Query: NC_021150:2348214 Azotobacter vinelandii CA6, complete genome

Lineage: Azotobacter vinelandii; Azotobacter; Pseudomonadaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was first isolated from the soil in Vineland, New Jersey, although it is found worldwide. It is a large obligate aerobe that has one of the highest respiratory rates of any organism. Azotobacter vinelandii also produces a number of unusual nitrogenases which allow it to fix atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia, a compound it can then use as a nitrogen source. It protects the oxygen-sensitive nitrogenase enzymes through its high respiratory rate, which sequesters the nitrogenase complexes in an anoxic environment. This organism has a number of unusual characteristics. Under extreme environmental conditions, the cell will produce a cyst that is resistant to dessication and is surrounded by two capsular polysaccharide layers. This organism produces two industrially important polysaccharides, poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) and alginate. PHB is a thermoplastic biopolymer, and alginate is used in the food industry. Alginate is also used by the pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa to infect the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients.

Subject: NC_013956:1207500 Pantoea ananatis LMG 20103 chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Pantoea ananatis; Pantoea; Enterobacteriaceae; Enterobacteriales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: Pantoea ananatis LMG20103 was isolated from Eucalyptus blight and dieback in South Africa, causing major economic losses of this important forestry crop. Pantoea ananatis is an emerging plant pathogen which causes disease on a broad range of plant hosts including maize, onion, rice, pineapple, melons and Eucalyptus.
