Query: NC_014500:1491660 Dickeya dadantii 3937 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Dickeya dadantii; Dickeya; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Strain 3937 is a wild-type strain isolated from Saintpaulia ionantha plants in the early 1980s. Dickeya dadantii formerly (Erwinia chrysanthemi) is a phytopathogenic bacterium that causes soft rot diseases on many crops. This organism produces pectinolytic enzymes which break down plant cell walls allowing for the spread of disease.

General Information: This bacterium was isolated from a bovine rumen. Succinic acid producing bacterium. This bacterium is able to produce a large amount of succinic acid from readily available agricultural byproducts. Succinic acid is an important component in the manufacture of synthetic resins and biodegradable polymers. Mannheimia succiniciproducens can grow on media which includes whey, a byproduct of the cheese industry which is normally discarded, and corn steep liquor (CSL), which is a byproduct of corn starch production. The organism has been able to produce production-level amounts of succinic acid in both batch and continuous cultures in media containing these inexpensive components.
