Lineage: Wolbachia; Wolbachia; Anaplasmataceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Endosymbiont. Obligate intracellular bacterium infects around 20% of all insect species. Naturally infects Drosophila simulans and induces almost complete cytoplasmic incompatibility in its host. Wolbachia sp. subsp. Drosophila simulans (strain wRi) is an intracellular proteobacterium that infect insects as well as isopods, spiders, scorpions, mites, and filarial nematodes. It is maternally inherited and induces reproductive alterations of insect populations by male killing, feminization, parthenogenesis, or cytoplasmic incompatibility. In insect populations, Wolbachia sp. induce reproductive manipulations to enhance their own spreading. The most frequently observed reproductive abnormality is cytoplasmic incompatibility, where uninfected females are unable to produce offspring with infected males, whereas infected females can produce offspring with both infected and uninfected males, thus creating a reproductive advantage for infected females. Other spectacular effects of Wolbachia sp. infections are male embryo killing, feminization, and parthenogenesis induction.

Subject: NC_003911:633393 Silicibacter pomeroyi DSS-3, complete genome

Lineage: Ruegeria pomeroyi; Ruegeria; Rhodobacteraceae; Rhodobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Formerly Silicibacter pomeroyi, his marine bacterium is a member of the Roseobacter clade and was isolated off of the coast of Georgia in 1998. Dimethylsulfoniopropionate-degrading bacterium. Capable of degrading the organic sulfur compound DMSP (dimethylsulfoniopropionate) and can metabolize a number of sulfur compounds. DMSP is synthesized by marine algae and the degradation product dimethylsulfide contributes to the global sulfur cycle.
