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_013771:393835 Cyanobacterium UCYN-A, complete genome

Lineage: Atelocyanobacterium thalassa; Atelocyanobacterium; ; Chroococcales; Cyanobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: UCYN-A cyanobacteria are species of nitrogen-fixing marine cyanobacteria that lack the oxygen producing photosystem II complex of the photosynthetic apparatus, the enzymes of the Calvin and tricarboxylic acid cycles, as well as several enzymes involved in amino acid synthesis. The cyanobacteria live in symbiosis with photosynthetic eukaryotic cells, specifically those of a single-celled species of algae.
