Pantoea ananatis LMG 20103

Names Pantoea ananatis LMG 20103
Accession numbers NC_013956
Background The genus Pantoea hosts a number of important plant pathogens and clinically relevant species. It has been isolated from a range of plant hosts worldwide, and its ability to cause disease in several important staple food crops, including maize, onion and rice, has led to its being recognized as an important emerging plant pathogen. P.ananatis was initially isolated in 1927 in the Philippines where it causes fruitlet rot on pineapple. In South Africa, P.ananatis causes severe blight and dieback of Eucalyptus hybrid and clone seedlings/cuttings, which affects the pulp and paper industry. P.ananatis can be associated with plants as an epiphyte, endophyte, pathogen or symbiont, but can also occupy diverse and unusual ecological niches where it may function as a saprophyte. P.ananatis has also been reported to cause bacteraemia in humans. Additionally its ice nucleation activity has been exploited by both the food industry and biological control specialists of insects (adapted from PMID 20348253 and 19400836). (EBI Integr8)
