Query: NC_012856:1080000 Ralstonia pickettii 12D chromosome 1, complete genome Lineage: Ralstonia pickettii; Ralstonia; Burkholderiaceae; Burkholderiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Isolation: Copper-contaminated sediment from a lake; Country: USA; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water, Host, Soil. Ralstonia pickettii can be isolated from a wide range of environmental and clinical samples. This species is a nocosomial pathogen. It is associated with infections caused by contaminated solutions, such as distilled water and intravenous solutions. Ralstonia pickettii strains resistant to heavy metals have also been isolated from heavy metal contaminated environments.

General Information: This strain was isolated from human dental plaque in 1980 and is virulent in a rat model. Indigenous oral bacteria that causes dental decay and possibly endocarditis. Most streptococci are facultative anaerobes, and some are obligate anaerobes. Serologic grouping is based on antigenic differences in cell wall carbohydrates, in cell wall pili-associated protein, and in the polysaccharide capsule in group B streptococci. This microbe is found associated with human oral bacterial communities and can colonize the dental surfaces, aiding other organisms in attachment. Progression of caries and periodontal disease are associated with this microbe as is endocarditis which can lead to death.
