Query: NC_009792:1479779 Citrobacter koseri ATCC BAA-895, complete genome Lineage: Citrobacter koseri; Citrobacter; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Citrobacter koseri ATCC BAA-895 is a clinical isolate from a human infant. Causative agent of neonatal meningitis. Citrobacter koseri, previously known as Citrobacter diversus, Levinea diversus or Levinea malonatica resides in a wide range of environments, including soil, water and food products. It is an occasional inhabitant of human and animal intestines, but is mainly characterized as being a causative agent of neonatal meningitis with an extreme high rate of multiple brain abscess initiations and a concomitant high moratility rate. The bacteria are used in neonatal rat models to study the mechanism of blood-brain barrier penetration, host immune response evasion and its resistance to phagocytotic killing.

General Information: Edwardsiella tarda is a Gram-negative member of the normal gut microflora of fish, humans, chickens and other animals. This organism is also a serious pathogen of marine and freshwater fish and has been isolated from channel catfish, Japanese eels, flounder, tilapia, and other economically important fish. Infection by this organism is characterized by septicemia, internal abscesses, and skin lesions. This disease is often associated with poor water quality and mortality in aquaculture can be high. Edwardsiella tarda also causes opportunistic infections in humans, most commonly gastroenteritis and wound infections. However, this organism has been isolated from cases of septicemia and meningitis, primarily in immunocompromised patients.
