Query: NC_013766:679906 Listeria monocytogenes 08-5578 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Listeria monocytogenes; Listeria; Listeriaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: This organism, which causes listeriosis, is one of the leading causes of death from food-borne pathogens especially in pregnant women, newborns, the elderly, and immunocompromised individuals. It is found in environments such as decaying vegetable matter, sewage, water, and soil, and it can survive extremes of both temperatures (1-45 degrees C) and salt concentration marking it as an extremely dangerous food-born pathogen, especially on food that is not reheated. This organism is enteroinvasive, and utilizes an actin-based motility system by using a surface protein, ActA, that promotes actin polymerization, to spread intercellularly using the polymerized cytoskeletal protein as a "motor".

Subject: NC_013891:575746 Listeria seeligeri serovar 1/2b str. SLCC3954, complete genome

Lineage: Listeria seeligeri; Listeria; Listeriaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Listeria are Gram-positive, motile, facultative anaerobic bacteria; L.seeligeri is one of the nonpathogenic members of the genus. Strain LSCC 3954, the type strain for this species, is a soil isolate from Germany. A contaminant of soft cheese, processed meat, and smoked seafood. More than 100 strains of this organism have been isolated from environmental samples and healthy animal carriers. This species can be distinguished from other Listeria by its ability to produce acid from D-xylose, L-rhamnose, and alpha-methyl-D-mannoside.
