Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus HD100

Names Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus HD100
Accession numbers NC_005363
Background Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus is a tiny and highly motile delta-proteobacterium that preys on other Gram-negative bacteria. Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus attaches itself to the cell wall of its prey and invades the cell where it goes through a full-life cycle. After it reproduces, the offspring burst out of the cell. Despite its small size, it has a relatively large genome encoding more than 3500 proteins. (HAMAP: BDEBA)
