Query: NC_009524:1627414 Psychrobacter sp. PRwf-1 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Psychrobacter; Psychrobacter; Moraxellaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism grows slower than Psychrobacter arcticus 273-4 at 4 degrees C, but is capable of growth at 37 degrees C, while strain 273-4 is not. Psychrobacter is a member of the gamma Proteobacteria family. This genus is commonly isolated from cold environments, including soil, sea-ice, and the skin and gills of fish. It has also been associated with food spoilage and is often resistant to irradiation used for food preservation. Psychrobacters have also been identified from a variety of human sources. The strain Psychrobacter sp. PRwf-1 was isolated from the skin and gills of Lutjanus vivanus caught off the coast of Loíza in northeastern Puerto Rico.

General Information: This strain was a clinical isolate from Thailand. The genome of this organism carries many genomic islands as compared to the related organism B. mallei, suggesting extensive horizontal transfer. Opportunistic pathogen. This species is an opportunistic pathogen and can cause pneumonia, bacteremia, and melioidosis. It is normally found in terrestrial environments and has been recovered from rice paddies and moist tropical soil. It is endemic in Asia and Australia, but can be found in other parts of the world. The organism can exist intracellularly and can spread through the bloodstream (bacteremia).
