Query: NC_016510:1874942 Flavobacterium columnare ATCC 49512 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Flavobacterium columnare; Flavobacterium; Flavobacteriaceae; Flavobacteriales; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria General Information: Isolated in 1987 from a skin lesion of a brown trout fry in France. Fish pathogen. Purified genomic DNA obtained from ATCC 49512 F. columnare is considered ubiquitous in the warmwater aquatic environment, and it is the causative agent of columnaris disease in fish. Columnaris disease is common throughout the world and infects most species of freshwater fish, including aquaculture species, wild fish populations, and ornamental fish.

General Information: This is the type strain for this organism and was isolated from the feces of a healthy adult. Common gastrointestinal bacterium. This group of microbes constitute the most abundant members of the intestinal microflora of mammals. Typically they are symbionts, but they can become opportunistic pathogens in the peritoneal (intra-abdominal) cavity. Breakdown of complex plant polysaccharides such as cellulose and hemicellulose and host-derived polysaccharides such as mucopolysaccharides is aided by the many enzymes these organisms produce. Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron is one of the two major Bacteroidesspecies found in the intestine. This organism has been used in studies on gut microflora composition and succession.
