Query: NC_017058:497500 Rickettsia australis str. Cutlack chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Rickettsia australis; Rickettsia; Rickettsiaceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Animal pathogen in Mammalia (intracellular obligate). Rickettsiae are obligate intracellular Gram-negative bacteria mostly found in arthropods, some of which cause mild to severe diseases in humans. Rickettsia australis causes a medical condition called Queensland tick typhus. The probable vectors are the tick species, Ixodes holocyclus and Ixodes tasmani. Small marsupials are suspected reservoirs of this bacterium.

General Information: Elusimicrobium minutum (strain Pei191) is a mesophilic, obligately anaerobic free-living ultramicrobacterium with a Gram-negative cell envelope isolated from the intestinal cluster from the hindgut of a humivorous scarab beetle larva. This species is an endosymbiont of flagellated protists which occur almost exclusively in the hindgut of termites and wood-feeding cockroaches.
