Query: NC_012997:2254000 Teredinibacter turnerae T7901, complete genome Lineage: Teredinibacter turnerae; Teredinibacter; ; Alteromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Teredinibacter turnerae was isolated from the gills of the wood-boring mollusc, Lyrodus pedicellatus. Dinitrogen-fixing, cellulolytic, endosymbiont. This organism is a rare example of a marine invertebrate symbiont that has been grown in pure culture. They have the unique ability to be able to both utilize cellulose as a sole carbon source and also to fix nitrogen.

General Information: Isolated from a woman with uncomplicated acute cystitis in 1999 in the USA. This strain is drug resistant. This organism was named for its discoverer, Theodore Escherich, and is one of the premier model organisms used in the study of bacterial genetics, physiology, and biochemistry. This enteric organism is typically present in the lower intestine of humans, where it is the dominant facultative anaerobe present, but it is only one minor constituent of the complete intestinal microflora. E. coli, is capable of causing various diseases in its host, especially when they acquire virulence traits. E. coli can cause urinary tract infections, neonatal meningitis, and many different intestinal diseases, usually by attaching to the host cell and introducing toxins that disrupt normal cellular processes.
