Query: NC_011899:948790 Halothermothrix orenii H 168, complete genome
Lineage: Halothermothrix orenii; Halothermothrix; Halanaerobiaceae; Halanaerobiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria
General Information: Thermophillic halophile. Halothermothrix orenii H 168 was isolated from the sediment of a salt lake in Tunisia. This organism is a member of a group of anaerobic halophilic bacteria related to the Clostridia. This organism is a thermophile and therefore is able to grow in hot anaerobic saline environments.
Subject: NC_006360:857326 Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae 232, complete genome
Lineage: Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae; Mycoplasma; Mycoplasmataceae; Mycoplasmatales; Tenericutes; Bacteria
General Information: This strain is used in laboratory studies of bronchopneumonia in swine. Causes enzootic pneumonia in swine. This genus currently comprizes more than 120 obligate parasitic species found in the wide spectrum of hosts, including humans, animals, insects and plants. The primary habitats of human and animal mycoplasmas are mucouse membranes of the respiratory and urogenital tracts, eyes, mammary glands and the joints. Infection that proceeds through attachment of the bacteria to the host cell via specialized surface proteins, adhesins, and subsequent invation, results in prolonged intracellular persistence that may cause lethality. Once detected in association with their eukaryotic host tissue, most of mycoplasmas can be cultivated in the absence of a host if their extremely fastidious growth requirements are met.
