Query: NC_014838:589581 Pantoea sp. At-9b plasmid pPAT9B01, complete sequence Lineage: Pantoea; Pantoea; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Environment: Host; Temp: Mesophile. Pantoea sp. (strain At-9b) is a cellulose-degrading Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the fungus gardens of Atta cephalotes leaf-cutter ants. Pantoea sp. has the capacity to degrade cellulose, and thus may play a role as cellulose-degrading symbionts in the gardens of leaf-cutter ants.

General Information: This strain (536; O6:K15:H31) is a uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) that was isolated from a patient with acute pyelonephritis (inflammation of the kidney and pelvis). This organism was named for its discoverer, Theodore Escherich, and is one of the premier model organisms used in the study of bacterial genetics, physiology, and biochemistry. This enteric organism is typically present in the lower intestine of humans, where it is the dominant facultative anaerobe present, but it is only one minor constituent of the complete intestinal microflora. E. coli, is capable of causing various diseases in its host, especially when they acquire virulence traits. E. coli can cause urinary tract infections, neonatal meningitis, and many different intestinal diseases, usually by attaching to the host cell and introducing toxins that disrupt normal cellular processes.
