Query: NC_013194:3984377 Candidatus Accumulibacter phosphatis clade IIA str. UW-1, complete Lineage: Accumulibacter phosphatis; Accumulibacter; ; ; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Isolation: enhanced biological phosphorus removal; Country: USA; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Sediment, Sludge. Candidatus Accumulibactor phosphatis is a polyphosphate-accumulating, aerobic, Gram-negative bacterium that has been identified in enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) wastewater treatment systems. Removal of phosphorus from wastewater is important to avoid eutrophication (excess nutrients) in surface waters.

General Information: Causative agent of bacterial ring rot. Isolated from infected potato. This organism was first described and classified in 1914 as "Bacterium sepedonicus" and is considered a major plant pathogen. It is a phytopathogenic actinomycete that causes wilt and tuber rot in potato, which is a plant vascular disease with very high bacterial titers. Pathogenicity is believed to be associated with the presence of two plasmids, pCSL1 and pCSL2. This species is subdivided into five subspecies: michiganensis, sepedonicus, nebraskensis, tesselarius and insidiosus each of which infects specific hosts: tomato, potato, corn, wheat and alfalfa, respectively. Members of the Clavibacter genus are known to produce antimicrobial compounds.
