Query: NC_015711:3546500 Myxococcus fulvus HW-1 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Myxococcus fulvus; Myxococcus; Myxococcaceae; Myxococcales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism, like other myxobacteria, undergoes a complex development and differentiation pathway. When cell density increases, the organism switches to "social motility" where aggregates of cells can gather together into masses termed fruiting bodies that may consist of up to 100 000 cells. The motility system is not dependent on flagella like most bacteria, but instead relies on twitching pili: short extracellular appendages that may function analogously to oars in a rowboat. The myxobacteria have proved to be a rich source of novel natural products. Myxococcus fulvus produces a number of antibacterial, antifungal and cytotoxic substances which are being studies for therapeutic applications.

Subject: NC_006087:345976 Leifsonia xyli subsp. xyli str. CTCB07, complete genome

Lineage: Leifsonia xyli; Leifsonia; Microbacteriaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Causes stunting in sugarcand and Bermuda grass. This species comprises two xylema-associated, fastidious, slow growing subspecies that cause ratoon stunting (growth-hindering) disease of sugarcane and Bermuda grass stunting disease, respectively. Pathogenicity has been associated with production of a toxin.
