Query: NC_009832:1664238 Serratia proteamaculans 568, complete genome Lineage: Serratia proteamaculans; Serratia; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Isolated as a root endophyte from Populus trichocarpa. This species is associated with a serious form of pneumonia in humans, and is the causal agent of amber disease in the grass grub. Interestingly, it also contains an inducible activator which promotes the growth of soybeans under greenhouse conditions.

General Information: Specific virulence factors are encoded within pathogenicity islands (PAIs) that are required for the invasive phenotype associated with Yersinia infections. One key virulence plasmid contained by the three human-specific pathogens is pCD1/pYv, which encodes a type III secretion system for the delivery of virulence proteins that contribute to internalization into the host cell. This species is a food and waterborn pathogen that causes gastroenteritis (inflammation of the mucous membranes of the stomach and intestine) and is able to proliferate at temperatures as low as 4 degrees C.
