Lineage: Neisseria gonorrhoeae; Neisseria; Neisseriaceae; Neisseriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: One of two pathogenic Neisseria, this species causes the sexually transmitted disease (STD) gonorrhea, which is the leading reportable STD in adults in the USA. This human-specific organism colonizes and invades the mucosal surface of the urogenital epithelium, crosses the epithelial barrier, and ends up multiplying on the basement membrane. The Opa proteins are responsible for the opaque colony phenotype due to the tight junctions between adjacent Neisseria, and are also responsible for tight adherence to host cells. This organism, like Neisseria meningitidis, is also naturally competent for DNA uptake.

Subject: NC_014752:197000 Neisseria lactamica ST-640, complete genome

Lineage: Neisseria lactamica; Neisseria; Neisseriaceae; Neisseriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Neisseria lactamica ST-640 was isolated from a nasopharyngeal culture. This organism is a nonpathogenic, commensal, bacterium closely related to the pathogenic Neisseria meningitidis. While commonly isolated from nose and throat cultures of children Neisseria lactamica is only rarely isolated from adults.
