Query: NC_012880:3241886 Dickeya dadantii Ech703, complete genome Lineage: Dickeya dadantii; Dickeya; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Temp: Mesophile. Dickeya dadantii formerly (Erwinia chrysanthemi) is a phytopathogenic bacterium that causes soft rot diseases on many crops. This organism produces pectinolytic enzymes which break down plant cell walls allowing for the spread of disease.

General Information: This bacterium was isolated from a seawater sediment sample in the North Sea. The species is able to use Mihagol-S (C14,15-n-alkanes) as a principal carbon source. Using n-alkanes as a sole carbon source causes the strains to produce extracellular and membrane-bound surface-active glucose lipids. Phenotypic analysis showed a restricted nutritional profile, high halotolerance, the absence of fermentative metabolism, and a low G+C content. This, in combination with a 16S phylogenetic study, allowed the placing of this organism into a new genus.
