Query: NC_011773:3689473 Bacillus cereus AH820 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Bacillus cereus; Bacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: This strain was isolated in October 1995 in Akershus, Norway, from the periodontal pocket of a 76 year old female patient with marginal periodontitis. This organism is a soil-dwelling opportunistic pathogen that causes food poisoning in infected individuals. The rapid onset is characterized by nausea and vomiting while the late onset is characterized by diarrhea and abdominal pain. The emetic disease is caused by a small stable dodecadepsipeptide cerulide whereas the diarrheal disease is caused by a heat labile enterotoxin. Some strains produce a potent cytotoxin that forms a pore in the membrane of eukaryotic cells and causes necrotic enteritis (death of intestinal epithelial cells) while the unique tripartite membrane lytic toxin hemolysin BL contributes to the diarrheal disease and destructive infections of the eye.

Subject: NC_014103:4059905 Bacillus megaterium DSM319 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Bacillus megaterium; Bacillus; Bacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Bacillus megaterium is a naturally occurring soil bacterium, originally named because of its large size in relation to E. coli. This bacterium produces a number of useful enzymes, such as, amylases and proteases which have industrial uses. In addition this organism can be used for the production and export of other economically important compounds.
