Yersinia pseudotuberculosis PB1/+

Names Yersinia pseudotuberculosis PB1/+
Accession numbers NC_010634, NC_010635
Background Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is a soil and water-borne bacterial pathogen that, with Y.pestis and Y. enterocolitica, causes worldwide infections in mammals. Y. pseudotuberculosis serotype O:1b is thought to be the direct evolutionary ancestor of Y. pestis, the causative agent of plague. While these two species diverged from one another within the last 20,000 y, the Y. pseudotuberculosis and Y. enterocolitica lineages separated between 0.4 and 1.9 million years ago. Strain PB1/+ is serotype 1B. (HAMAP: YERPB)
