Query: NC_017513:997716 Neisseria meningitidis G2136 chromosome, complete genome

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

General Information: The second of two pathogenic Neisseria, this organism causes septicemia and is the leading cause of life-threatening meningitis (inflammation of the meninges, the membrane surrounding the brain and spinal cord) in children. This organism typically residies in the nasopharynx cavity but can invade the respiratory epthelial barrier, cross into the bloodstream and the blood brain barrier, and cause inflammation of the meninges. Pathogenicity factors include the surface proteins (porins and opacity proteins), and the type IV pilus (which is also found in Neisseria gonorrhoeae). This organism, like Neisseria gonorrhoeae, is naturally competent, and protein complexes at the cell surface recognize the uptake signal sequence in extracellular DNA, an 8mer that is found at high frequency in Neisseria chromosomal DNA.

Subject: NC_007498:1666242 Pelobacter carbinolicus DSM 2380, complete genome

Lineage: Pelobacter carbinolicus; Pelobacter; Pelobacteraceae; Desulfuromonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Pelobacter carbinolicus DSM 2380 was isolated from mud in Venice, Italy. Iron- and sulfur-reducing bacterium. Pelobacter carbinolicus is commonly isolated from marine and freshwater sediments, and sewage sludge. This organism can make up a significant portion of the anaerobic microbial community in these environments. Pelobacter carbinolicus is also able to grow using iron and sulfur as terminal electron acceptors. This organism is closely related to the sulfur-reducing Desulfuromonas spp. and iron-reducing Geobacter spp..
