Query: NC_009832:2460027 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: Enterobacter species are found in natural environments such as water, sewage, soil, and vegetables; some species are found in human and animal species. Enterobacter cloacae is a prevalent nosocomial pathogen as it is highly resistant to disinfectants and antimicrobial agents. E.cloacae subsp. cloacae strain ATCC 13047 was isolated from human cerebrospinal fluid in 1890 and is the type strain. These "ICU bugs" cause significant morbidity and mortality, and infection management is complicated by multiple antibiotic resistance. These bacteria possess inducible beta-lactamases, which are undetectable in vitro but are also responsible for resistance during treatment.
