Query: NC_014228:3391500 Xenorhabdus nematophila ATCC 19061, complete genome

Lineage: Xenorhabdus nematophila; Xenorhabdus; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This genus is a group of insect pathogens which live in a mutualistic relationship with the soil nematode family, Steinernematidae. Free-living, juvenile Steinernema spp. enter insect larvae through the digestive tract. They penetrate the larvae body cavity and release Xenorhabdus spp. into the hemolymph (blood). The bacteria multiply rapidly, killing the larvae, and providing suitable nutrient conditions for the growth and reproduction of the Steinernema spp. The nematode matures and reproduces. The new juveniles reassociate with Xenorhabdus spp. and are released into the soil. Unlike Xenorhabdus bovienii, which is found in different Steinernema spp., Xenorhabdus nematophila is associated specifically with Steinernema carpocapsae and can be used as a model for studying host specificity.

Subject: NC_006569:69939 Silicibacter pomeroyi DSS-3 megaplasmid, complete sequence

Lineage: Ruegeria pomeroyi; Ruegeria; Rhodobacteraceae; Rhodobacterales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Formerly Silicibacter pomeroyi, his marine bacterium is a member of the Roseobacter clade and was isolated off of the coast of Georgia in 1998. Dimethylsulfoniopropionate-degrading bacterium. Ruegeria pomeroyi is capable of degrading the organic sulfur compound DMSP (dimethylsulfoniopropionate) and can metabolize a number of sulfur compounds. DMSP is synthesized by marine algae and the degradation product dimethylsulfide contributes to the global sulfur cycle.
