Query: NC_011916:467106 Caulobacter crescentus NA1000 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Caulobacter vibrioides; Caulobacter; Caulobacteraceae; Caulobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Caulobacter crescentus NA1000 is a spontaneous mutant derivative of C. crescentus strain CB15. It is used by labs worldwide because it can easily be synchronized, allowing for studies of the bacterial cell cycle. Caulobacter vibroides, also known as Caulobacter crescentus, inhabits aquatic environments and plays an important part in biogeochemical cycling of organic nutrients. This bacterium undergoes an unusual developmental cycle in which a swarming motile cell becomes a stalked cell that is attached to a solid surface. The stalked cell then undergoes asymmetric cell division and produces one flagellated motile daughter cell and one stalked daughter cell. Thus, the asymmetric processes in this organism provide useful models for differentiation and development. This organism also contains a number of energy-dependent transport system, presumably enabling growth in the substrate-sparse aquatic environments that it lives in.

Subject: NC_010338:359940 Caulobacter sp. K31, complete genome

Lineage: Caulobacter; Caulobacter; Caulobacteraceae; Caulobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Caulobacter strain K31 was isolated in an enrichment culture for chlorophenol-tolerant bacteria in groundwater from Karkola, Finland, which percolates through nutrient-poor silt and clay, and is cold (7-8oC), oxygen-deficient, iron-rich, and mildly acidic (pH 6-6.5).
