Lineage: Pseudomonas putida; Pseudomonas; Pseudomonadaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Pseudomonas putida strain GB-1, a fresh water, Gram-negative gamma-proteobacterium, is a genetically tractable, robust manganese (Mn) oxidizer, and as such, is an ideal model for unraveling the catalytic mechanism for, and the molecular regulation of Mn(IV) oxide production and its eventual accumulation on the cell surface at the onset of stationary phase. Since its isolation from Green Bay nearly 20 years ago by Ken Nealson’s group (then at the Center for Great Lakes Studies, Univ. Wisconsin-Milwaukee, USA), it has been the non spore-forming, model organism (along with the closely-related strain MnB1) for molecular genetic studies of Mn(II) oxidization, protein transport and biofilm formation and for biochemical studies on protein purification and Mn(III)-pyoverdine binding. Bacteria belonging to the Pseudomonas group are common inhabitants of soil and water and can also be found on the surfaces of plants and animals. Pseudomonas bacteria are found in nature in a biofilm or in planktonic form. Pseudomonas bacteria are renowned for their metabolic versatility as they can grow under a variety of growth conditions and do not need any organic growth factors. As they are metabolically versatile, and well characterized, it makes them great candidates for biocatalysis, bioremediation and other agricultural applications. Certain strains have been used in the production of bioplastics.

Subject: NC_009801:3013838 Escherichia coli E24377A, complete genome

Lineage: Escherichia coli; Escherichia; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: ETEC is the leading cause of traveler's diarrhea, characterized by a large volume of watery diarrhea. ETEC primarily colonizes the small intestine by way of the pili. This organism was named for its discoverer, Theodore Escherich, and is one of the premier model organisms used in the study of bacterial genetics, physiology, and biochemistry. This enteric organism is typically present in the lower intestine of humans, where it is the dominant facultative anaerobe present, but it is only one minor constituent of the complete intestinal microflora. E. coli, is capable of causing various diseases in its host, especially when they acquire virulence traits. E. coli can cause urinary tract infections, neonatal meningitis, and many different intestinal diseases, usually by attaching to the host cell and introducing toxins that disrupt normal cellular processes.
