Query: NC_009879:1035446 Rickettsia canadensis str. McKiel, complete genome

Lineage: Rickettsia canadensis; Rickettsia; Rickettsiaceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was originally isolated from ticks in a field study on tick-transmitted diseases of small mammals in Canada. Member of the typhus group of Rickettsiales. Members of this genus, like other Rickettsial organisms such as Neorickettsia and Anaplasma, are obligate intracellular pathogens. In both groups, the bacteria are transmitted via an insect, usually a tick, to a host organism where they target endothelial cells and sometimes macrophages. They attach via an adhesin, rickettsial outer membrane protein A, and are internalized where they persist as cytoplasmically free organisms. Rickettsia canadensis was originally thought to be a member of the typhus group of Rickettsiales, however, it is now thought to represent a distict group with the rickettsia.

Subject: NC_010830:1171781 Candidatus Amoebophilus asiaticus 5a2, complete genome

Lineage: Amoebophilus asiaticus; Amoebophilus; Amoebophilaceae; Cytophagales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria

General Information: Candidatus Amoebophilus asiaticus 5a2 is an obligate endosymbiont found in Acanthamoeba sp. TUMSJ-321. This organism is a member of the highly diverse bacterial phylum Bacteroidetes which includes the endosymbiont lineages represented by the sister taxa Candidatus A. asiaticus and Candidatus Cardinium hertigii, a symbiont of arthropods.
