which results in a rough colony phenotype, and aids in differentiation as compared to other Brucella.

Subject: NC_012969:142000 Methylovorus glucosetrophus SIP3-4 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Methylovorus glucosotrophus; Methylovorus; Methylophilaceae; Methylophilales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water. This organism is able to utilize methylamines, potentially significant greenhouse gases, as a sole source of energy. Methylovorus strains are strictly aerobic with respiratory metabolism, are obligate or restricted facultative methylotrophs, and utilize methanol as the carbon and energy source. They are found in activated sludge, mud, soil, pond water and plants.
