Query: NC_014483:1431352 Paenibacillus polymyxa E681 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Paenibacillus polymyxa; Paenibacillus; Paenibacillaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Paenibacillus polymyxa was isolated from soil and is a member of a group of free-living soil bacteria known to promote plant growth and suppress plant pathogens. Plants treated with Paenibacillus polymyxa have increased resistance to plant pathogens and increased drought resistance. This organism has been shown to produce a number of compounds with antifungal or antibacterial activity.

General Information: Causative agent of ovine footrot which results in lameness and the loss of commerically important animals. The disease is caused by a mixed microbial infection of Fusobacterium necrophorum, which causes skin lesions, and Dichelobacter nodosus, which can then invade and gain access to the deeper tissue. Once aerotolerant Dichelobacter nodosus infects, which it does through the production of a number of fimbrial adhesins, it secretes both extracellular proteases and toxins which result in damage to the soft tissue underneath the horn of the hoof.
