Query: NC_017259:25400 Buchnera aphidicola str. Ua (Uroleucon ambrosiae) chromosome,

Lineage: Buchnera aphidicola; Buchnera; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: It is believed that the Buchnera provide the essential nutrients the host lacks. Besides a nutritional co-dependence, due to a co-existence of millions of years, Buchnera have lost the ability to produce cell surface components such as lipopolysaccharides. This makes for an obligate endosymbiont relationship between host and Buchnera. Buchnera are prokaryotic cells which belong to the gamma-Proteobacteria, closely related to the Enterobacteriaceae family. Phylogenetic studies using 16S rRNA indicate that the symbiotic relationship was established around 200-250 million years ago. Since Buchnera are closely related to Escherichia coli and Haemophilus influenzae, comparative genomic studies can shed light on the evolutionary mechanisms of intracellular endosymbiosis as well as the different underlying molecular basis between organisms with parasitic behavior and symbionts.

Subject: NC_011047:443475 Candidatus Phytoplasma mali, complete genome

Lineage: Phytoplasma mali; Phytoplasma; Acholeplasmataceae; Acholeplasmatales; Tenericutes; Bacteria

General Information: Candidatus Phytoplasma mali strain AT was collected in Heidelberg, Germany from a symptomatic apple tree. Candidatus Phytoplasma mali belongs to a group of mycoplasma-like organisms (Mollicutes) that infect plants and insects. This organism causes the economically significant apple proliferation disease in Europe. This disease is characterized by floral and phloem necrosis, wilting or general plant decline. Candidatus Phytoplasma mali can also infect cherry, apricot and plum trees.
