Names Capnocytophaga canimorsus Cc5
Accession numbers NC_015846
Background Capnocytophaga canimorsus Cc5.G. R. Cornelis' lab, Biozentrum, Basel University, Switzerland.Capnocytophaga canimorsus clinical isolate 5 does not express any classical complex virulence function (e.g. T3SS, T4SS or T6SS) but presents a very high relative number of surface-exposed complexes classically encoded by the so called polysaccharide utilization loci (PULs), a hallmark of the CFB group. Recent works in our lab showed that PUL-encoded complexes are not only essential for feeding on host polysaccharides but also required for local control of host immunity by Cc5. The genome of Cc5 is thus a valuable tool for the understanding of commensal cross-talks in mammalians oral cavity and their pathogenic extend when host features change. (NCBI BioProject: bp_list[1])
